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

How do I un-freeze lens of Samsung i-Function lens, which is stuck on approx 43mm?


Still your lens is defect. Could be a gear or the motor, or anything inside. You can't solve this yourself. when it is in warranty and it has nothing like a small dent or scratch, just return it to the shop, or visit a samsung certified repair centre close to you.

I have an sl502 camera that I bought new for my son and shortly after I bought it it stopped working. It beeps 3 times and does nothing. I am very dissatisfied as well as disappointed with this product....


Hi Jim

If the camera was bought new and is less than a year old, return to the store where you bought it and ask about warranty repair, or call the Samsung from the paperwork inside the box.

The camera sounds like it has a stuck lens, either from being dropped or maybe getting sand/dirt into the lens gears and jamming it up. There's not much you are going to be able to do with it, lenses are very delicate and complex. Some may tell you to blow compressed air into it or bang it on the table, you can do these things if you like and don't mind risking further damage to your camera.

So: Less than a year old? Warranty repair. More than a year old? Might have to pay Samsung for repair, I don't see refurbished lenses available for this model and a new lens would be about $125 or more. Hope this helps.

Lens is stuck


If the camera was bumped and the lens is stuck for that reason you will need a repair that is not covered by the warranty. If the camera has a defect and it is less than a year old and bought in the USA you can send it off for warranty repair. Take it to you local camera store for them to help.

Camera lens stuck!


Hello Friend,
First i would let you know that the Brand Vivitar is one of low quality cameras, it's sad but it's true.
Now regarding the issue that you have with the lens, you probably drop it because this the only way to have the lens stuck. but anyway, to repair it it will cost you more than a new one. and again i suggest to buy a branded camera like Canon,Sony,Nikon,Panasonic ... these are top quality cameras and you will not have any problem for life except if you drop it ;)
Best Regards,

Black pictures


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see the following for further info and a simple fix that may help:

Lens stuck in the extended position


i don't think the lens mechanism can be repaired, it may need to be replaced, usually for about 50% of what you bought the camera for. there is a company in new york that carries parts for small digital consumer cameras like this : Camera Repair NYC
