I dropped my mx1063 and now the lens won't retract all the way, and when I try to turn it on it starts to make the chime sound, but then just shuts right off again. Is there some sort of quick fix for...


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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

The camera turns on then shuts back off again


hat type of problem is usually associated with a lens extend error.

It is usually caused by weak batteries or dropping the camera.

Keep your eye on the LCD screen when you turn the camera on.
Do you see any type of error message?

Now turn the camera on again and help the lens extend by gently pulling on the lens as it extends.
Does the camera stay on when you do that?

sounds like maybe it's not extending fully, is the lens bent and preventing it from opening all the way?

Camera beeps loud 3 times and shuts right off!!


sounds like a lens error, does the lens extend or retract? You probably have to get the lens back on track, use gentle pressure wiht the camera face down on a towel covered table and turn on to see if the camera tries to retract the lens. I really dislike these types of cameras that extend the lens everytime, if it turns on in your pocket, your doomed!
