My camra head fell off and now it will not stay on
Yesterday my camra fell off my counter and landed on the carpet. The head where the lens is fell off and i didnt see anything else fall off. So i poped it back on and then i turned it on to see if it still works and all i got the first stage of turning on. But there was no picture showing to take the photo and then after 2 min. It had shut off. I dont know what to do the battery is fully charged and all. Is there any missing parts that are hard to find on carpets? what should i do is it done borken? Or can it bee fix? Cause im not an expert on camras at the age of 14...
Re: my camra head fell off and now it will not stay on
Don't know if you still have the camera since this is an old post.
It's possible that something got knocked loose inside the camera when it fell. Also possible that that could be fixed but better left to someone who's good at opening up devices with small parts and putting them back together again.
There's a video on youtube (in three parts) where a guy takes one of these cameras apart to tighten the lcd screen and then puts it back together. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Kt4K1X1jITM
If you know someone who's good at that kind of thing maybe they could watch the videos and try to fix the camera.

Open the tailgate.
Under the carpet close to the tailgate lock is a bolt head.
Use your wheel brace to rotate this nut counter clockwise several turns. This will release and lower your spare. Keep turning the nut until you can unhook the carrier and drop the spare down.
Watch out though, if you unwind the bolt too far, the carrier will drop off the threads and can land on your feet (ouch!!).
This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
