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 centre 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

When I take pictures with my Samsung L201 there are horizontal lines on the picture when I look at them on the camera or computer


Greetings.
To resolve this problem you need to replace the ribbon cable inside the lens shutter.
For the unprepared person, unfamiliar with the repair of cameras - a difficult task. Such work can perform any repair.
For self-repair is necessary:
1 soldering iron, solder, flux
2 Tweezers
3 Screwdriver, small
4 Device for capacitor discharge flash
5 optics for if poor eyesight

Skills:
1 Reading the manual repair
2 The ability to solder
3 understanding of the mechanics of the lens (you must correctly parse and then properly assemble the mechanical part of the lens)

I have a Sumsung L201 digital camera & autofocus will not work. If I try zooming, It does it only once then will beep & switch off if I zoom any closer. if the target is within range, it takes nice...


The non-functioning of the camera can be a fault in the zoom or auto focus sections and may be due to the failure of the Main control system or the drive. This seems to be a mechanical fault and a simple way is to reset.Remove the battery and card for some time. Now replace only the battery and while switching power ON, tap the lens hood on the palm of your hands so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck. When the lens comes out try and pull the lens with care , repeat till the lens comes out totally to free and realign by itself.

If not we need to open and check for a jamming of the lens system:

Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. Unless you are familiar with handling of small devices must the camera be opened. If so check the voltage on the motor drive, check the auto focus and Zoom drives, it must be free with manual movement. If jammed the motor can be removed and released. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
Get estimate before you decide. It will be good to have it checked at the authorised service as you do not have to run around for spares.

Thank You for using Fixya

Hi i have samsung L201 camera. Its memory card is locked. How to unlock it? Anyone please help me to resolve this?


SD cards have a slide switch along one edge. The position farthest from the contacts locks the card, protecting it from writes. The position nearest the contacts unlocks the card. If the switch is already in the proper position, slide it fully the other way and then back again.

The gear inside the lens is stuck, maybe some grit or sand got in there preventing it from operating.
