Ricoh caplio r5 digital camera

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 Thanks

    Same problem with Rich R3 and Brand new Ricoh R7. Lens locked in open position and camera does not work any more. The R7 is covered by warranty but I am hoping to avoid sending it away. Has anyone found a solution that worked for one of the Ricoh digital cameras?

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

The image taken by my Ricoh Caplio R5 has horizontal lines across it. This happened after I deleted the previous images ready to start afresh. I then bought a new SD card to see if that resolved the...

Hi

The fact that the lines started appearing when you deleted images from the Ricoh Caplio R5 is probably coincidental.

It sound as if the problem is a faulty image sensor (sometimes incorrectly called the CCD or CMOS sensor, depending on what type).

If it's under warranty, contact Ricoh and have them repair it.

Camera jam

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.
