Will not come on. Took it out of the case and the lens was open so I pushed it back in to close the lens and the batteries are good but still not working.


There is a gear drive that moves the lens, so you may have dislodged the teeth of the gear. There are several things you can try to fix this problem. First of all, make sure the battery is freshly and fully charged. and the camera is off. Remove the memory card, hold the camera (lens pointing down), press the replay or image review button and hold it down then press the Power On button. That does a hard reset on many Nikon cameras. Release the buttons after the camera powers up. Try the lens to see if that fixed it. If it did not, power the camera off, plug the AV cord into the AV jack, hold the camera with the lens down and power the camera on. Having the AV cable plugged in prevents the screen from powering up and gets more power to the lens motor. If this still doesn't fix the stuck lens there are three more things you may try. Hold the camera with the lens down and power off. Press the shutter button down, hold it, and then power up the camera. If there is movement and the lens still doesn't come all the way out, try this a couple more times If there is no success, the next two attempts should be tried knowing they may damage the camera more, but also may fix the problem. If the cost of repairing the camera is close to or exceeds the cost of the camera, these are worth a try. Remove the AV cable, power down the camera. holding the camera by the sides on one end, lens pointing down,
press the power on button and immediate strike the camera into your cupped empty hand fairly hard several times. See if that freed the lens. If not the last try will be the same except this time place a handkerchief folded several times for padding on a table or desk top and strike the free end of the camera on the folded handkerchief fairly hard to try to dislodge the lens. The only other
thing I could suggest you trying as a totally last resort would be to remove the battery and try to gently pry the lens up a little at a time moving the pry tool around the lens a little at a time. If you can raise it to the point you can grasp it, pull it to the extended position and make sure it is straight, rock the lens a tiny bit left to right and see if you hear a click. Sometimes that will reset the pins. Good luck. If none of this helps, you are going to need a new camera.

WHEN I TURN ON CANON POWER SHOT A1000IS THERE IS NO DISPLAY ON LCD SCREEN.


First check that you didn't accidentally press the DISP or DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. Press it once with the camera turned on just to check.
If that didn't help, a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Dropped the Camera, Lens is stuck open


I already tried posting this but I think it falied. Just in case, here it is again!

I just now fixed my own Nikon S220 (very similar to 210) which suffered the same fate as yours. However, I laid my camera down on a cushioned foot-rest (you could use a couch cushion or pillow on a table) with the lens facing UP, pressed down on both sides of lens front gently yet firmly, and BAM, the lens went back in all the way. I turned the power back on and the camera is good as new (except for the small dent from the fall of course).

I suggest you try this before spending $100 on repairs and/or buying a new camera!

Power shot a620. screen is not showing pictures, all icons are there but screen is black? Help please!!


Sounds like you might have accidentally pressed the DISPLAY button on the back of your camera. It turns the screen on and off to save batteries. Turn on your camera, and press this button once again to turn the screen back on.

But if your camera is also taking black pictures,
a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

Polaroid i735 Camera won't turn on. Lens stuck.


I had the same problem, and fixed it by wiggling the lens a little, when turning it on.
After a few tries, it finally wiggled free, and the lens retracted.

Kodak Easy Share Z1275 stuck lens


I have a Kodak 1275. Green light would go on the off and lens was stuck open. Now for solution that worked for me. Get a can of compressed air, like what you use for computer keyboards. Blow the compressed air all around your stuck open lens, not to fast and switch directions of where you blow air around stuck opened lens. Make sure batteries are fresh and fully charged. Tap your camera against the palm of your hand twice, not to hard or you may damage instead of jarring lens lose. Next lay your camera on a table lens facing up, push power button on so camera will try to auto focus and lens should reseat itself and lens should move freely. It doesn`t have to look dirty or dusty, little tiny particles can cause the lens to get stuck and shut off fast because it is a safety feature. If this does not work try plugging your camera into computer so the lcd screen does not try to go on , thus giving even more power to get your lens moving . Do not try to force it closed by pushing or twisting with your hand or you may cause damage that will cost as much as the camera to fix.

It wont turn on, And the zoom is extended.


I had exactly the same problem. Lens stayed open, when powered on you get three beeps and nothing. I found when I pulled the lens out a little harder it gave a little click. When I powered on it worked perfectly.

Lens won't open and retract.


It sound like a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended) Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

You could try the Casio Tech Support team, but if as you suspet it is a matter of dirt- there is nothing to be done except replace the camera- the cost os shippin and examining the camera etc. will come close to its replacement.
