1. Turn the camera off by sliding the ON/OFF switch (to the right of the LCD) down to the OFF position. 2.

If your photos and videos are stored on the memory card, then remove the memory card from the camera and insert it into an USB memory card reader. Connect this USB memory card reader and memory card into the USB port of your working computer. Your computer will see this as an USB Mass Storage Device or an external storage device; you can then open the folder on the memory card and copy the photos and to your computer. Memory card reader is a handy device and is inexpensive. You can copy photos from other cameras and you can also download photos off your memory card to someone else's computer without the need of installing any programs.

a low battery
will do this, so make sure that is not the problem by changing the new batteries....
sometimes there cud be dust or sand particles in the lens retraction passage... blow out air in those places..... this cud help a great deal.... I was able to fix a similar problem by wiggling the outermost part of the lens.as its trying to go in....
also try Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
if that doest help
Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.
if that doesnt help

Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying the above fixes and 7 as a means to provide extra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.

Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.

Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.

if ur still unable to retract the lens....... ur lens motor assembly is broken and wud need replacement..... contact manufacturer as u have no other options
if you felt i ve been of help a very helpful rating is appreciated....

The device is not meant to have the battery changed (?!).
However, I am going to drill out the holes where the screws would go and try and change them myself. It doesn't not make 'consumer' sense to me to have this unit without being able to change the battery. It has a 5 year battery life but I only need this unit once in a while so in 5 years I may only use it once or twice.

If there is any damage/corruption in internal File System structure of the card then MSDC fails to detect the card, so MSDC read sector or MSDC write sector error in memory card arises.

If it is saying "non-playable file" it usually means the format the photos are saved as isn't one the player recognises. Basically, The photos are in one language and the player doesn't understand it. If you or someone you know is good with computers the photos can be reformatted, (translated), into a form the player understands. It isn't a hard thing to do and most laptops and computers have software built in that will do it easily and quickly.

There's probably a port for a cable to attach...USB/HDMI/? Depends on the camera. Try to figure out the attachments needed on each end, and order that cord from Amazon. Or, just take your camera to Best Buy and let them help you. Normally, once you attach the cable to the camera and computer; your computer will recognize it. Then transfer the pics to a designated folder for viewing. Hope this helps.

First, eliminate some of the possible causes:
1. Is the battery low or dead? Use a fully charged battery.
2. Is there an obstruction causing the lens from3 opening or closing - such as sand or other particles.. They have to be removed.
3. Did you drop the camera? That might damage the zoom gears or put the lens out of alignment. Do not shake it. If this has happened, an expert tech might have to disassemble it and adjust. This could get expensive, depending upon where you had it done.
4. Is there an uneven gap between the lens and the lens housing? Turn it off, place it face up, look. If so, apply gentle pressure at the highest gap in order to snap it into place. You should hear a click. Power it on. If it extends and contracts power it off, then try to move the lens in a circular motion until it clicks. Power it on. Twist the largest lens ring until it clicks.
