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

When i insert memory card in my camcoder aiptek dzo-v50s,i have got problem.card protect


Look at your memory card. SD and SDHC cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card.

you may have received a USB cable alongwith the camcoder, look for a slot on the camcoder to connect the cable and the other end on the USB port of your laptop:)

Deleting files on HD720p Aiptek camcorder


You are not doing anything wrong. For some reason, Aiptek doesn't give you this option on the camera. You have to insert you SD card into a reader and delete it that way. Ya, I know, doesn't make sense. Also, a feature I hate is it does place your videos into one continuous file. Only video clips, so each time you stop then start recording, it creates a new file. Anyway, I've had my Aiptek since 10/2008 and no problems so far. Great indoor videos. Not too crazy about the still pictures though.

My Aiptek keeps coming on then shutting off! It's brand new, I've tried taking the battery out but it still does the same thing


Mine does this if the battery is not charged. Make sure the battery is installed with the contacts lined up (my daughter is a pro at putting the battery in upside down, and it doesn't connect to anything that way!) and charge it up overnight.

If it's still giving you trouble the next day, post back and we'll try something else.

Aiptek DV3300 do not turn on


Maybe the rechargeable batteries aren't providing enough power. I'm assuming the batteries are recently, fully charged. Rechargeable batteries can lose their charge over time even if they're not being used.
