Lens on my S7000 doesn't retract when switched off - now permanently extended - and camera dead


This is going to require service / repair at the shop, not something you will be able to correct.

It turn the power on and on again and nothing happens


This is a common problem for all Sony Cybershot digital cameras. It is saying the error "Access" because whenever you turn it on, the camera finds it hard to retract and open out the lens. Chances are, there is some sand or maybe dust or dirt of These are few things you can do.

You can blow a compressed air on the camera's lens to try to take off the dirt or granule of sand stuck within the lens. Also, you can try to hold the camera from your right hand with the lens facing the ground and hit the camera's base on your left palm. Do this several times.

Let me know if this helped you. Goodluck!

Samsung L100 digital camera beep problem


If the lens is retracted, hold up the camera to your eye and look at the lens. If you see one end sticking out a little bit, push that side in and press the power button. It should work.
If the lens isn't retracted, push the lens around until it is in its regular position. When you press the power button, it will retract and come out again and should work fine.

Hope this advice helps!

How do I fix my camera it goes in and out when I turn it on.


DON'T DO THAT!

This is not a joke........

Use a can of compressed air and blow around the lens while it is extended. Take a relatively firm approach with this problem slap the camera into your palm two or three times.
Not lens down in this case, but using the side or rear of the camera to make contact with your palm
Make sure you have the camera cord around your wrist so as not to lose it across the room.

Do this several times and turn it on and off till the message of tuen ona nd off no longer shows(if it ever did) and the lens retracts and works correctly. The compressed air will help remove any accumulated dust that is jamming the lens.
This is a sony tech fix and not a joke, they charge you $90 to do this and this fault is not uncommon in many of these small cameras
dust and dirt get taken into the lens bay ad eventually cause it to stick. Hence the use of comptressed air with the brutal ap

Turns on but that's all


Oh yes the Sony Click When the camera powers up it must run a duty cycle to check that all circuits and the lenses are functioning properly. What you are hearing is most likely the gear assembly on the lens is out of time. one gear reaches its limit the motor doesn't know because another component is not is the proper orientation and on gear clicks over another. Never reaching the end The software does not get the information that everything is okay and does not allow the camera to function. Suggest professional Repair.
