It may be more cost effective and satisfactory to get a new camera that has not been dropped. I got a 14.2 Megapixel camera from Amazon.com for like $136 or so and it is a Kodak last year. Prices continue to drop as technology gets better and better.

Otherwise, if you want to investigate how much it will cost to repair, try this link:

Hi Pavel

Sorry but your camera needs to have the lens replaced. The drop onto the floor damaged it and the only way to fix it is to replace it. Wish I had better news for you.

Dropped my LG CF360 cell phone on the tile floor. phone operates fine but screen is now blank. it appeared to be fine immediately after dropping it but now the screen is blank? any ideas?


yes. this is a common fault with any phone that falls on the tile floor, especially if it lands using the screen(even if it doesnt, the screen might still be affected). the only solution is to send it to a repairer because it would require the attention of an expert due to the crack or damage done to the main display screen which in most cases would have to be replaced with a brand new one

Camera has been dropped and landed on lens - lens now wobbly and auto focus not working all the time - due to lens wobble? easily fixable or does it need it be seen? Could be a lens fixing clip fallen off...


Definitely will need to go in for service, I used to fix Panasonic Digital camera's for 4 years. Unit will probably need a replacement lens unit. Not a cheap fix, but get an estimate, or use your household insurance.

My daughter dropped my Canon on the tile floor and now the zoom lens will not open. It says "lens error, restart camera." What do I do?


When the camera was dropped, the lens was most likely twisted. So you either have to try to force it back (be gently) or send it in to Canon repairs.

Sony DSC-T200 Dropped on floor - grinding noise


joy,

thank you for using fixya.

the zoom and focus assembly is at fault, the grinding noise and shacking is a result of s de-railed plastic gear.

if the camera is still under warranty have it serviced, take note that if the gear is broken and not de-railed, mounts may be broken also.

here is an example of the assembly.

It doesn't say lens error? but it won't focus? it is probably the same as the other people who do have lens error displayed on the screen, the lens is broken is what the repair company told me about my s200 when i told me lens error

Cracked Screen- Rough Estimate?


A repair is not likely to be an economical proposition
The cost of replacement and shipping will be well on the way to a new -more uptodate one.

Photo stores do sell a protective tape - self adhesive clear patches to fix over screen to protect them from scratching.
It might also serve as a repair too.

I dropped my Casio EX-Z1000 on a tile floor. The camera turns on and the lens goes out and quickly retracts and camera shuts off. I can still view pictures on my card and can enter info on date, time, etc....


Unfortunitly when ever a digital camera is dropped it can cause the lens to come out of alignment this is what causes the error or problem. The len has several moving parts and can be replace most of the time it knocks the focus motor and zoom motor out of sync thust causing the lens to go out to try and post and sience the camera can tell the alignment is off then the lens goes back in. The repair for this should be around 100.00 I just got through fixing 2 of these for the same problem. Sorry but I hope this helps.

Thanks! IT worked! Awesome! I love this camera of mine and now after three years of ownership it works again! I thought I would try this fix because I have nothing to lose since the cost of fixing the camera would be more than actually buying a new camera.

My problems began when I left my Sony DSC-S60 camera in a very hot car. My genius brother and nephew said the temperture and humidity expanded some of the gears and/or the opening mechanism. They said I would have to take it in for repair or just buy a new one.

I tried new batteries, and jarring and banging the camera somewhat lightly at first on a countertop with no success. I even thought of putting it in a plastic container in the freezer for a few hours to see if I could undue the "heat damage".

At any rate, I just saw this posting and I just dropped it twice on a hard carpeted floor, (truly hard -concrete underneath the carpeting with minimal or no padding) and EUREKA!! It works! It works!!

I might caution those trying this great fix, avoid concrete or tile floors and when you "drop" the camera do so from waist hight at first and try to get the camera to hit on the bottom of the camera, not the delicate front (the lens aperature) fo the camera.

Wow! am I ever happy. My camera back in time for the holidays AND NO MORE LEAVING IT IN A HOT CAR OR OTHER INCLEMENT CONDITIONS!!!! Good luck friends.
