    lens is 1/2 way out and nothing happens no matter shat I do... camera shop said it's probably off the tracks. cheaper to get a new camera they said.

    I tried several new batteries and no matter what the camera won't turn on. Sometimes it's considerate enough to tell me batteries depleted. Usually not; just the little green light goes on for a while and then turns off.

Folks,

Try to assist the machine mechanism. Turn the lenses (force is no necessary) when turning on or off. This should unlock the mechanism.
Good luck!

Lenses are out/won't turn on/off


Hi,
The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.

Hi,

Is the lens totally stuck? Does it even move a little? Did you try to power cycle the camera?

Lens stuck in


You'll need to either take this to a qualified repair shop or replace. Depending on the cost of the repair (Which I would guess as significant) it will more than likely be more economical to replace.
