Hi,

There is less chance the camera can work since you dropped it, however we can give it a try.

Remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth ( heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper).
Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time.
If it doesn't work for you, try changing batteries.

If none of the above steps work and since you've dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens tube (housing) -- a problem that requires professional repair.


Thank you for contacting FixYa

Lines on screen and photos, too bright photos outside


Lines across your pictures or pictures too bright are due to the shutter not closing correctly or at all.
to check this- turn camera on, turn off flash, turn camera around and look into the lens. Adjust the zoom so that the shutter and internal lens comes up to the end of the lens and whatch as you take a picture. You should see the shutter close completely over the lens. If it doesn't move or does not close over completely then there is your problem.
If camera was dropped it could have jammed the shutter open or obstructed it in some way from closing completely.
camera will require repair/ service.
You may have some luck if you power up and down your camera numerous times before taking a picture. The action of the lens opening and closing may free the shutter.

Jammed lerns


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Dropped my Canon A75 and lens would not close


As you've dropped the camera, it's likely that the guide pins became dislodged. Believe it or not, this can be repaired without opening the camera. The following blog post outlines some repair options for a lens error like you're experiencing. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try. For your case, follow the listed steps in sequence, but give repeated tries to Fixes 4 and 7:

Abt digital camera canon power shot A250


When I turn my camera on my starting screen will appear and it will stay on for only 30 seconds and then turn itself back off. The shutter does not move. I think it is jammed. I dropped my purse and the camera was inside of it. I think it may have been the cause of my problems. Im not sure what the correct term is but the part of the camera that sticks out in the front to help focus and get close does not move either. It is slightly out like is is jammed as well... please help I love this camera!

Casio Exilim ex-z700 - lens wont open


Chances are you are not going to succeed. Water dissolves Coke but Kills cameras. Dropping them does the lens drive mechanism no good at all. Well now you are in a rock and a hard place. 1st thing to do is to go and buy the next camera. Then remove batteries and memory card from the existing camera and wet a tissue and wrap it around the lens barrel and let it stand face down for a couple of hours. Then find a poly bog. and in it put some salt or uncooked rice wrapped in a cloth[hanky?] Put hanky and camera in the bag close tight shut for a day. The idea is to draw out the moisture But I reckon you will need that new camera. As for a repair -forget it - these things don't get repaired
