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

WB610 Camera buttons & lens aren't working as they should?


As soon as the camera is switched on, the lens barrel will come out. Everything should be ready to shoot pictures. If it is not responding to the buttons, you could try to remove the battery for a few moments. It will cause the camera, to start from scratch. Call it a cold boot. But then after switching on, it should respond normal, like you used to work with it. If it stays frozen, visit your dealer or contact a Samsung certified repair centre.

Every time I turn on the camera it sais Error 99 could anyone explain it to me .thanks chris


According to ehow:

Turn off your camera and remove the memory card, lens, battery and time/date secondary battery. The secondary battery is a small, round battery about the size of a dime found in the same compartment as the main battery. It is located in a vertical slot. Slide out the secondary battery by pressing your finger on the battery and pulling it toward you.
  • Place the body cap on your camera to keep dust out. Attach the front and back lens caps on your lens to prevent scratches and other damage.
  • Let the camera sit for 20 minutes. This will clear the camera's memory.
  • Place the date/time secondary battery and a fully charged primary battery in the camera and turn it on.
  • Press the shutter release button (the button you push to take a picture). If you are still receiving an Error 99, the problem is most likely caused by the camera body itself. The camera body must be serviced by a professional camera technician.
  • 6 Turn off the camera and insert the memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the memory card. Turn off your camera and insert a different memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release again.
  • Turn off the camera and reattach the lens. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you receive an Error 99, turn the camera off and remove the lens.
  • Turn the camera so that it is face down, and gently clean the lens contacts on the camera body with a number 2 pencil eraser or soft cloth. The lens contacts are the eight small, gold pieces on the bottom of the lens mount. Be careful not to let any of the eraser scraps fall into the camera body.
  • Turn the lens so that the side that attaches to the camera is upside down. Use the eraser or soft cloth to clean the lens contacts on the lens, being careful not to let any eraser scraps fall into the lens.
  • Reattach the lens to the camera. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the lens. Take the lens to a professional camera technician for repair.

    Lens doesn't work but the letter "F - -" blinks on and off on the camera.


    "F--" means the camera thinks there is either no lens attached or a non-cpu lens is attached. Looked on bottom of camera for a very small reset button. If one is there, turn camera on and press for about 2 seconds. With camera off, remove lens and with a slightly moistened pad, clean electrical contacts on bot lens and camera body. If neither works, see if a different lens does work. If a different lens works, then it is the original lens, if not, it is the camera.

    Lens error; restart camera


    Try one of these two fixes, if they dont work for you follow the link below for further troubleshooting.

    http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html


    Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
    Fix #2: If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 (for older Canon's) means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

    Canon 300d gives error 99 and does not work


    Try the following diagnosis steps: -

    To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
    1. Turn off the camera.
    2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
    3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
    4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
    5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

    Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
    1. Turn off the camera.
    2. Insert the CF card.
    3. Turn on the camera.
    4. Format the CF card in the camera.
    5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

    Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
    1. Turn off the camera.
    2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
    3. Reattach your lens.
    4. Turn on the camera.
    5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

    If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
    If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

    Lens won't open and retract.


    It sound like a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

    Wont turn on properly


    Ive looked all over the internet for a solution to this very common problem. This is the only one that worked for me. When you turn on the camera the green led light comes on. Hold the camera in your right hand while you turn it on and as the lense comes out, bang the camera (lens facing down)against your left palm repeatedly until you notice the led light briefly turn red then green again. You need to do this every time you turn it on.I think shaking it loosens the jarred lens. This was the only solution I could find and although I was tentative about doing more damage this way, I tried it and it works.
