Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. 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 Emma

    OK, as i should have stated, sometimes the lens rings itself is wedged in to tight, hence, the solution given will not work.

    As for the repoair, you could just tke it to your nearest repair shop if the camera is out of the warranty period. If the camera is still in the warranty period, i would suggest that you take it back to oint of purchace.

    PS, would you mind to consider giving me a better rating, i think 2 thums up is a bit harsh.

    Let me know if you need any further assistance.

    Kind regards
    Andrea

Test batteries to see if they full, the controller thinks either you need to charge the batteries or it is over charged. 2 beeps need charging, 3 beeps overvoltage.

I had 3 beeps, pause, 3beeps, pause and so on.

Defective SMD transistor near the ATX power connector. Original is a 2SB1202 (marking B1202).
I bought a 2SB1203 which is stronger and soldered it in. The K7S41GX board runs as fresh as from the dealer.

Beeps 3 times


Is it an actual beep, or is it a beeping noise coming from the lens? Does the lens extend? I ask this because this is the noise the lens focus gears make when they are knocked out of alignment, or debris gets in them and jams them.
