If there is visible damage on the lens then there has likely been a physical blow to the lens that may have forced it back. These lenses are made with plastic gears for zoom and focus and they break easily. The first part of the power up cycle is to check the lens and if it gets no reaction then you won't be able to power on.
Unfortunately (or fortunately depending on your view) the camera prices are coming down so fast that most repairs aren't worth the investment as they start generally at $100 and go up from there. Since this is at least a four year old model the equivalent replacement is likely considerably cheaper and better than your current model.

Kodak easyshare Z650 lens extends and retracts


I only can think of two reasons. The first, the battery does not have enough power. As a safety precaution it shuts itself down, to avoid damage to the saved pictures. Because if the voltage is to low, it can't write with 100% accuracy.
Second: something is blocking free movement of the lens. This could have a cause inside the lens barrel, and you won't see a thing. It also could be a minute damage on the outside of the lens. Or what sometimes happens while putting the camera on, you touch the lens barrel. I assume you did remove any lens cap attached to the camera.
So if you can't see any damage to the lens barrel, charge the battery and try again.

DVD not reading problem solved


Often DVD problem needs reset, which will overcome power line glitches. Remove from power line for five minutes Then power on. This can solve 90% of the problem. DVD has more capacity for data and the tracks are finer, so the lens had to be clean. Use rubbing alcohol and cotton can remove smoke or oil vapor. Same on the track of the lens assembly. Then us cd or vcd to work the dvd player so it will run the mechanism smoothly. After a while of testing, you can start using your dvds.

Cleaning laser lens has to be gentle and only damp cotton. Touch gently with cotton so the lens mechanism is not damaged. Otherwise you have to replace the whole DVD. TDK lens cleaner dry method also works but will not damage your laser lens mechanism.

Turns on for a few seconds, lens starts to extend, turns off.


Assuming that the battery is OK, the most likely cause for this behaviour is an out-of-kilter lens drive. If you are lucky it's just some dirt or grit jamming the lens. Try blowing some compressed air in the lens grooves, or place the camera with unextended lens down and gently tap it to dislodge any dust or sand. Repeat while lens is extending. If this fails, GENTLY try to help the lens extend. Do not force (you risk permanent damage to the lens, assuming there is no damage now). If the lens rotates while extending, still gently try to help it to rotate, twisting in the direction of rotation.

Unfortunately, it's possible that the lens drive is actually damaged and can't be realigned manually. In this case the camera will need to be repaired. Also, even if you succeed in refitting the lens - you'll hear a slight "click" and the lens will start working happily - you'll need to exercise extra care in case the drive is no longer up to spec.

Unfortunately, "extending lens" cameras are very sensitive to accidents such as turning on while something is blocking the lens from extending fully. In most cases there's an overload sensor which will retract the lens and power off the camera - but sometimes the overload will have damaged the internal drive train, which is often (not very cleverly, in my opinion) made of plastic instead of metal.

Sony DSC W30 digital camera, lens unit problem


Hi!
If you're sure you didn't damage the lens flat cable which connect to the motherboard, the focus of the lens unit you bought on ebay doesn't work. You can simply replace the back part (with focus) of the new lens unit with your old one. It requires soldering.

Ex-z9 lens is bent and wont retrack. PUSHING THE POWER BUTTON GETS A LENS ERROR MESSAGE. aNY WAY TO GET LENS UNSTUCK


There is no DYI fix for your damaged lens, and attempting to repair it yourself will likely cause serious damage to the camera. Professional repair is needed to fix this problem.

Camera will not power on. c5500 olympus


HI,
To my regret,it seems like a problem with the lens servo motor.The lens unit can become damaged if it's opened while it was in your pocket, or in its case. The power button gets pressed and the lens attempts to extend, the lens gets jammed and the servo motors is damaged.
This problem should be repaired by a certified technician.

pls rate my suggestion....

Have a Canon Power Shot SX100 IS...Lens error, restart camera... I have changed the batteries, etc., however, the lens will not "colaspe"... PLEASE HELP!!! Thank you...



If the lens does not extend/retract when the camera is powered on, then lens assembly is damaged.

Unfortunately, such Canon SX100 (and the SX110 too) has a very fragile lens assembly, and it's damaged very easily. Most of the times the internal gears, the plastic post guides and the motor are damaged at the same time, so the only solutio is to replace the whole lens assembly.

The lens replacement requires a qualified camera repair technician, unless you want to try in repair it yourself, which requires tools (scredrivers, soldering iron, desoldering tool, magnifier glass with light, etc).

Best regards,

Try removing your memory card. I had the same problem and this worked. You might need a new card. Good luck.

LENS ERROR


it is difficult to put back the lens assembly if you don't have any experience....you may damage the gear and the flexwire if you not properly align the lens...since you already open the lens try to not damage the gear and flexwire...dont' apply some power to the motor...just a manual operation to the lens when you align it...
