Dropped camera lens off track. Can I fix it???


Is it bent? Broken? If not, can you put it back on the camera?

If it's bent or not working, it's doubtful YOU can fix it, though a camera repair place likely could.

Hi This morning my canon sx200 is dropped when it was open and i found little bent in lens cover. I could able to take picture also at that instance. But when i tried to turn off, lens could not able to...


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

sounds like when you dropped it it damage the gears in the camera that make the lens not work properly , you may want to take it and get it fix by the maker of the camera sorry.

Lens error


yes, this happened to me, what you have to do is "snap" the lens back in place, if it is bent anyway. if it is not bent and it says lens error, does it the lens come in and out? if not then it is bent if so then there is a hardware error in the switch and you will have to send it to a profesionall. :) hope i could be some help :)

I DROPPED MY KODAK CAMERA WHILE THE CAMERA WAS ON


If you pressed it too hard in, you most likely damged some other parts in addition to the damage caused by dropping it. You need to take out the lense, inspect all the moving parts. Look for broken or bented part. The opened lense should mover up and down easily. Make sure all parts are clean and put the lense back on. Good luck!!!!!!!

I dropped my camera and the lens won't retract. The screen reads lens error restart camera. Even though I have removed the battery to restart the camera, it won't correct its self. The lens stays out.


When you reset the camera you should be able to hear the gears of the camera lens turning. The problem is that the lens is out of alignment so the lens can't slide back in. As the gears are turning, straighten out the lens (you might have to try forcing it in different directions if it's not obvious which way the lens is bent) and it should slide back in. You obviously want to be gentle enough to not break it, but sometimes you have to use a little bit of force based on the severity of the drop. You also might need to try a few times since the gears will only run for so long before stopping. I have fixed a few cameras this way but if the lens is bent too far out of alignment you'll have to get it profesionally fixed.

Lens problem


Dear Customer,
When you say the lens barrel is bent, do you mean that the camera won't turn on ?, or the lens barrel is just bent and it looks outlandish. However if it's not turning on follow these steps:

1) Try to gently re-position the barrel, and make it more stortionate.

2) try to recharge ( or get new batteries ), and see if the lens will withdraw.

Unfornately, when you drop a camera, many warranties are voided, and you have to pay to have it fixed, but i doubt it would be that much money to fix.


Please rate this solution.. Thank You..

From what you describe it doesn't sound good. But here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty they're worth a try:
