Re: My Camera is in Dead condition
Digital camera a really a pain arnt they will several things could be causing you problem. solider joint broke, cracked board, loose ribbon cable, any of these will cause your problem. now there is hope. if you are filmier with the inside of a digital camera than tear into it lol. If not you need to send it in to a service center like mine once received we can better determine your problem.

I think the battery is bad. Try to recharge the battery and place it back. I hope it will retract the lens complete. Consider to buy a new battery or a complete new camera, because batteries can cost almost as much as a new camera.
There may be a fault requiring service (probably not economically viable if they won't do it under warranty), but before you go there, does this camera have a "Macro" feature? This is usually represented by an icon that looks like a flower. If you have set that on, the camera goes into an extreme close-up mode and won't focus on items at normal distances.
Some cameras have a "face recognition" mode that tries to find a face in the shot and focus on that, so check your autofocus modes to see if it is set to something odd like that.
If you've recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lend tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. There are no DIY repairs for either condition. If the camera has not suffered a recent drop, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera
which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the
camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with
a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,
steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen
into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of
the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears
the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have
a problem that requires professional repair.
I recently accidently dropped my 602 in water and managed to take out all the aa sized batteries out of the camera with the exception of the internal battery which I could not access shaking out all of the water I left my camera to dry out for three days then I tried it to see if it worked but the was dead is there anything else I can do to revive my 602 other than taking it to get fixed and finding out that I have to discard my camera
