Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

My Stylus-7010 has just decided not to open up when turned on. The battery is fully charged, and the playback pictures function lites up and works fine. The lens makes a noise but does not extend nor open. Should I return it to the store for a replacement? I have only had it for 41 days. Registration #8855


Answers :

Base from the description of your problem this is a clear mechanical problem inside your camera and in order for it to be fix the camera needs to be dismantle and doing that will definitely void your warranty for the unit, so I strongly suggest that you just have this camera replace since its still almost new and still under warranty take advantage of that.

After turning on, the lens opens and extends, then it makes a noise like thereis something mechanically sticking. After it stops making noise, there is an e18 on the LCD.


The e18 error is a lens error and it comes out if the lens is stuck. It happens for several reason, but it all boils down on how you store your camera. Sometimes, you might have sand in the lens. \015\012\015\012I had the same problem bef ... Canon PowerShot A95 Digital Camera

The power turns on but the shutter door will not open or extend, it prompts to turn off the power and turn power back on. I am able to see the photos thru the home button already taken that are stored on the card and do the other functions, but am unable to shoot new pictures because the shutter door remains closed. You can hear it trying to open but it will not.


Usually when you see this either the shutter cover motor has a problem or the cover is jammed. You can try gently helping the cover open but don't force it. You haven't mentioned the camera model so I can only give you some generic advice ... Digital Cameras

Fuji a345 I have a 2 year old Fuji a345 which periodically has a problem with the lens cover not opening and, of course, the lens not extending into position when the camera is powered on. Generally turning the camera off and on a few times will eventually result in the lens cover opening and allowing the lens to extend into proper position for shooting pictures. Any ideas.

My problem began with the lense cover not fully opening up. When I gently manually opened it all has been fine.

Strange noises I bought it last week and its makes strage "clicky" noises when on. I've exchanged it twice and all 3 have made the same noises. Is this normal? They don't sound like normal camera noises and the store where I bought it listened and agreed that each camera seems to be not working properly. The clicks keeps happening even after I've turned all the noise settings to silent. It the Kodak EasyShare M341 Orchid 12.2MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom. Thank you so much!

My Pentax Optio S10 digital camera is giving me problems. Initially the lens would not extend fully and would then immediately retract and the camera would then turn itself off.

At the time the screen shows the green Optio screen for a split second and then shows an out of focus shot of whatever the camera is pointing at, bef

Have a lumix DMC-FC20 and began to hear a noise as if there was a loose part... I am familiar with the stability mechanism and was aware camera movement can result in a noise that sounds similar to a loose part but the noise continued even if the camera was powered-off. My curiosity got the best of me and I removed the screws on the casing and opened the back to confirm that there was a loose screw approximately 1/4" long. I have no idea where the screw came from since I could not easily remove
