Camera lens stsrted making funny weird sound and just won't turn on
Last Sunday we went to see a parade; took some great pictures.
Later that evening the camera started on its' own.
It started to make a weird noise when the lens came out, and then the lens went right back in and ever since it won't work.
Any help? Please!!!!
I can still see the pictures it took, but I cannot turn on the "camera" side to take additional pictures.
Thanks for your help

You should try to get that stupid person to buy you a new camera if the following doesn't help. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.
yeah the same thing happened to my camera last month and I just went to the repair place yesterday. Apprently Casio products arent that sturdy so if they get hit the lens can become misalligned and you can't fix it yourself. A new lens is more than the camera itself so if you have to get a new camera I wouldnt suggest another casio one. Good luck.
It sonds like the lens went with you to the beach on March break. Because it sounds as though there might be sand in the lens. Either that or the camera received a knock or drop.
The lens on the camera needs to be repaired and the camera reprogrammed.
