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

Hello.. My the autofocus on my xsi is not working.. it sounds like the lens is not catching in a way.. like, the camera is asking it to focus but the lens isn't moving at all... it makes the sound it...


Yes sort of, we have several possibilities first is that if the lens is equipped with an auto and manual switch the switch may have been set to manual or it's positioned between manual and auto focus. Failing that I'd suggest you turn off the camera release the lens from the body and reinstall it making sure the lens has fully locked and you hear it click into place. Remove the battery from the camera for a few seconds and re-install the battery and turn the camera back on. hopefully all will work for you again. Failing this I'd say you have foreign material caught up in the lens barrel like sand dry dust, lint from a fuzzy glove. If that is the case then the lens would need service and cleaned.

IT FAIL AND IT IS MAKING CLICKING NOISE WHEN I TURN IT ON. IT GIVES ME A MESSAGE "LENS ERROR "


Usually that means that you have a bit of grit in the lens mechanism and the camera recognizes that it is taking too much force to open or close. The clicking noise is the camera trying to extend the lens for use. If repeatedly switching the camera on and off fails, you are at a crossroads. You can send it to a repair facility to have the grit removed (assuming the unit hasn't be come damaged in the process). Or, you can take a substantial risk and try to "help" the lens open or close by wiggling or pushing lightly on the lens mechanism to try to loosen the grit. The risk is that you'll break the mechanism for good. I have taken this risk and won, but it's a chance you'll have to decide to take on your own!

Pentax did not support this model well, you would need to get a new lens unit - very costly.
I would suggest you upgrade - Sony sell similar slimline cameras with touch screens.

Tamron lens makes a clicking noise


It is dealing with the films. when closing the lens in the fabric, the electrical film changed its position to an unwanted situation. This makes noise sometimes. It is not important for functinality of the lens. But it only gives you an unwanted noise. There is nothing to do because film dries as the times passes. It needs to be changed but is not cheap. So it is better to go on to use it.

It is making a constant strange noise when it is turned on. does it mean it is broken?


Not necessarily.
This camera has an auto lens. Which means it will focus automatically every second, which makes this clicking sound. You can turn this option off:
1: Go into the menu
2: Chose option Cam Settings
3: Switch AUTO focus to single lens and click OK.

My olympus camera wont take pictures


It sounds as if the lens mechanism is damaged, and when it tries to protract it fails and shuts down.

When you just switch to camera mode, I would try helping the lens come out to get it loose.

If all fails, send in it to be serviced, but expect to pay no less than $80 to get this problem fixed.


Hope I helped,
Tom

W1 Making noises....??


The W1 uses metal rings that slide in place with a tiny hole in the middle to give the required apperture it does not have a diaphram that closes and opens to give the apperture... so what you here is the sound of changing the suitable ring ( or disc) with the apperture ... You can look in the camera (lens side) and change appertures, you should be able to see this happen ... don't click with flash though :) The sound is very low though if you here a loud click there's something wrong.
