With a camera of his age replacing it with a second hand one would most likely be the cheapest option.

\015\012If your handy (but please note the flash circuitry has possibly lethal voltages - 300+volts) you could buy a faulty one maybe one with a broken screen and use yours to fix it, but changing the lens wont be for the faint of heart... It will mean a total strip down to remove it and really you will need to swap the sensor over else there may be problems with the calibration of colour and contrast.

I have the same problem with my Lumix DMC-TZ3 lens error states "Turn off camera and then turn back on" Though my lens tries to adjust then stops. The power stays on with the error message.

I have a Canon PowerShot A2000IS. The zoom lever is no longer function to the right. As in, the zoom lens still works but the zoom lever will not control it, I have confirmed this by attempting to use the zoom lever in the playback mode.

Sony DSC-S500 My camera is 10 months old. It's been working perfectly up until today. When I turn it on the lens closes. When I turn it off the lens opens. When I can get the lens to open half way as soon as I push the zoom button it closes. It's kind of like the lens is stuck. I've tried replacing batteries, I wasn't sure what else to do.

Hi, I have a Samsung PL100. When I turn it on the lens extends and then buzzes for about two seconds, the camera will then not focus (though it will zoom in and out). I have to admit that I have had the zoom unit apart to look for anything obvious, so it may need replacing. Is there any procedure I can use to seat the lenses in the correct position before switching on or can you advise on anywhere that sells these zoom units, as I cannot find any suppliers? Many thanks Steve O.

My Olympus u 750's telescopic zoom is jammed in the extended position. The cause seems to be the last segment of the zoom, containing the lens, which is not properly aligned with the other retractable zoom segments. I don't remember knocking the camera - not sure how this happened. Is this a common problem that can be fixed by gently forcing the crooked segment back into it proper place? Or if it has to be sent for repair, is it worth the trouble and cost?

Lens spring/s A couple of weeks ago I got the dreaded lens error. In my case it was probably due to sand. I took the camera apart and when I came to disassembling the lens - the spring popped and fell on the floor - as I picked it up it caught in the carpet and I ruined it. So my question is where do I get a replacement without sending the whole camera back to Canon? Also is there 2 springs, as there seems to be hooks for 2?

Lens repair I dropped the camera on a muddy field. After drying it has recovered, but there is a remaining spot on the pic's.The spot is more distinct at tele zoom setting, and hardly visible at wide mode.
