I cannot turn the camera on. I guess it was dameged during my holidaying. I recall that, the camera was excidently turned on inside its holder and as the mechanism tried to push the lense out from the body it was blocked by the bag holding the camera. Now, when I try turning the camera on, the lense could not move forward at all. It gives cracking noises and turns itself off. Could this problem be fixed or better to buy a new camera? Arthur

Can you tell me where to purchase a new lens? My daughter dropped my camera, Kodak easy share M1063, and it does not open anymore. Probably a gear is off inside the housing, which I could not open without smaller screwdrivers. I figure it would be easier to replace the whole lens. I have already taken it apart and know that I can replace the lens if I can find one. I had an estimate for an online repairman to fix it for $85 + shipping. For that price I might as well purchase a new camera. Only r

Hi there, I have a Canon IXUS 90 IS - the lens is extended out and won't retract when pressing the 'on' button.

My doughters seemed to drop the camera onto a grass field, while the camera was opened, now the camera cannot be closed properly nor opened. I took out a small straw of grass from the lense, but something seems to be stuck there.

I have had a vivitar camera in the past and have just borrowed one and the same thing happened to both. The Battery ran out and now the lense is stuck out and with new batteries the screen only flashes on for a second then goes off and nothing happens to the lense! This needs fixing because is not mine and needs to be looked into as it is obvioulsy a problem with vivitars in general!

I purchased a Sanyo 12.1 mp camera with 3x optical zoom less than a month ago and for some reason it will not focus on anything. The screen shows everything as a big blur. I have checked the lense to see if there was a possible smudge on it but there isnt and none of the camera settings have been changed. It is also making sounds like it is trying to focus but cannot. Is there any way to possibly fix this?
