Your camera most likely has a lens error, this is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Casio service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed the cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose by trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras with lens errors and is not model-specific.

If the link doesn't work then cut and paste the following address into your browser:-

Dropped my camera and now lens stuck out and beeps and switches off


Hi

Do you get a E18 in the bottom left on the camera screen before the Canon PowerShot A95 switches off?

If you do see this error code then t
he problem could be because dirt or sand has got into the lens mechanism.

Firstly you should contact your local Canon repair centre and Canon may fix it for free. If this fails you can try the suggestions below, but you do so AT YOUR OWN RISK as this could make the problem worse.

Make sure the batteries are new or if you are using rechargeable batteries they are fully charged.

a) Remove the batteries from the camera, and unplug any USB cable. Wait for 5 minutes, then put them back in and switch the camera on.

b) Try using compressed air with a fine tip. Use between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should remove any dust or sand. Turn the camera on and see if operates correctly.

c) Another, slightly unusual method is to gently tap the padded USB cover part on a hard surface. Amazingly this does sometimes work.

d) Lastly, you can try and force the lens back into the camera. With the camera switched off place the camera on a surface with the lens facing up - look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If it is not even all the way around the lens VERY VERY GENTLY press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. Hopefully you should hear a reassuring "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on.

If these suggestions do not work then you are looking at a professional repair.

My camera makes a clicking noise when i record video. why?


This camera has an auto lens. Which means it will focus automatically every second you can turn this option off:
1: Go into the menu
2: Chose option Cam Settings
3: Switch AUTO focus to single lens and click OK.

V570 Dual Lens, will not switch to ordinary lens.


Hi, My V570 works fine on widescreen lens (the default on startup) but when I zoom up to switch to the other lens it goes to a dark blank screen and will take a similarly dark blank picture. I can hear the zoom activating as I click it so I think that is ok. I opened the camera

Not able to shoot photos


OK, I have this camera and it started doing this to me about a week ago.  I assumed it had reached the end of it's life after many, many excellent photos.  As a last resort when the lens popped out after first switch on (when it's doing the clicking business) I grabbed the lens and wiggled it gently back and forth (as if zooming a conventional SLR).  It appears to have been fixed, remarkably!  I switched off and switched it back on and all seems OK.  (I'm not holding my breath and will probably keep looking for a new one but for the moment it's sorted out.)

Camera switches itself off seconds after turning it on


This is a service center job and I think the lens assy motor is jammed. Take to a near by camera repair center
