Camera not switching on

Replacing the batteries with fresh one's do not solve the problem. Putting the camera on Auto has no reaction. the lense does not extend neither does the display lid up. I have tried various types of batteries including rechargeables all have the same net result. The does not switch on - no reaction what so ever.

Take batteries out . Find a pencil with an eraser on the end, and with the eraser 'polish' the contacts at the base of the compartment. Also the contact strip in the lid. If this model takes 2 AA batteries find a piece aluminium foil to 'pack' the lid out. If it takes 4 batteries make sure two pieces of foil across each contact. Replace batteries -give it a whirl If no joy press the battery compartment lid in firmly an try. Still in trouble Then this is a more serious job for a repair shop However do get on to the Technical Support at Konica[Now Sony I believe] to see if any other remedy is available.

Is adding grip for nikon d5100 solve the problem of auto focus with sigma 170-500 lens

No. This lens lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the camera to have one. The D5100 lacks an autofocus motor, relying on the lens to have one. Adding a battery grip does not change this situation.

The D5100 only autofocuses with lenses having an internal autofocus motor. Nikon designates such lenses AF-S, Sigma calls it HSM. Lenses without the motor will only autofocus with the larger and heavier Nikon cameras such as the D7000.

When turning on the camera the lense comes out and then goes right back in. New battery and memory card

Hi! Try putting your camera down on flat surface with lens facing up. Look at the outer ring of your lens and locate the small round lens located at 11 o'clock. Clean this with a que tip and see if solves your problem. This little lens works with cameras auto focus and if dirty will cause your problem. Good luck!

Dimage Z3 lens does not retract

Check your batteries. Are they working? Try taking them out and replacing them. If you left the camera on when you put it away and the batteries drained, you won't be able to retract the lense until fresh batteries are inserted and the camera is powered up again.

Lense will not retract even after camera has been charged

When the lens will not retract and camera is not functional (no picture on display, and does not shoot) , and you already tried replacing batteries with a new fresh set (ensure please) , and then restarting camera with no memory card inside, then camera is faulty.

Try an easy fix by pushing gently the lens (do not force them, just help them) while you turn off camera at same time. Try also switching the mode selector.

If still no luck , then the camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.

Possible reasons are :

  • Faulty lens mechanism or jammed lens (camera usually turns off by itself in this case)
  • Main board faulty.
  • Ribbon cable to main board broken or connector defective.
  • If there is no power at all it is the connector from batteries to main board, this is also a ribbon cable.

If the camera is less than one year old will be replaced by manufacturer.

If your warranty is expired you can get an estimate for repair from manufacturer, or from a third party like Advance Camera here :Advance Camera Repair you can book the repair online.

Sony camera turning itself off...

You can't use regular alkaline batteries in this camera. Alkaline batteries only supply 1.5 volts. The camera uses 2 in series for a total of 3.0 volts from alkaline. However, the camera requires 4.2 volts to operate correctly. This camera has high power requirements, so you'll need high end lithium or nickel hydride batteries that can supply the higher voltage and current this camera requires. It's a power hog, and regular alkaline batteries are too weak to run it. The menus will work on alkaline, but once you try to turn the camera on in capture mode to take a shot, the current requirements to operate the camera motor, LCD, zoom, memory stick, etc, all it once is too great a draw for alkaline to handle. Either use the external power supply, or get Lithium batteries. Make sure the batteries you get are 2.4 volts and not 1.5 volts. Get the ones with the highest current rating you can find.
