My camera was working perfectly fine yesterday then when I turned it on today the lense came out and made a whirring sound and now won't go in, the picture that comes up is blury and it won't take a picture. Every time I press power it makes the same sound again. I am very careful with my camera and am certain it hasn't been bumped or got dust/sand inside.
Is there any way to fix it?
I tried recharging the battery and that has not made a change

Re: ricoh caplio r5 digital camera
Yjis is a lens mechanism failure
May be dust getting in or a bump[I appreciate you are not aware of doing so]
Try and see if the vacuum nozzle will suck out any grit thar may have got in.
Failing that there us nothing more for you to do
Except throw your self onto the mercy of of the customer support line at Ricoh

All the R series Ricohs have a pretty complicated lens system employing 2 swing-out lenses which can get stuck pretty easily, or worse, broken. If you are very good at taking things to bits you might have a go at fixing it (I've done several that were not TOO bad) since picking up one on Ebay with a good lens unit is almost impossible.
