Well, at first my friend dropped the camera for my Fujifilm f650 and it only showed the bottom left corner and then i got my friend's dad to try to fix it and now the lenses won't pop up and it has zoom...


Hello Sandy

I hope this helps or gives you some idea on how to get it fixed.

Dropping the camera could cause the lens motor to be un-aligned.

1. Take out the batteries then put them back in.

This helps the motor free uo from its jam, now if that does not work Sandy then we are talking repair at this point.

The error your getting Sandy is because the motor is jammed into place or not functioning. It would be better for someone local to look it at that way they can tell you if its worth the repair or not.

Most of these camera when there motor is effected there not worth trying to get thht em fixed, you'r better off purchasing a new camera.

Sandy thanks for using fixya I hope this information was Very Helpful to you.

Only a fix if you know a nurse at the life care center that is willing to look at the phone and use her experiance and expertice in dealing with the elderly to fix the phone problem! My Mom accidenally turned the ans. mach. on, ( she never returns calls anymore) the nurse knew exactly how to turn off. Any way, thanks.

My 50 mm 1.4 won't focus on closer objects only far away now after my mom dropped my camera. What can be done? Is it most likely broken?


yes thats a fair bet,,, it could only be the lens that took the brunt of the smack it had and its now jamming when you try to focus up on close ups,,,
try a difrent 50mm lens on it and find out if im right

Olympus SW 790 won't turn on after hitting the water.


Water and camera do not mix, water corrodes electrical contacts. I would suggest if you are taking a camera around water to buy one of the new water proof camera. Also salt water contact on a camera is like an acid bath. All major camera manufactures repair shops will not repair water damage.

Dark spots on lense when I zoom


You could try taking some of that canned air spray and see if that cleans it up.

It sounds as if the internal firmware of your camera is damaged, you'll need to send it to Sony for evaluation and repair - there are no short-cuts, sorry.

Olymus, She said thet is was dropped, Gets power, seems like lense jammed


Hello Sammy, The lens assembly is a very delicate part of any camera. It contains small servo-motors and inductance coils along with the actual lens. Even service centers are having trouble managing to fix this and these problems lead in most of the cases in the replacing of the camera's lens assembly. I recomand you to go to a service center, present them the problem and then ask them for a cost estimate before they do something with it. I'm sorry this is not what you wanted to hear. Back some time in our history sultans killed the messangers who delivered bad news. :)
