20 Most Recent Kyocera Finecam S5R Digital Camera Questions & Answers

I'm afraid that the battery you bought as new, in fact is a battery that was in the shop for years, and can't hold enough power.If you camera works normal for one minute and does not run hot or even gets warm, I think the battery is not as good as you think.Can't find since when the camera is around, but my guess is the camera is not that new anymore.Please recharge the battery and use it, and than recharge it again It could take a few charge cycles, before the battery gets its full capacity, but don't expect wonders.

First thing to check is that the battery terminals inside the camera are clean (use a qtip and alcohol, or a pencil eraser). Although a battery or power problem can cause this symptom, so can a lens issue. The following blog details the things you can try to fix it:
Since there are tiny gears that drive the lens, any bit of dust, dirt, or lint can affect the initialization of the lens, and cause it to retract.
If you spray out the lens with compressed air, and try the other fixes, take it into a camera repair shop and get an estimate. Sometimes, it's cheaper to just buy a new one, since the cost of repair can be high.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Good idea. Fixya does not provide a cleaning or repair service - take it to your local service centre.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.
