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

My camera DCR-TRV285 is showing error and playback or recording is not working


When there is error you cannot really operate the digicam in normal. Make sure that there is no jam in its mechanism or there is no dew condensation happen in your digicam. If there is not then reset the digicam on its factory setting. To do this, go to menu, navigate it find, the factory setting, choose it and see what happen. Also you should be certain that the unit is clean inside. I hope my advice help you solve your problem.

Shutter problem


sand in the mechanism? Or other kind of wearout... If the lens cover does not open completely due to some mechanical problem, the camera will not work (there are switches to detect cover full open and full closed). Probably needs some repair, cleaning or replacing the cover gears
