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

This maybe cuased by dust and dirt in the lens assembly. Vaccuum the lens through the cracks and see if it works better?

Sony a200 Flash pops up then flashes as if its shorting and I am unable to take any photos.


Are you shooting in low light? Sometimes the flash will fire multiple short bursts to aid in focusing. If the camera is not in focus, then depending upon your setting it will not fire.

D5100 won't power on with Sigma macro lens atttached


This is not a solution but the same kind of problem.

I just bought a Nikon D5100 and found that my Sigma 105mm macro has a problem. The camera will not power up, but if I turn it on, untwist the lens and then twist it back in, the camera powers up. If I leave it for a few seconds, it powers down again. Provided I keep taking photos, it works, but this is not acceptable because it can take several seconds to get a focus on a close-up, and by time I get the focus, the camera powers down again.

I never had any problems with this lens on my Nikon D80. I also use several lenses, all of which work well with both cameras. It's only the Sigma that has the problem. And I did clean the contacts with a proper contact cleaning solution and a swab, but still no joy. My lenses are made by Tamron, Pro Optic, Nikon and Sigma, and the only problem lens is the Sigma.

System Error (Focus)


The systems control board has detected a problem with the auto focus lens, the focus is controlled by a tiny motor that has jammed or there is a mechanical issue with the camera lens. It will require a technician that is highly skilled to deal with the situation, but the repair cost would probably not be justified.

Olympus FE-230 Digital problem


Someone on here with the same problem mentioned that they shook the camera violently and it fixed the problem of it not focusing. I tried the same thing and actually gave it some light slaps on the tabletop. Well, now it works! I'm somewhat concerned that this fix won't last long.

Like many others' FE-230s, this camera began not focusing shortly after the one year warranty expired. I found my receipt and it turns out that I purchased the 2 year service plan at Best Buy and could get the camera replaced. But, now it works. Will it fail again after the 2 year plan expires? Jeez....

Camara doesn't take pictures


when a please turn on and off again appears there is normally a fault with or in the lens. I dont like to suggest that the camera must be opened by anyone that is not qualified to do the repairs because these cameras have components in that could be damaged and will only make the problem worse.

Hello, there is a problem with the optical unit (lens). Normaly when the camera is in camera mode the lens should go out. In your case it seems that for some reason the lens is stuck. Please contact your nearest Sony dealer. If you want to repair the camera yourself please tell me. I can send some additional info as well. Regards, Arpi
