Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
Camera is jammed?
\015 I have a Kodak Easyshare DX6490. The last time I used it I tried to turn it off but instead of the lens retracting, as normal, it remained out. Now, when I try to turn it back on, the green camera icon flashes on and off and I can hear a strange noise it does not become functional. Although the lens is 'out' I can't 'see' through it. I've tried taking the battery out and putting it back in but, nothing. Any suggestions would be welcome. Thanks ............ Royston\015
This problem is frequently due to corroded battery terminals inside the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the camera connections with a soft cloth (heavy corrosion may require a fine wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue left from the cleaning, and then replace the batteries. If this doesn't cure the problem, you can check the Kodak troubleshooting guide at:

Jammed lens I dropped my nikon coolpix L18 as I was taking a picture and it fell right on its lens! I guess it jammed, i picked up the camera and the lens looked like it was pushed in crooked. Now when I turn on the camera, it says lens error. What can I do to fix this? Do i need a new camera? =(

Camera jam Ricoh Caplio R5 - tried to switch it on to take a picture, and lens came out part way but the camera then switched off. Flat battery perhaps, so charged battery overnight and tried again with similar results. Lens still part way out, maybe some whirring noises, screen flashes but then camera switches off. Any ideas? Dead battery / broken charger? - or problem with camera? And how to check (I only have the one battery)
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 wer ... Ricoh Caplio R5 Digital Camera
Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Image 'melts' into streaky vertical lines when camera is turned on. This problem started occuring immediately after I found my kids deliberately turning the camera off while jamming the lens cover open, so they could get the 'turn camera off and then on again' error message (yes, I know - they've been banned from touching it again). I confiscated the camera, turned it off and it sat unused for about 3 days. When it was next turned on, the image on the LCD screen was

My Olympus FE-4000 camera lens got jammed when it was dropped on the hardwood floor. The camera turns on, but the lens will not move, it just stays crooked and clicks when it automatically tries to adjust. When I turn the camera on, nothing shows except the "Olympus" on-screen. It won't even allow me to plug it into my computer to retrieve the photos on the memory card
