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

Canon 450d lcd will not turn on at all, viewfinder says busy, and camera will not take pictures


In menu option C.Fn-12 you can choose to switch the display off (or on) when you switch on the camera. The display stays off even if you switch of and on the camera.
Press the button <DISP> and switch off the camera, while the settings for recording are on the screen. After you switch on the camera, the LCD screen will be switched on again.
Please refer toy your english manual, I had to translate, because I don't have the English version.

This will need to be repaired, The issue here is with the autofocus hence the lens is trying to autofocus but cannot, would never recommend a hair dryer. What needs to happend is bring this guy into a local camera shop to have it taken care of, hair dryer in this case will not work and could damage it further,

Olympus FE 230 Problem


I had the same problem. I hit it a long time ago when it did it for the first time. It has been a year since then and it is doing it again. I tried the book solution again and it will not work. I tried holding the lens, no luck, and I tried applying pressure when the lens went back in, again, no luck. Honestly, I don't think I will buy another Olympus fe series camera again. The solutions provided do help the first few times your camera does it, but you might want to start checking the market for a new camera.

spounds like theres a problem in the lens gearing system. if theres a jammed gear and you try to force it you WILL cause 3 times the damage to the mechanism.I fyou know how and only if you know how to dissassemble the front case as well as the lens cover then see if when yoiu loosen the drive motor if you can move the unit or lens assy. if you can then the gear system inside the motor its self is bad and the whole motor assy has to be replaced. if I were you I would contact number800-488-7669 and find out what they charge to repair the camera. Good Luck
