Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I have a JVC GR-DX27EK camcorder, the automatic lens cover appears to be jammed, is there anything i can do?

Answers :

Hey prezzie
\015\012try bending the cam towards the fornt end of the lens with its protector on. then strongly tap the lens cover going downward. what we want to do is to release the jam by doing this. but dont overdo it! you might damage other internal parts by banging it too much.
Take battery off and put back in after a couple of minutes.

On my Fuji s2000hd I have a zoom error, the screen is black and I can't take pictures. The lens will not zoom out.
