What causes sc305 focus problem

Just a guess but it sounds like something is not aligned properly. Was the FLIR dropped or bumped hard? Try removing the lens, cleaning the contact areas and re-assembling.

My 35-70 nikkor lense focus seems to be blocked by a screw inside. every time i shake it, i can hear the screw rolling inside it.

Lenses, are very delicate things. If you don't have the education or skills and the right equipment I can't advice to open one. Not if you want to use it any longer with the quality needed for good pictures.
When a part came lose, or something broke inside the lens, you better don't use it and bring it to a Nikon repair shop. Ask what they think it will cost you and decide if you want it repaired or you better buy a new one.

My kit lenses, Canon 18-55mm stopped going till F/3.5, even using it in 18mm. Now the mininum it goes is F/5. Any solution for that?

If you are focusing very close that may be a consideration. But if it does not change at any focal length, and focal distance then it will need to be repaired. Or, try for excellent quality used lenses. That lens can be replaced to the same or less than a repair.

My digital G400 minolta fall in a short distance, the lense moves out but no photo appears? what I do?

From the description the shutter is not working, in order to address this the lens must be taken apart to see if it can be salvaged, and there is the matter of a dimmed screen. My sense is replace the camera with a new one, cost to repair will be high something to consider when a camera specialist checks it out.

Misting when viewing through the lens. jenoptem 10x50

If the misting is on the inside there is little you can do except to purge them. Some binoculars are nitrogen filled to prevent moist air from getting inside and then condensing (misting) on the lens when exposed to cold air. If the seals have ruptured and moist air gets inside this may happen.

If it is on the outside try to give them a little distance between your eyes and the lens. You could try an anti-fog lens cleaner but if the lenses are coated this may affect the coating. Make sure you use something that is safe for the coatings. Typically coated lenses will have an apparent color to them when you look at them at an angle. They may look greenish, or bluish or even orangeish.

The camera lense is stuck open and not will close

Hi! Better check it with qualified technecian. It might damage everything if you force it. The lense broke inside. It needs to be replaced or adjust the screw to lossen so that lens will go back to its original position.
Please feel free to comment.

My son dropped my Nikon D40x, cracking a piece of the lens inside. It seem like a clean break; how can I fix it?

First, try it. If it still works, you're in luck. If not, well !!! Once a lens is broken, there isn't much that you can do, except replace it. Camera lenses are compound lenses, except on the smaller cameras. Compound lenses are stacked and glued sets of lenses, with specific distances between sets. If it is an expensive lens, get an estimete for a repair price. It might be cheaper to just replace it.

Jammed Lense)

Make sure the lense is not bent. If so, gently straighten it. This worked with mine.

Zoom Problem

There are two components to a camera lense. One adjusts the final lense distance from the CCD imaging chip the other adjusts the distance between the lenses in the assembly (which zooms the image in and out). It sounds like something inside the lense came loose and when you zoom the lense the focal lense is moving with the rest. The lense will probably have to be replaced if it cannot be taken apart. Odds are something is broken inside anyway. This could be something you might be capable of, I have no way of knowing. If you do not think you are up to the task, have a reputable repair shop do it. Cost should not be excessive. I would think less than $100 US plus the cost of the part. Good luck.
