Sounds like they dropped hard. there should be lock rings floating around inside. if you can get the front objective ring off, the next lock ring,then the objective should come ouy and you can reset the inside lock ring.....any questions give me a call.........larry @reichinstruments.com

Hello, I have an old Tippman A5 (about 5-6 years


You will have to buy a different barrel for the A5, I would suggest ansgear.com, rockstartactical.com, or ebay. Make sure that you get the right threads along with an apex capeable front. I would suggest the sly carbon fibur barrels, or get a autococker barrel and a lapco adapter for your A5. Hope this helps if you have any questions just let me know.

i had exactly the same problem with my camera and have just managed to fix it. turn the camera on, and as as the lens extends remove the battery so the lens remains extended. then make sure the lens barrel is correctly aligned. press down on the front of the lens, when you hear a click that means the lends guiding pins have been re-aligned. BE CAREFUL as this could permanently damage your camera, so do as a last resort if out of warranty. check out link for more

Hi. My parents have a Nikon Coolpix 3700 and are on holiday in Egypt at at the moment. Unfortunately the camera is not working and they are still on holiday. The shutter at the front is not closing and the...


On what must now be a six year old camera this is not an unexpected fault as the lens mechanism does eventually wear out. Parts are no longer available and even if they were the repair costs would exceed replacement costs.

Bad news aside, it's highly likely that in this instance the fault has been caused by a little sand blown into the lens mechanism: the fault can occur with a single grain in the wrong place. If so then your parents should first remove the memory card and with freshly charged batteries try holding the camera face down and giving it a few sharp slaps on the back whilst trying the power button. If this doesn't work then they need to be a bit harder by slapping the front of the camera downwards onto the ball of the hand, but don't slap on the part where the lens emerges! It's not clear from what you've said if the lens is actually sticking out, but assuming that it is they should next try using a finger to sharply flick the side of the lens around the circumference; as before the camera must be face down

If this fails then they are now faced with a kill or cure situation and should try firmly but gently manipulating the lens barrel by either pushing or pulling on the central part of the barrel or trying to rotate the outer part of the lens barrel. This may actually break something else, but by this stage they're faced with a scrap camera anyway and have nothing to lose by trying.

As an alternative, if your parents are in Cairo then they may want to try Foto Express MISR.

They're Nikon's service agents in Egypt and can usually do minor repairs very quickly if no parts are needed and if asked very nicely. But be warned that they will likely be charged more than a local person and this may still make it cheaper to buy a replacement camera. On the other hand, I've usually found that genuine smiles, patience, and a few basic local words for hello, please and thank you will sometimes result in a cheap private cash job or even a free repair. I last used them about seven years ago and was very pleased with the service.

I hope that you have found this answer to be of use and sincerely hope that your parents manage to fix their camera. The fault will not cause any risk to the memory card inside the camera so the photos they've taken so far are safe.

Side out of image


I'm assuming in what follows that you've tried other lenses and only get the problem with this one lens. If you haven't, then it's essential to do this first unless the lens is obviously the problem. If it happens with other lenses then you have a damaged image sensor mounting within the camera body which will need professional attention.

This is a common problem on this particular lens. Normally it's due to the front element of the lens being slightly skewed on the lens barrel and most commonly occurs after the lens has been dropped.

Turn your lens to manual focus and focus to the shortest distance. Set the lens upright on a table and carefully view all around, if the problem is the front element it will lean slightly to one side like a miniature leaning tower of Pisa. If it doesn't, then check again with greater precision using a ruler to measure the distance s between the lens barrel and the focussing ring and a number of opposite points around the circumference. If they're anything but identical then the lens is skewed. If they are identical then the skewed element is buried deep inside the lens and will need professional repair as it's most likely a fault with the moving element used for image stabilisation.

If the tests confirm that the front element is skewed then if you're really careful and lucky you can often jiggle the front element using a firm twisting action back into place. It does take a bit of judiciously applied brute force and if unsuccessful you can make the problem worse, but either way if you don't try then the lens needs professional repair and new internal parts.

I've had this problem on about one of these lenses every month or so for the last year. The brute force repair works in about half the lenses I try it on and normally lasts. On the others a strip down repair usually shows the same range of broken/worn parts as I find on those lenses which clearly are too far gone to attempt the brute force method.

The difference is cost: the brute force repair costs nothing. The proper repair is often economically unviable as it often costs 50% to 70% of the cost of a brand new lens with a warranty.

try these:-
  • connect it to pc and on it
  • vaccum the barrel of lens
  • changing mem. card and batt. for 2min.
  • shake it.
  • on and off in different positions
  • hit the part near lens softly with palm (trust me this made mine work)

I733 POARIOD PICK CAMERA.


I just dropped mine last night and the lens got in this funny bent position, so I popped it back to where its suppose to be. Now the camera turns on and off without the low battery signal but the lens doesn't retract or do anything by itself anymore. I can hear the little motor running that retracts the lens, but the lens itself doesn't actually move when I hear the little noises. So now, I have a wonderful camera with the lens stuck out. I should state that I have the i631. It's just like the i733 but one megapixel smaller. I've the receipt from the retailer that I bought it from so I'm hoping polaroid will at least look at it. I bought it back in June! It's only 4 to 5 months old!

I'm not sure if this will work for all of you, but try plugging it into your computer. When I had this issue for no apparent reason, plugging it into my computer seemed to awaken my camera out of the protective sleep mode that it was in. Sadly, it's not working for me this time.:-(

Remove Lens Cap


We had the same problem with our FZ8. My wife had dropped it and it must've knocked the lens barrel sensor out of whack. I searched google and found a suggestion saying this message occurs when the lens barrel is out of alignment. (http://www.fixya.com/support/t186189-some_reason_camera_keeps_comming_up)

With the lens barrel out, I gently pushed the barrel up, down, left, right and put a little pressure in. Somehow, the barrel worked itself into the right position! The camera works perfectly know. Its worth a shot to save $$$. Be gentle!!

For some reason my camera keeps comming up with a "REMOVE LENS CAP AND PRESS > BUTTON" error but the lens cap isn't on the camera :(


it sounds like the lens barrel is out out alignment. Possible the barrel was stuck while it was extended. There is a sensor on the lens barrel asemmbly that must be in the correct position after the camera is turned off. If this doesn't happen then you will get this message..at least this is what I have experienced in my repairs on this camera

Lens error


Does it stay when you turn it off and back on again? These cameras have a function that shuts the camera down when there's a mechanical obstruction to the lens extension, It shuts it down to prevent more serious damage to the mechanism. Problem is, sometimes when triggered it doesn't return to normal. Try resetting it, either by the regular procedure, or by taking out the batteries for a few minutes. keep in mind that the lens barrel of this Casio unit is almost all the way to the left edge of the camera. Inevitably, when you hold the camera with two hands, one of the fingers of the left hand will overlap onto the front left edge of the unit, which, in fact, puts a portion of the finger on top of the edge of the extending lens barrel, either slowing its extension outward or aborting the extension process altogether. Even when you instantly jerk your finger away instinctively when the barrel rides the edge of your finger, you still have affected or interrupted the barrel extension process. In my opinion, a design flaw, but who am I to say? Good luck ;]
