Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Hey Lackster,
Error 5 is a problem with the flash. Long story short it thinks there is an external flash attached even though the mechanical pop-up still works. It is repairable.

Please let me know if you have any more questions.

Take some shots, take your memory card out and insert into a card reader and see if the shots are there. If yes, then camera is taking shots. If not, then something else is wrong. Theoretically, if the LCD is cracked or broken, the camera should still work, just not the shot preview or getting to the menu system. Why waste time with the shot preview? I never use it. While someone is looking at the shot they just made, I'm busy taking the next shot, which might be the better.

Focus problem?


Hi

Yes, there is a 'macro mode' setting which is what you need to use to take closeup photos.

Put the mode dial on Auto in camera mode, and then press the 'macro' button, its the one with the little flower icon. The macro icon appears on your screen and you can now take closeup photos.

Have fun, darntoothysam com

LCD - Focus


DSLR camera was not made to be used as a point and shoot camera and you cant preview the shot before taking a picture. You are to use the eye piece to focus right. Also before taking a picture, push the exposure button just a little to let the camera focus right.

Its how in the display format error.


Hi,
Try this:

- Turn off your camera and take the batteries out
- Then take the memory card out
- Leave the batteries out for around 10 minutes
- Then put the memory card back in
- Then put the batteries back in and turn the camera on
- Try to see the pic/watch movie again

If this didn't work, check the memory card with a card reader...if it still gives an error then the card might have malfunctioned or needs a reformat.

Good luck!
