I have a sl-MC409 and it just keeps searching for dis..


Two possibilities:

1 : the lense is dirty and you need to purchase a lense cleaner to do the job

2: the transport is faulty and these can be costly to repair.

im assuming you have tried different media to confirm the disc you're using isn't damaged and causing the initial problem

30 year old telescope. do lenses go bad?


General tips
  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away. NEVER THE SUN!
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  8. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  9. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects
Specific:
You can clean the lenses by using a camera brush/puffer. For stains: 1 part distilled water 1 part 97% or better isopropyl alcohol. Use a cotton ball to apply. One stroke per ball. Dry with cotton balls working form the center out.
The eyepieces you have are pretty poor. I suspect they are also 0.965 diameter. If so, go to Ebay and get 2 or 3 MA (modified achromat) or Kelner eyepieces They are very inexpensive.Your H20 (lowest power) is not too bad but very narrow field of view.
If your scope uses 1.25 inch diameter eyepieces, your options are too wide to expound here.
You will get a good, low power view of the moon with the 20mm but the sr4's eye relief (distance your eye has to be to the top of the eyepiece to focus) may make it difficult

I own a sony cybershot dsc w35 when i switch on the screen displays "turn the power off and on again" help?


Hi. I had exactly the same problem with my Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-W7. The problem started after while lense was fully open, the battery became 100% empty. I did not have access to new batteries and did not have my charger with me so I put the camera on my car seat and went home. After charging the batteries, I turned the camera Off and the lense retracted 100%. Later on I tried to transfer some pictures to my PC. After connecting the camera to my PC with the dial in the P position and lense fully open I turned the dial to play in order to transfer photos. After transferring the pictures, I turned the camera off and disconnected from the computer.

I turn the camera on to take new pictures next day, The lense would go up, and and turn with lense fully open. It would never close. The screen was black with a message "Turn the camera on and off again". I tried 30 times or more and the same thing would happen again.

Here is what I did to fix my camera and it has been working normally since then.

1- I cleaned around the outside of the lense with lent free cloth

2- I used dust OFF to get raid of the remaining small dust particles from around the lense.

3- While turning the camera off, I pushed (down, up and turn) the lense in (NOT TOO Hard) by my hand. If you push the lense too hard, you may damage the mechanicall moving parts of the lense.

4- After a few tries, the lense retracted 90% +. I then pushed the lense a little harder all the way in, the way it normall retracts. The lense cover also closed 100%.

5- I turned the Camera on and off a few times. It was opening and closing exactly the way it used to. My Cybershot has been working okay since then.

I read a lot and here is what cause my lense to malfunction.

While lense was fully open and battery died, some small particles got on the lense and prevented lense from fully opening or closing.

In summery: two things could have caused your camera lense to malfunction.

1- if you had dropped your camera hard, some mechanical parts may have got damaged or dislocated. In this case you have to open the lense and replace the damaged part, clean and put it back on the camera. This is too risky for most ordinary people. You would most likely make it WORST.

2- If you did not drop it, most likly, some how some small dust particles got on the outside of the lense and they prevent the lense or the lense cover from fully opening and closing. If this is your case, please follow exactly what I did and your camera would be back to normal.

GOOD LUCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Lens error causing camera to not work, HELP!!!


I just had the exact same problem on a friend's Exilim EX-Z75. Since it was useless as is, I was asked to investigate. It turned out to be a mechanical problem in the lense. I'm not too sure if it was a misalignment of the servo motor or if a gear popped out of a guide hole. In any case, if your lense goes in and out as it normally does, the problem is not in the main motor, but in a smaller internal secondary motor that adjusts the focus. Only try this if you are comfortable working with small tools and have plenty of patience. Took me about 3 hours start to finish. Warning: there is a capacitor that can hold a good enough charge to give you a jolt, possibly causing you to drop or damage the camera beyond repair, or short out your pacemaker. Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the circuit board and lense and display surfaces. Just in case you do get the camera working. Cycle the power button until the lense retracts completely. Remove the battery. Remove the case screws (6 on the bottom and 8 on the sides) and carefully remove from internal camera. The lense assembly is held in by some soft spongy spacers and a clip on the bottom corner of the lens compartment. Push the clip and the lense assembly should flip up revealing the back of the lense. Be careful to not put too much tension on the flexible circuit board. The CCD (that captures the picture) in the middle is held on by two screws. Remove that first letting it sit in the lense compartment. Then there is a circular plate that will reveal the focusing motor and gears. Remove the 6 screws and carefully remove the plate. There is a small motor and 3 gears that will be exposed. The center one might pop out. If it does, the small gear on the dual gear assembly faces down. You should be able to pick up the center focus unit high enough to make sure that the focus gears and rods are properly lined up in their guide holes and check to make sure none of them are stripped or out of alignment. The focus rods should be paralell to one another on the side of the focus unit. This is what I believe is causing the lense error problem. I would suggest after checking the alignment that you manually turn the gears so that the lens is all the way up. Turn the brass gear on the motor to make sure that all the gears are turning and moving the focus lense. If you think you have everything aligned properly, it's time to re-assemble the camera. Once you have the back plate and CCD put together, you could try to put the battery back and power up. If everything is ok, you should see a picture on the display and be able to take a picture. (Watch out for that capacitor.) If not, you might want to take it apart and recheck the alignment of the focus gears again. I had to do it twiceeven though it looked ok the first time. Remember, anything not lined up properly in there will cause the camera to malfunction. You should also have a greater appreciation for how sensitive a camera can be. DON'T DROP IT! Good Luck. Phil

I have broken my HP Photosmart R817


I just fixed mine and what came out of the end of the lense housing was the shutter assembly. Your camera will still work but the shutter will not operate for protecting your lense.

What was on the ground from the shutter assembly looked like six parts but actually there's eight:

1 - Front round plate (what you see if shutter assembly was still in the lense housing).
2 - Hair size springs that hopefully stayed in the sides of the front round plate. IF NOT OR EITHER ARE LOST, THE SHUTTERS CAN'T BE SET TO CLOSE SO SKIP THE STEPS BELOW ABOUT INSTALLING THE BLADES.
1 - back round plate (black with four tabs).
2 - Larger L-shaped blades.
2 - Smaller L-shaped blades.

Place the front round plate with cosmetic (engraved 'PENTAX...) side down and look at the inside for two round mounting posts on the left and right. You will be using the larger of the two posts on each side for placing the L-shaped blades.

Place the larger L-shape blades with the hole end onto the posts. Blades should swing freely and their backs match with the shape of the inside of the front plate when open.

Place the smaller L-shape blades on top of their respective larger L-shape blades with the hole end onto the same posts used in the last step. Blades should swing freely and their backs match with the shape of the inside of the front plate when open along with the larger L-shape blades.

Springs (long ends) will need to notch into the smaller L-shape piece end (nearest the hole/post end). This is a real trickly part of the assembly and I used two tools like large pins or needles to pry the spring into the notch. If you can't do this, no sense in even leaving the four L-shaped blades inside of the front round plate since the shutter will not close properly without the springs.

Align and snap the back round plate tabs onto the front round plate. The shutter assembly is now ready to put back into the lense assembly.

MAKE SURE THE CAMERA IS IN THE OFF POSITION AND THE LENSE ASSEMBLY IS RETRACTED!

Align the front of the shutter assembly with the engraved wording properly oriented (not sideways, not upside down, etc.) and press gently into the lense assembly until completely in the end of the housing.

If blades were installed properly, they will open when the camera is turned on, and close when the camera is turned off.

If blades were not installed, the empty shutter assembly (back round plate snapped onto front round plate) can still be pressed into the lense housing...the shutter will just not work and the lense will always be exposed. Actually, this is one helluva lot easier than fixing the shutter assembly and not the end of the world for your camera's operation!
