This kind of lens is not easy to repair. If you are familiar with this kind of technology, try to open and eventually usntuck the optical unit. If not purchase the optical unit part number 178836311. If you need more info please advice. Arpi

Today, I was using it. Turned it off for a whle, went to ues it again & it wouldnt turn on, the power light was on & three beeps came out of my camera! It wont turn off until I take the battery...

Most probably the lens problem, it got stuck or it's damaged. Try to gently pull out the lens to see is it only got stuck or take it to service

Lens,not close properly

If it is your camera's time to go, there is no helping that. Most likely a grain of sand has found it's way into your camera mech. You can turn your camera on and off while banging it on the counter gently, but it is unlikely you will succeed, due to most lens parts use a sticky lithium grease for lubricant.

Lens

ok as of now i have my camera open and i found the source of the buzzing sound, its in fact the auto focus,

<b>I WARN YOU NOW NOT TO DO THIS UNLESS YOU KNOW WHAT YOUR DOING OR YOU JUST DON'T CARE ABOUT YOUR CAMERA, YOU WILL BE TAKING OUT THE MAIN PART OF THE LENS AND COULD POSSIBLY BREAK IT!</b>

to fix it yourself is going to be very hard, but if its any consolation the problem is in a small area inside the lens, see inside the housing for the lens is a small simple machine, better known as the auto focus, its movement is composed of 3 gears, a metal one attached to a small motor, one attached to the plastic that holds the focus glass in place, and one in between them, for me the problem is the gear in the middle and the one attached on the motor getting stuck, its not much force to move it but the tiny motor doesn't have enough power to push it along so it gets stuck, if your going to do this i suggest you have a small precision flat head screw driver, mine is a size 1/32", ok now i would take pics for a step by step walk through but my camera happens to be the thing im working on, lol,

ok what i did was dissasemble the lens *not the lens housing* and i took each of the little gears out and cleand them off, cause im not sure if its stock, but there is a grayish blue like "gunk" if you will call it that on the gears, and after that i assembled it back together and it worked like new again ^-^

Lens is stuck open

We had the same problem with a Casio Exilim. Had been stuck for months...had nearly given up until I saw another post about banging the camera pretty forcefully to get the lens unstuck. I hit it once on the bottom onto my desk(w/ paper and blotter on the desk-so soft), then twice with the back of the camera against the desk. I turned it on and the lens was unstuck!! Immediately took a couple pictures and it seems to be working fine! If the camera may be lost, you've got nothing to lose to try this out...Good luck!

Dropped camera. lens open and crooked

Sorry to say you have broken the lens, replacement of the lens is the only practical repair and if you cant swap one yourself from a dead camera it would be beyond economical repair.
If you are adventurous you could buy a faulty one of ebay and swap the lens or if the faulty one has a broken screen or mode dial swap yours over to the faulty one..
there are a couple of "tricks" do getting this camera open drop me a line if you decide to proceed...

best of luck

Lens cover only partially opens

This blog post outlines repair procedures for stuck lens covers. An A400 is used as an example. But it should be similar for the A430:

Not playing movies

The clicking sound is the lens assy trying to move on the traverse mechanisim and the release spring is ticking. You might want to crack her open and look for any foreign objects in the laser area. You can also try to move the lens assy by hang gently sometimes they get stuck for no reason. Let us know :-)

Optio 450 Lens Stuck Problem

the lens cover gets stuck sometimes. It just needs a gentle touch and it opens up. Only happened once to me. In my case it happened after my daughter held onto the camera with her finger on the lens cover.
