Question about Cameras
The gearing for the lens has become damaged and the lens can no longer fully extend. As a result, the camera detects a fault when attempting to extend the lens and shuts itself off. The most frequent cause of this kind of damage is dropping the camera with the lens extended. Always used the wrist strap!
Unfortunately, there is no way to correct this at the consumer level for this camera. It is very compactly designed, and the lens is the hardest to get at. Even if you were able to get to it, you'd still need the replacement part for whatever has become damaged. You will need to return this for repairs - although with the price of this camera, buying a new one will probably be cheaper.
