I am Sorry to hear regarding the Problem.This is a ' Lens Problem ' which is Quite Common on these Models.

It is not worth to get it Repaired, as the Cost of repair would be quite high as compared to the cost of the new camera.

There are a number of things you can try:

1. Ensure batteries are fully charged

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand or other dirt etc

3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 2 minutes and refit

If no luck then we have to try some things that could possibly result in damaging your camera so should only be tried if happy to take that risk...

5. Try thumping the camera into your other hand, by thumping into your hand you are trying to jar the mechanism loose, by using your hand you will hopefully not do it too hard or it will hurt. You may need to do this a dozen or so times in different places to work. I have found the flat of the camera bottom into the flat of your hand best..

6. If the lens is stuck in the out position then remove the batteries and try twisting the lens first one way then the other, do not apply excessive force when doing this or you can break gears, you are trying to reposition not force... Likewise if the lens looks like it is crooked you can try pushing it back into position. This has a higher chance of doing more harm than the thump so please be careful...

7. Dismantle the camera, not for the faint hearted, you need to dismantle the lens assembly into the main body of the camera

If no luck then only other option is a serviceman I'm afraid, be sure to get a quotes as camera repairs can be uneconomical

Let me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

The odominater cluster light is out cannot read miles

The cluster lights you are referring to are dimmed/brightened using the interior light selector near your headlight on/off switch. Try rotating or toggle the selector until you feel or hear a slight click and you then should have lights again.

No reverse lights on 1995 chrysler cirrus

The red-blue wire is a direct link between the relay and the lights, there is nothing between the two components.
Is there power coming out of the relay for that wire ?
The b/w wire is power from the same fuse the shift selector switch is powered from. The red is power from the shift selector and the w/r is ground from the computer.

My Kenmore frontload washer Model 417 sometimes sticks in the fill cycle and will not advance.It will stay that way for hours just running water.If I advance the knob just a bit it will continue as...

Your water level sensor, or perhaps the selector switch itself, is faulting on you.

Next time it sticks on a medium load, see if you can move it to a light load. If it sticks on a light load, goto medium load. In both cases, if the washer comes back to life (starts to agitate or resumes filling), then your selector switch is out.

If rotating the selector switch doesn't seem to do anything, then your pressure switch / level switch is faulty.

Selector switch and pressure switch are both located in the compartment where the controls are mounted.

Hazards and flashers aren't working

When you turn on hazards and flashers, do the lights at least come on. First check fuses be sure that they are good. Then check for the flasher relay. The flasher relay will usually be near the driver kick panel. I believe in this vehicle it will be a three prong relay. Good Luck.

Oven control, possibly thermostat or oven selector switch

my dacor ER36G oven will not ignite. The top range works perfectly. When I turn on the oven, I don't even hear the gas or the ignition sequence as I used to. The heat preset light just blinks and the oven will not engage. I have reset the circuit breakers just in case, but nothing works.

make sure the lens is properly connected and aligned, if it has been remove recently it may not of been put completely back to the right position causing the contacts to not align. Turn off the camera and remove and then remount the lens. The motors and the cost to replace/repair are almost as much as a new lens. Your lens can and should last a long time unless it has recently been dropped or tried on a camera (forced) the wrong way and the contacts were bent or damaged.
