Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

Hi,

Did you try taking out the batteries out for a few hours to reset the camera? Did you eliminate the possibility that the batteries can be the cause of your problem?

A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Here is a website that lists the things to do and check to try to fix this problem:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/simple-fix-for-dead-cameras-that-wont.html
Mostly this consists of ensuring that the battery is good, and holding a full charge, and also making sure the battery contacts are clean, both on the battery and inside the camera.
As a last thing to check, the switch could be bad. The next web blog talks about another problem the camera could be having, which is a lens "stuck" issue:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
Even though it says lens error, it still apllies to stuck lens.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Dmc-fs15 lens locked out


Hi.

It is called a lens error. Problem is called by dert inside lens gears or by a part that has became defective. In some case, the lens try extending, as they cannot reach full extension they retract or stall, until the camera shuts down. In your case the lens extended and got stuck.

First step is resetting the camera by removing battery for one minute. Ensure that you put fully charged battery and restart. In some occasions the reset may work.

First try removing internal battery and restarting the camera, also ensure that the camera is not set in PC mode, but in shooting mode.

You can attempt pushing the lens gently back in the camera while turning the camera off. Sometimes this can help the lens back in.

If that does not work, then the lens must be taken apart.
The lens assembly is very delicate and it is made of small gears and parts. If you do not have enough experience, with DIY disassemblying there is always a good chance that you end up with the camera turned into a bulk of tiny bits and pieces.

I summarized the problem in this article: Lens Error.

Try following the steps in the article if that does not work I suggest calling Panasonic at the number listed on manual. You can also get a quote from a third party service here: Repair.

The lens is stuck 1/2 way out and I am unable to access the menu and have taken the batteries out and even replaced them.


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Lens stuck


If the battery is fully charged, and you are able to turn on the camera but only the lens wont come out, then try doing this:

1. Hold the camera from your right hand with the lens facing down.
2. Hit the base of the camera to your left palm as you press the ON button to turn on the camera. Do this a couple of times until the lens comes out.

Chances are, your camera's lens is stuck inside because of some granule of sand or dirt stuck on the sides of the lens inside. Goodluck!
