Hi,\015\012Unfortunately it sounds like the camera is beyond repair. When a camera's dropped like that there's a 50/50 chance that a mechanism in the lens has been broken and it's repairable. From the sounds of yours though, the fact that it won't co ... Kodak EASYSHARE M1063 Digital Camera

You've likely jammed the zoom motor in the lens. You're correct in thinking that the camera can't work without the lens out. With it being physical damage repairs wouldn't be covered under warranty so you either need to pay to have it repaired (if th ... Digital Cameras

Dropped camera Camera dropped while lens was out. Lens was knocked crooked. My son attempted to push the lens back to center it and we heard a piece on the right side click or break. Now the lens wobbles, but retracts. However, the lens comes out halfway between wide and telephoto, have to move it back and forth, or shut off and sometimes it comes out to wide. Pictures are still great. Ask Kodak for help and they wanted me to send it to them and then give me a certificate to take 15% off a new c

Toshiba PDR-M700 When I power up the camera, the lens will not come out and sometimes will come out all the way to maximum zoom. When I power off with the lens out, it clicks as if something is stripped or loose. After shut down, I can push the lens back in. Once in a while the camera will work but eventually the "Lens Error" message comes up. This was a good expensive camera when I bought it but taking it in for service would probably cost more than the price of a new camera today. Can you sugg

Used Vivitar 70-200 zoom on my K200 Pentax. Nothing but aggravation since. Right now the 18-55 lens it came with is on but shutter button is stuck in down position and my flash wont pop up using the manual "up" button. When I look thru lens and push button, flashing "F" is the only thing there. Removed lens and button would move enough to "click" but would not come up. Put lens back on and nothing!

Hi Meaghan,\015\012\015\012If it was me (and this did happen to my camera as well) I would take it to a camera shop. For about $50.00 they can put the lens back on track, and clean it as well.

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open. The screen is black and the light flashes red everytime I turn on the camera, along with a noise of something stuck. I have tried using that little button that someone told me was the reset button, along with plugging it in, and charging it. None of this has helped me with fixing

My camera doesn't turn on at all. I took it out of its cover today and I first thought it was a battery problem so I recharge my battery but it still doesn't turn on at all. I tried to connect it to my computer, hoping that it will do something but still nothing.

Lens Error! We have a Nikon Coolpix S6. When attempting to turn on, the camera buzzes. Afterward, the screen shows what the lens is pointing at, but then it goes white and the words, "Lens Error" appears. I can't find the manual to pinpoint the problem.

Lens error. lens comes out than back in turns off than on and goes back in and out than says lens error. this camera is only about 8 months old. i have a feeling if it were to get repaired some else will go wrong. doesn't seem like a reliable product very disappointed in nikon and most likely never will buy their products again.

The lens will not come out fully, it clicks some and then beeps. it happened at random, it was not dropped or mistreated. The lens will come out some, but it generally needs to be pushed back in. The camera itself won't even let me view the pictures on it, or anything. It just reads ''Lens error''.

A classic one... so it seems, but I could not find an answer here or elsewhere. My Lumix DMC-FP1 normally can be turned on by either opening the lens cover or by pushing the 'ON' button.
