My camera ( finepix jz100) wont open and screen says turn off and on again when camera is turned on

It looks like the lens is stuck or jammed. Is the lens damaged in some way? Make sure the lens retracts fully when the camera is turned off. If not the lens is probably defective.

Camera was laid on its face and now lens won't open. worked fine before

This is a situation where the lens has jammed in it housing, there is a motor that extends and retracts the lens. One of two tings have happened, the motor has seized, or the gears have jammed preventing the lens from moving. This will require a camera technician to see if it's possible to repair lens in the housing.

My Olmpus fe-360 wont turn on the lens won't retract and it beeps when I try to turn it on

The lens is jammed, which means a gear is stripped or damaged, or jammed in the lens assembly, and the electronic "brain" is turning it off, since it's not in the right position (retracted). This can be caused by the camera getting bumped while the lens was out, dust, dirt, or sand can get in the lens through the front of the camera and jam it, or the batteries could be weak. After you make sure your batteries are good, and it still isn't working, go to this web page and try their suggestions. They report about 1/2 of the cameras with a lens problem can be fixed trying their suggestions. If that doesn't work, don't have it serviced- you can buy a better new camera than what you would pay a service shop.
The page says "lens error" messages, but it also applies to your problem.

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.

Lens Stuck open on Mz67 hp camera Error code Mz60-022

Was this stuck fully open or was the lens partially opened, or was the lens jammed?

The lens can be removed and replaced with another lens from another non-functioning camera (See ebay). The lens component can also be dissembled. Putting the lens back together is tricky because the parts have to be aligned just right for the lens to work. If working with a Jammed lens, extra care has to be considered not to break any of the moving plastic parts of the lens or that part (if not entire lens) is junk.

With the motor detached from the lens, the lens should extend and retract freely. Use this to test the lens when you dissemble the camera. Be careful of the flash board.
