    my lense gets stuck too, tried everything recommended, shaking, tapping, wiggling switch, batteries in and out etc., New batteries do not help either. its a shame because it really is a very easy camera to get on with. only six months old. thought samsung would come up with a solution as it seem a problem for nearly all owners.

My daughter's S730 had a similar problem, but the lense was askew from top to botton, not left to right. First I tried pressing it into place. No joy. Then I tried pulling. It popped out, and now goes in and out as it is supposed to.

We dropped our Samsung s730 (twice!) and got the lens jammed slightly sideways. I read a blog somewhere about this and just did what she said- If it is stuck out and obviously jammed sideways, push on the lens the way it should sit. I had to press really hard, but it snapped back into place and now works fine!

This WILL NOT work if: The lens retracts normally and goes back out normally, or it is not OBVIOUSLY stuck slightly askew. Sadly, with cameras this low in price about the only option is to replace it as repairs would cost more than a replacement.

In the future I plan on getting a squaretrade.com damage warranty on ALL my small 'droppable' electronics, it is pretty inexpensive (usually the same price as 'store brand' extended warranties that only cover defects).

My casio exlim exz80 has len error message and lens does not retract


The lens is driven by a minute gear mechanism. When the lens opens, but is jammed, something has to give, and usually it's a tooth on a gear. Sometimes it's just dirt or sand, impeding the movement, and you can try to blow it out with compressed air, but if that doesn't work, I would consider buying a new one, they're very inexpensive these days, compared to the price of a repair shop!

Casio exlim EX- Z29 lens error upon power on


If you've recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track -- either of these problems will require professional repair. If the camera has not been dropped, your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may be too weak/worn to properly power the camera, or the camera may require professional repair.

Camera lens stuck


Look at some of my posts today.
This may be that the lens is off track and may be able to be pushed back by a little force as you start the camera....see my other posts on this problem.

Lens is stuck open


We had the same problem with a Casio Exilim. Had been stuck for months...had nearly given up until I saw another post about banging the camera pretty forcefully to get the lens unstuck. I hit it once on the bottom onto my desk(w/ paper and blotter on the desk-so soft), then twice with the back of the camera against the desk. I turned it on and the lens was unstuck!! Immediately took a couple pictures and it seems to be working fine! If the camera may be lost, you've got nothing to lose to try this out...Good luck!

You would need to send it in. They won't send you parts like that. Call 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 2 and they will tell you where to send it.
