No send it back they are the only people that will deal
More over - the likely cost will be very near the cost of a new high spec camera.

Lens Cover not fully open


It sounds like a problem with the firmware in the camcorder itself. As an authorized Sony repair person, I have gotten no technical bulletin on this model. The firmware is preloaded into the microprocessor IC. You will need to have this unit looked at by an authorized Sony repair center who specializes in camcorder repairs or send the unit to a Sony factory service center. good Luck

My camera stopped working suddenly. When I turn


Hi,

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. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.

Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).


Thank you!

Hi,

Tentative solution:
I had the identical problem. I went as far as disassembling the camera ... not recommended.

Instead of fussing with the lens cover, I pressed on the lens assembly (gently), the lens retracted and the lens cover closed.

My camera works now. It will be my last Kodak.

Good Luck,
Mike

Lens cover stays in between, won't open nor close


Had a similar problem once. Fixed it by opening the camera and freeing up the lens cover.
1)Undo 2 screws each side and the base (6 in all) ignore the one on the front edge of the base for now.
2)Separate the base from the case (gently!) don't pull them too far apart, because they're joined by ribbon cables.
3)Then remove the long screw you ignored above, and again carefully separate the front panel.from the body.
4) At this point, you should be able to access the back of the lens cover, and free up the mechanism.

Once that' s done, put it back together, reversing the above sequence. Don't force anything, just make sure they're all lined up and fit before inserting the screws.

good luck.

Disc read error


Your PS2 lens is faulty or it is physically jammed in it's metal rod which stops the lens to move smoothy. you better open the PS2 console and observe it offline for jam. or replace the lens with a new one.

Phone dropped in water


Water + Phone = BAD ! Your phone is most likely damaged beyond repair if its been out for a swim. It sounds like its got some corrosion inside, when its turning off by itself. Most water-hazards is to costly to repair in comparison to getting a new phone, so your phone might work for now, but it wont get any better with time. The switch on the back-cover can be repaired with som super-glue and a little handy-work. Allthough if its the switch on the phone itself you've got a problem, since its soldered in. Then you need to take the phone in for repairs by a pro.
