It will not even be covered under warranty so go ahead and open the unit and reallign the lens which will fit very easily and can be fixed too.

It is possible that you have damaged the camera.. and could be a misaligned parts on the retructor, just try to slam/slap the camera on the lower back, while press the retract button..

Hi-

Chances are if you drop the camera is that a part inside of might gotten loose or broke. Look for any physical damage on the lens itself, check for dirts that might prevent lens to retract, if all fails then that means it broke and you need a technician to open it up. If its within warranty, never attempt to open it up and call manufacturer instead.

Thanks for using Fixya!

Don't know how to remove and swap lenses on my olympus sp-590uz


The lens isn't supposed to be removable. With the CLA-11 Adapter Tube you can add an additional lens to the camera, such as close-up, wide-angle, or telephoto. However, these attachments go in front of the lens that is already on the camera.

Camera will not stay on, lens retracks.


If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that's preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera - which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean both ends of the batteries, place them back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you are using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time to replace the batteries, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Olympus Stylus 600/Digital 600 6.0 megapixel


Hi

This camera can be very picky when it comes to the front lens cover... It's not a simple mechanism and has many small parts and gears involved. If the lens cover is dislodged it won't work smoothly, and if the case is dented it will not be able to move properly and this can cause lens problems.

If the lens was out when the camera was dropped, then it's possible the lens was damaged and not the lens cover. Sometimes you can tear down the lens, clean it and rebuild it and it will work smoothly again, sometimes this doesn't work and the lens needs to be replaced.

If you're comfortable opening the camera, first check out the lens with the front body section removed so nothing is blocking the lens cover. Does it work properly now? If not, then expect lens damage to be the issue.

Dropped Camera - Lens won't close


Generally speaking if your camera cost $500 or less, and you can't fix it yourself, it is cheaper to just buy a new one.

Broken camera


It is likely that your lens assembly was knocked out of alignment when you dropped the camera. When things do not line up inside the lens the whole unit cannot move in and out. This malfunction requires disassembly to fix, so you will have to get it to a professional for repair. There are providers online who can repair your camera, and also check with your manufacturer to see if they can service the camera at a reasonable rate. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

My camers is stylus 500 but this was nearest description I could find


dropping of camera, especially on the lense side, gives damages to the lense barrels and their pivots. The moving barrels have small pin like projections which move into the grooves cut into the exterior barrel. when dropped either these pins get broken or they come out from the grooves due to the heavy jerk. If disaligned these can be set back to their normal position without much labour charges but if broken the whole assembly is replaced thus causing lot of payment.
