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've had my blackberry for about 7 months, and not long ago the plastic bit at the top came off, and the chip underneath has bent foward and now the screens gone white, my phone turns on but i can see...


the plug for the screen is at the top left of that phone if any part of the board has been damaged you can try a cellphone repair place or if you have insurance on the phone it might be best to replace the phone, if you don't have insurance you can find cheap phone on craigslist just make sure the esn is clear before you buy it once the mother board is damaged it is difficult to fix the phone unless you can find a place that can do very detailed soldering....

My screen is completely white with blue lines.


You might have bumped the LCD screen, they break really easily. You can replace it yourself by ordering one on Ebay for about $25.00. A repair shop quoted me $125, but I would buy a new one in that case. It's not hard to change one, but you have to be careful, and make sure you discharge the flash capacitor. If you google the problem mentioning the make, model no., and add "changing LCD screen" you will find a lot of articles on it. Good luck, and maybe get a hard case for your next camera.

Canon Powershot A70: LCD screen went blank - I can still access all menu functions (timer, resolution etc), but the screen is completely black otherwise. If i take a picture using the manual view finder,...


I had a A70 that would still take pictures, but the screen did not show a picture. I did some research and found that this is somewhat a common problems with some of the Canon Powershots to include the A70 where the LCD screens expire. I believe that if the camera gets too hot, such as being left in a vehicle the LCD seperates. I sent my camera to Canon and they fixed it for free. It took about 4-6 weeks to receive my camera back, and now it works perfectly. They did a great job on communicating with me, and fixing the issue. I think that alone is worth buying a Canon. The link below should help you.

BROKEN SCREEN. I HAVE INSURANCE FOR A YEAR


Hey MALENATATI,
If the insurance you are talking about is a service plan from a Best Buy™ store and the service plan is an ADH plan it should cover the repair of the LCD screen. If this is the case you need to take the camera to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out to be repaired. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Don't know if i have insurance


Hey areli_pm,
Yes our Best Buy™ stores should have record of any performance service plan you have on your camera. The performance service plan should also be listed on the receipt for your camera.
