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. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

I cannot retract the lens back to my Rollei 35 se


Your question seems to be mis-categorized under slide projectors, if you are asking about Rollei 35 SE camera, the lens will only retract if you cock the shutter with the wind lever, then press the button next to the shutter release and rotate the lens a few degrees.

I have a Rollei 2.8 projector lens that is loose inside. how do you take it apart to see if it can be repaired?


If you do't have the knowledge or the equipment to align lenses, I don't think it is wise to try to "fix" any lens.

Hi there,
The rollei 600x mount lenses communicate to the camera via the gold plated contacts. In addition, the 350mm PQS is a medium format lens. There is currently no such adapter.
