Lens stuck I cant believe I have to ask but I seriously need help. I'm having trouble w/my RB & in my frenzy putting on my close-up lens, the arrow & dot werent lined up. You guessed it, now my lens wont come off. Please help! Years ago I made the same slip but for the life of me I cant remember what trick I did to get it to release. I feel like such a novice but I really do need your help. HELP! Thanks for your time!Tracy P.

I had the same problem on a Nikon N2000. I found that putting a lot of mussle to the problem worked. I used a sillicon pot holder around the lens and another person to hold the camera and just put a lot of twist in a slow easy motion. Just make sure the release button (if there is one on your camera) is held in. I guess if you only have 1 person you can find a way to hold the camera steady and tape the release button, I came to find this to work. You just got to get it through your head that the camera & lens is worthless in this configuration and one or the other will give with force. every person that I have talked to that has had the same problem and fixed it this way, has never broken either camera or lens! if it happens to you once it won't happen to you again. experience is the best teacher, I swear by that!!
Good luck with what ever you do!
Neil.

Broke one lens


I believe that you can send these right back to RayBan and they will fix or replace these. Don't send them in without checking first but it is worth checking into.

When I turn my camera on I do not get any type of image on the fold out screen and I also just get a black screen with all the options I have chosen but I cant seem to see"through" the lens


A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open). To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help.

My A460 camera has a diffrent kind of problem which is while clicking a photo in a daylight or well lighted area the picture contains very light where i cant see anything and when i make veido it works...


First make sure that you're in full auto mode and not in manual or any of the special scene modes. Check your rotating mode dial that its set to the first red camera by the blue arrow.

If you already are and were in auto, then a stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).

Now the A460 is not capable of taking 15 second exposures as recommended for the fix. Instead try setting the camera to manual mode, turn off the flash, got to a darkened room, and take a picture. Open the battery door while the red and yellow light are flashing. Repeat as the fix recommends, but please note that there may be only a small hope that this will work as the shutter may be stuck in the open position. This is harder to get unstuck than a closed shutter.

Lens stuck


If the lens is not coming out, its stuck, or it wont completely open or close, that is the lens assembly, that needs to be repaired. You need to take it to somebody, that can either repair it or replace it for you. There is nothing that can be done, other than that......

Slider Prob


Dang, what a weird design. The lens needs to go threw a cycle before it can reach the idle position where it waits for a comand from the user. If its in the closed position and you turn it on it extends to its full range then stops at the idle position. It sounds like it is stuck in some spot between close and idle. Since it cant reach the closed position or idle its shutting down. The only way to get it to work is to try and free the lens so it can cycle threw. There must be a lip on the slider and the lens is stuck on this lip so you cant slide it. Remove the batteries then try and slide the door open try and slide somthing between the lens and the door to free it up. This is the only way to get it threw the cycle. It may need to be serviced It sounds like the switch for the slider door is warn or has broken. It may work again if you can free the lens.
