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

LCD SCREEN WILL NOT COME ON....HAVE I PRESSED A WRONG BUTTON....


If the battery is good and if you have triggered the power ON button the camera must come to power. If not remove battery and check the voltage, if low charge till the voltage shows up .
If the camera still does not come on then you have a problem in hand and it is best to get an opinion before you try to open the camera.

Batteries good, but screen shows :batteries empty?


How you know batteries are good? Sometimes new batteries are bad too. Also there is a possibility that you are using wrong type of battery like normal carbon batteries or lower ampere batteries which work fine in other gadgets but will show empty in a digital camera. Digital camera need high ampere batteries like Duracell (if your camera use AA batteries) or rechargeable NI-MH/ Li-ion batteries.

My computer doesn't recognize my camera


I discovered that what iMovie says I should do doesn't work. In HELP it says to set the camera to OC CAMERA. At least that's the closest I could come with my Sanyo camera to what it says in iMovie's HELP. Anyhow it doesn't work but if I set the camera to CARD READER instead it worked the way I wanted it to. I'm all set now.

Logitech Quickcam Microphone not working


on the right hand side of your task bar near the time, you will see a speaker icon, right click on it and open volume control. When the window pops up on the far right should be the mic controls, check that it's not muted. If the mic controls do not show then click options at top menu then advanced and the mic slider controls will now show up.
