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

I can't get rid of 'Lens Error' message and keep my camera switched on for more than a minute.


You don't need to drop a camera to get a lens error. Could be anything, from holding the camera in a wrong way (touching the lens barrel) or a bit of dust in the barrel or a gear, or a gear that breaks off. If the lens retracts correct when the camera is switched of, and comes out to the full extend when it is switched on, you should think everything is in working order. But when you say, the screen looks ver blurry that could be an indication, the lens is not coming out correct, or the focus mechanics does not work correct. I'm afraid you have to bring the camera in to a service centre (or buy a new one) if you can't solve this, by again take out the battery, charge the battery and reinsert the battery.

When i power on the Camera F72 EXR it comes up with an Error message that says turn camera off and then turn back on, i do that an the same error keeps popping up, also when camera shuts off the lense...


Whenever I've seen that before it's caused by the camera being dropped on its lens while the lens was out. It can be repaired though it's fairly expensive too, in my honest opinion you'd be better off getting a new camera.

Camera wont turn on.


This kind of problem is hard to understand just what the problem is. That is because many problems can cause such behavior.

Make sure that if this camera has a switch on the battery door or battery/memory card door, that it is not broken or has anything to do with the starting of the camera. One way to test this is to leave the door open, then try to start the camera. If nothing at all happens, then the switch should be okay.
I would like to know about the history of this camera. Has it ever been dropped, been exposed to water, or had an impact on the lens when it was extended. Any of these can lead to problems like what you have stated.
Dropping a camera can do internal damage, not only to the lens, but to the internal connections.
Water damage can cause unlimited kinds of errors and troubles which may be hard to define. An impact to the lens can damage the internal workings of the lens unit to the point that it can be jammed. The jamming will cause such actions as you mentioned. That is because the lens cannot move, cannot be detected as to position and may cause the camera to stop or shut down.

You might have error on lens mechanism. Maybe a gear or two is broken in the lens system and when turned on gear is not moving to extend the lens to start position. See if you can jiggle the lens slightly while turning the main switch on. If the gear is lightly damaged, it might catch to right position otherwise need new lens assy for the repair.
