Hi

What you are seeing is some sort of problem with the lens, it could happen in many different ways such as sand or dirt in the lens gears or impact damage. If it's under warranty send it in to Sony for free repair!

A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.

Don't bother trying to send the camera to Sony if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.

I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.

We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.

Hope this helps,

Thomas

Fujifilm ax280 won't turn on


You think the lens got stuck. Don't use force, but try if the lens will move a little when pulled or pushed. Take care, there are gears on the lens and if the motor does not work, you will definitely damage some gears. You need power in the camera, to let the motor retract the lens.
If nothing works, you should go to your dealer, or contact Fuji.
I sometimes read you could try slamming your hand where the camera sits in, while switched on, but if you don't know enough about how everything works in your camera, don't do this. Because you end up with a camera that can't be repaired.

This is going to require service / repair at the shop, not something you will be able to correct.

The lens on on my easyshare c195 doesnt retract. there appears to be a obstrution of the lens


There are two things we can try, get a can of compressed air use the attach straw and give two or three good blasts in the crevice "between camera body and lens housing" press power at the same time to try and get the lens to move, failing that! Take the palm of your hand and sharply hit around the lens housing pressing the power in order to get it to retract, this works better with small camera's and gets results most of the time. this second option does involve risk and could make things worse, but the reward of getting it going is even better. The main cause of lens sticking is dirt that builds up over a period of time.

The words "Lens Error" appears on the viewing screen


The lens does not fully extend, that's why it tries again. The lens probably does not extend or retract because of debris or a misaligned gear box. The lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.

Lens will not retract and camera will not work


When the lens will not retract and camera is not functional (no picture on display, and does not shoot) , and you already tried replacing batteries with a new fresh set (ensure please) , and then restarting camera with no memory card inside, then camera is faulty.

Try an easy fix by pushing gently the lens (do not force them, just help them) while you turn off camera at same time. Try also switching the mode selector.

If still no luck , then the camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.

Possible reasons are :

  • Faulty lens mechanism or jammed lens (camera usually turns off by itself in this case)
  • Main board faulty.
  • Ribbon cable to main board broken or connector defective.
  • If there is no power at all it is the connector from batteries to main board, this is also a ribbon cable.

If the camera is less than one year old will be replaced by manufacturer.

If your warranty is expired you can get an estimate for repair from manufacturer, or from a third party like Advance Camera here :Advance Camera Repair you can book the repair online.
