    I have a Sanyo VPC-S1285. For no apparent reason, when it is powered up. The lens opens and the screen flashes blue with sanyo trademark. Then completly powers off. And when the on/off button is pushed again the lens cloces and the camera powers off.

This sounds like a battery issue..either it has an accumulator that do not holds the power anymore,or the batteries you use are not powerful enough to run it ...try some new alkaline real good ones...cause most cameras need powerful batteries to operate ..and will act just like described when use the cheap stuff..

The camera could be having a power or lens issue. The following two websites detail the steps of things to try, and can often get a camera back working again.
This blog deals with power problems, and is the first thing to check.
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/11/simple-fix-for-dead-cameras-that-wont.html
Since lens issues can cause a lens to not initialize, the following blog might help:
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
If none of these steps helps, contact Sanyo for support:
http://us.sanyo.com/Customer-Support
You can get an estimate for repair from them, if needed, and also compare it to a local shop's offer, in case you don't want to send it out.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Do an internet search for picture retrieval software. You can do this yourself and once you have the software, you never have to worry again about lost pictures.

Sanyo VPC s1285 stuck lens.


Hi there,

Well lens errors are very common in these digital cameras. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism.
Check the below link to do a try to correct it -

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

If further you have the same problem it means there is a gear-motor alignment of the lens which moves in and out with the help of motor. This part is replaceable at an authorized Sanyo Service Center. Aprox repair cost is $120.

Good Luck!! Thanks for using FixYa

My camera won't turn on, but the lense is still out


I think you have lens problem. You must fix your lens. I find someway that someone fix their lens error. At the other camera, the warning can be " turn the power off and on again' or "lens error". One post i have take at my blog. I hope is usefull
