Dropped in sand, lens won't come out when turned on...


Answers :

Maybe because there are some sand particles stuck between the lens mechnisim, you will need to open it up to clean it out.

\015\012or the lens may have been pushed too far in, you will need to open it and gently push it back foward only a little,
\015\012
\015\012No i cannot walk you through opening and reassembling since everycamera is different, But
\015\0121.) these contain small parts so be very carfeul
\015\0122.) do not force or pry apart you will break stuff
\015\0123.) remeber where you took the screws out from
\015\0124.) be very gentle when pusing holding clips not to break them
\015\0125.) do not disassemble more than you need to, just taking out the case may or may not give you axcess to the lens
\015\0126.) BE VERY CARFUL
\015\0127.) keep alcohol handy ,, for cleaning and for drinking
Definitely got sand in the lens mechanisms. Are you trying to take this camera apart yourself? You also may be able to get it serviced locally for fairly cheap.
Hope this helps.
Thanks,
