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.

What does trouble code P1153 mean?

The upstream (ahead of the catalytic converter) O2 sensor heater circuit has failed. Replaced the upstream O2 sensor and all will be well. O2 sensors wil lnot work below 650 degrees F. To get them functioning sooner after a cold start, and during times when the exhaust is not very hot (idling at stop lights), designers placed a filament inside the O2 sensors to keep them hot so they can measure O2 levels int he exhaust stream (which alloows the engine compouter to mete out the right amonut of fuel to keep the engine running efficiently.) The filament fails open after time so it no longer can heat the sensor. The only solution is to replace the O2 sensor, which is not a big deal.

Tub wil lnot turn belt is good

Hello Ter Man - f the unit is not spinning; does the motor still come on? If not, you may have possible wiring issues between the timer and the motor. Typically, there will be cut wires by the washer lid switch. If the motor is moving, but does not wash or spin, more than likely there is a failure in the transmission. There is a bar and bolt assembly that secures the inner tub to the transmission shaft that may be loose or broken that can cause the same scenario as well. I suggest consulting a professional to accurately diagnosis the unit and to assist with the repairs.

You have to let the system run for a while for the suction pressure to stabilize, if the metering device is a TXV pressure will rise and fall as the valve opens and closes. If this is R22 you need to get the suction pressure up

My ipod touch is stuck on a screen that says "ipod is disabled, try again in 5,785,421 mintues"

Connect your iPod Touch to your computer. Turn your iPod Touch off (hold down the top button and slide the red off slider). Then hold down the top button and the home button for ten seconds then let go of the top button while still holding the home button and KEEP holding it for up to 30 seconds. If it doesn't work the first time, try it again - iTunes should pop up and say that it sees an iPod Touch in restore mode. Click restore and you'll be able to get it back up...

Lens wil not open. Turn camera on and it gives you a "lens error"


The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended.

1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera. If you get an Error E30, it means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Thank you !!

Camera wil not yurn on

This is the service by replacement age No one is going to professionally repair it So if you have the confidence and jewellery screwdrivers to hand why not have a go your self. It is likely a battery conector has broken or an internal connector has come adrift, The ultimate is to buy the replacement.
