Answers :

Your camera almost certainly has a lens error, this\015\012 is such a common fault that I hope you don't mind me pasting my stock \015\012generic answer below. No point in reinventing the wheel!

Stuck lenses are probably the most common \015\012reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair \015\012chance of recovering use of your camera again

The fault is \015\012commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it \015\012having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera \015\012was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and \015\012tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply\015\012 become \015\012dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.

If your camera\015\012 is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse \015\012then contact the Sony service department in your country to find out about a free repair. If \015\012the warranty has expired though a professional repair will far exceed \015\012the\015\012 cost of replacing your camera. You will therefore have nothing to lose \015\012by \015\012trying to fix this yourself.

Please click here\015\012 and you will be taken to an excellent article provided by the Camera \015\012Repair website. For the most part, you'll be guided on how to physically\015\012 manipulate your camera to try and clear the fault. Although the article\015\012 mentions Canon a few times, the advice applies equally to all cameras \015\012with lens errors and is not model-specific.

Good\015\012\015\012\015\012 luck, I hope you manage to use this information to fix your camera, or \015\012at least are able to use the information to help decide whether to buy \015\012another camera. If you do \015\012decide that you have to throw your camera away then don't forget to \015\012remove the memory card as it can be used in other devices. \015\012Please take a moment to rate the free answer I have provided \015\012for you and\015\012 any testimonial which you might wish to add is always welcome.

Zoom Error Just bought an Olympus SP550 Ultra Zoom for my daughter. In less than 24 hours the cam developed a problem. When she turns it on, the zoom lens goes part way out, a message "zoom error" shows on the screen, and it powers itself off. We thought it might just be the batteries, but new ones didn't help.

Power issues. Just recently I've encountered a problem with my camera. After plugging it into my computer (And not noticing the power surge notification on the desktop while doing so). It locked up and powered itself off. I tried turning it back on, and it turned on for a split second then shut off without retracting the lense. I switched batteries and it retracted the lense, but I tried powering it on and the lense only came halfway out and it powered off. I've tried 4 fresh sets of batteries a

Hi, can I first ask do you charge a fee for your help. If not, can you help with the following problem? I've recharged the battery for my Canon 40D and placed it back in the camera. The red light flickers and then no power at all. I've done this a couple of times thinking it may be the battery but the last time I tried it then flashed red and a blue light at the same time. This blue light is the printer light next to the Menu button. I don't know how to fix this? Can you help? Thanks.


Try replacing the battery. If the battery has gone bad, charging it will do no good. If it is a new battery, you may have faulty battery terminals in your camera, the memory card switch may be bad, or some other internal failure may have occurred. ... Canon EOS 40D Digital Camera
