I have a Canon EOS 550D camera fitted with a Canon Zoom Lens EF-S 18-200mm lens. I bought both together sometime early in 2010 from London Camera Exchange, Nottingham. I am not in Nottingham at the moment,...


Just a thought - are your Image Stabilizer and Auto Focus switches On or Off?
Might be worth experimenting with them.
Otherwise, sorry, can't help.
May be necessary to contact your vendor.

LENS OPENING BUT NOT SHUTTING


Hi,

Its seems lens got stuck in the barrel due to external shock caused, Try out following steps-

  • If motor is running but lens won't retract sometimes lens would slip off with the gear or break off a tooth in the gear when it gets dropped. Try to gently move the lens barrel around with the finger and see if it is moving, but if tooth or gear is broken lens will move once's or twice then it will stuck again.
  • You can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
  • You can try to turn camera ON at the table (facing it to the ceiling), don't put camera down face to the floor when opening.


Else contact Olympus, your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring at Service Center .

I hope this will solve your problem

Thanks..!!

Have a fujifilm finepix s1000fd and when I use


Your cameras focus lens is probably stuck.
It operates via a long metal rod, a pin which follows a track in the side wall of the lens and a tensioned spring. one or more of these has probably jammed causing the focus lens not to move when you zoom.
Unfortunately for this camera, if you cannot free it by switching on/off, tapping the lens etc, you will have to strip the camera down to get at the lens unit. you will have to discharge the flash capacitor before desoldering the control board from the main board before removing to access the lens.
Recommend you find someone who knows about this or send to Fuji.

Zoom is stuck and it wont stay on


Have you tried using a fully charged battery?

also, there could be a dust build up or a sand residue stuck inside the lens that it why its having a hard time coming in or out eventually.

Try to hold your camera, with the lens facing down, from your right hand and while turning it on, hit the camera gently on your left palm. Try this several times.
