The battery on my GR ran out while I was using it and left the lens out, when I charged the battery and popped it back in the lens refused to go back in and just makes a vering sound and then switches off again. Any ideas?

THE ZOOM WHEN USED GOES OUT AND THEN RETURNS AUTOMATICALLY TO NORMAL


Could it be you mean the lens barrel comes out, but I can't use the camera? Or does the lens barrel directly go back to the "in" position. If so, check the battery, or even better charge the battery. Then check if the lens, on its way out, is not blocked by anything. Because the slightest obstruction, will cause the lens to retract. The camera does this to avoid extra damage to the barrel and or the mechanics behind it.

My Ricoh R8 Digital Camera, the lens is stuck out, and when i switch on the power it make a whirling noise, and then switches off, i was just wondering if there is a way to fix it ? many thanks


The problem is discussed here, but that didn't fix my problem: http://dp-master1.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1013&thread=28522715&page=2

After I left the battery out of the camera for several months, the camera date backup battery seemed to have run out of charge, and then the problem fixed itself. Very strange, and not a perfect solution, but a solution, if you can figure out how to force the internal memory to reset.

I have a Sony AX Digital 100 Camera. I used it yesterday and everything worked fine. Battery is fully charged. Tried to use it today and it won't start. I have taken the battery in and out and even...


Does there is something happened when you turn on the camera? If you can heard sound made by the len or the camera try to open but turn off in a second? If so, there is something wrong with the lens, and this how to fix camera lens error will be helpful. Else, if the camera are without any reaction you can check it the joint of the camera to battery is well.

My Ricoh R7, the shutter is jammed and wont close or open, its stuck half way. I live near Glasgow. Know where I can get a repair done?


If you are sure that your battery if fully charged but still does not do any good, then do this little trick:

1. Hold the camera on your right hand with the lens facing the ground.

2. As you press the power on button, tap or hit the camera's base to your left palm. Do this several times.

Chances are, there could be a sand or granule of dust that got stuck on the sides of the lens, preventing it to retract properly.

Hope this helps.

Nikon D90 battery reset


Seems as if you've killed the battery. You might try charging it again.

Does the camera work with a different battery? If so, I'd just buy a new battery and toss the old one.

Camera lens won't close says error 00000


This is a known problem, they wont easily admit it but we had 2 R6's and an R7 with the exact same issue. If you look on ricoh site they had a firmware patch for the R6 to try and fix this issue but it dis not work.

Lady at ricoh UK admitted there is a design fault with the Ricoh R6 and R7 and she sent me an R8 which has a whole new redesigned mechanism.

Dont let them sell you useless kit, get a replacement free of charge or complain.

Ricoh GR Digital camera


I have a sony cybershot DSC-S650, the LCD was very dark and could not see anything except if I pointed it at a bright object, everything else worked ok. I could take pictures but could barely see them in playback as well.

I took it to Sony authorised repair outlet and was told the CCD was damaged, they charged me USD $55 to repair it (in Quito, Ecuador)

Camera jam


All the R series Ricohs have a pretty complicated lens system employing 2 swing-out lenses which can get stuck pretty easily, or worse, broken. If you are very good at taking things to bits you might have a go at fixing it (I've done several that were not TOO bad) since picking up one on Ebay with a good lens unit is almost impossible.
