Question about Cameras
Posted by Anonymous on
Inside the lens assembly, there is a round, free-wheeling focusing lens and plastic enclosure with electromagnets on it. When dust, lint, dirt, sand, etc. works it's way into the lens assembly, it can get jammed up. When this happens, you can try to spray compressed air into the front of the lens assembly, with the lens facing downward. Hopefully, you will free it up. The other thing you can try is to hold the camera, lens facing up, and gently tap the side with the palm of your hand, hoping to free up the lens. If neither of these things works, the camera will have to be serviced. It's quite a job, and will be expensive, since the whole camera will have to be disassembled. Get an estimate, since the cost of repair can exceed the cost of a new camera.
