Dear Customer,
When you say the lens barrel is bent, do you mean that the camera won't turn on ?, or the lens barrel is just bent and it looks outlandish. However if it's not turning on follow these steps:

1) Try to gently re-position the barrel, and make it more stortionate.

2) try to recharge ( or get new batteries ), and see if the lens will withdraw.

Unfornately, when you drop a camera, many warranties are voided, and you have to pay to have it fixed, but i doubt it would be that much money to fix.

I dropped my slr camera and now the lens wont attach back on


Most likely. If the lens is from a major camera manufacturer, take it to an authorized repair shop and they can replace the mount. If it's a third-party lens then it may be more difficult.

If you want to do the replacement yourself, you may be able to find the appropriate part here. Since you declined to specify the make and model of the lens I'm afraid I can't tell you whether they have it or not, so you'll have to look yourself.

The lens cover does not open all the way. I have to use my fingernail to do it.


It is either bent or has grit and dirt in between the slides. Try using canned compressed air, such as you use to clean a computer keyboard with, to blow air between the slides. If that does not work, even though you will have to be very careful, while the lens cover is closed put a single drop of WD40 on the cover and spread it with a Qtip over the entire cover surface. Holding the camera, front facing down, try turning it on and off several times. If that frees the lens cover, turn the camera off and wipe the surface of the closed lens cover with a soft tissue to clean the WD40 from the surface. Make sure then that your lens is clean before using the camera. If the lens cover is bent, then none of this will work.

The lens want close due to being bent


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Dropped camera now lens wont close. It says lens


Hi,
Remove the batteries and insert new batteries . Sometimes this may work but in your case the lens is stuck inside, or it will have been damaged . Nothing can be done other than taking to service center to get it repaired .

Hope this helps .

The lens wont close and it keeps saying on screen "lens error restat camera" but when i turn it back on it doesnt do anything


Your lens frame - that which moves out when the camera opens is probable bent. Looking down at it from the top and sides, does it look bent? By grasping is firmly but not hard try softly to bend the lens frame in the opposite direction, carefully.

CAMERA TURNS ON FOR A SPLIT SECOND THEN SHUTS OFF


My Z1275 was off with the lens open. When I turned it on, the lens moved a little, the screen came on
for an instant, and then the camera off.

Here is what I did to "fix" it.

I turned it on and helped the lens (gently) close while it was moving. It closed and the camera came on.

It must have been dropped and slightly bent in such a way where the lens could not close.

Good Luck!
