SOURCE: when i turn on my camera the lens trys to come out

Here is a very reasonably priced quote for repair; https://www.teleplancamerarepair.com/quote/cart.asp?iProbID=5&mo=358
note; whatever you do, do not force the lens back in or pull it out. the alignment is off due to perhaps one of the barrels, or sliders, or even the internal rings around the lens. if anything "fell out" of the lens while you were tapping it around, be sure to send it in carefully wrapped for the repair.

This is exactly my problem.


Focus is stuck - could be sand or something in the focus gears. That's the weak spot for these lens. Contact your local Olympus service center or any other camera service center or me at toms.safranovs@gmail.com

Lens Stuck


YOU CANNOT REPAIR THIS SOPHISTICATED CAMERA YOURSELF!!
I guess pushing the lens inside may have made the problem worse.
I follow a rule- if you drop an electronic equipment and a problem occurs- it usually takes a professional repair!
For all you kamow there is a minor problem in the camera, like something stuck inside or something like that. and most certainly you will aggravate the problem by trying to do it yourself..

do post when you get it repaired, for all of us to know what goes wrong when lens gets stuck..
take care

Camera lens stuck


Look at some of my posts today.
This may be that the lens is off track and may be able to be pushed back by a little force as you start the camera....see my other posts on this problem.

Hi,

Tentative solution:
I had the identical problem. I went as far as disassembling the camera ... not recommended.

Instead of fussing with the lens cover, I pressed on the lens assembly (gently), the lens retracted and the lens cover closed.

My camera works now. It will be my last Kodak.

Good Luck,
Mike

Camera lens stuck


We dropped our Samsung s730 (twice!) and got the lens jammed slightly sideways. I read a blog somewhere about this and just did what she said- If it is stuck out and obviously jammed sideways, push on the lens the way it should sit. I had to press really hard, but it snapped back into place and now works fine!

This WILL NOT work if: The lens retracts normally and goes back out normally, or it is not OBVIOUSLY stuck slightly askew. Sadly, with cameras this low in price about the only option is to replace it as repairs would cost more than a replacement.

In the future I plan on getting a squaretrade.com damage warranty on ALL my small 'droppable' electronics, it is pretty inexpensive (usually the same price as 'store brand' extended warranties that only cover defects).

Camera lens comes out and goes back in when I turn it on.


Sounds like the lens can't get into the proper position. Any possibility of damage to the lens?
