Hi,

this might be indicative of a weak battery.

In some instances even if the battery is new or fully charge, the same symptoms would be exhibited. If this is the case, it is probable that the battery contacts needs a bit of cleaning/scraping. Additionally, it may require slightly bending the said camera's battery contacts to ensuire a bit more pressure towards the battery.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Hi again,

    Your initial post that I responded to did not include "lens does not retract" which makes it an entirely different problem.

    The correct procedure with this new information would be to dismantle the erring lens assembly and clean the mechanism. Sand, dust or foreign material lodged between the moving parts would and could prevent lens retraction. This condition prevents the camera from correctly initializing itself. Having said this, perhaps your best bet would be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

    Jarring the lens loose might work but then again might also compound the issue.

Sounds like a power issue. Make sure you use the recommended batteries. Also, some cameras have settings to where you need to change it in accordance to the type of batteries you are using. exp. alkaline, ni'mh, etc.
