Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

When you turn it on the lens goes out and right back in and turns off

Answers :

Hi Dear,

This issue is because of discharged battery. The when there is not enough power supply for the camera to support it for longer time. The reserve power supply switches on your camera for a moment resulting in roll out of the camera lens. But as the camera detects that there is not enough battery available, it agains rolls in the camera lens in and then shuts down.

Hope this is one of the reasons. Please charge the battery to the fullest and then try to use it on the camera.

If the problem persist then do write to us again. We will be glad to take your problem once again.

Have a nice day.
