Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I got fine glass pieces inside my Sony SEL18200 zoom lens for my NEX-5. Can I remove the front glass and clean it out? It got in there when my camera fell and the lens cap jammed into the uv filter on the outside of the lens and shattered it.

I just received my Nikon D3100 in the mail today, and I was so excited. When I opened the lens cap on the camera body to put the lens on a small, clear-ish rectangle fell out. It was surrounded by a thin cooper colored frame that is easily removable. It looked like a little magnifying glass so I am kind of nervous. It seems to shoot pictures fine, but some times it tells me the shot is to dark even though I am in full light. It also took black pictures the first few times and if I point it di

Jammed lens I dropped my nikon coolpix L18 as I was taking a picture and it fell right on its lens! I guess it jammed, i picked up the camera and the lens looked like it was pushed in crooked. Now when I turn on the camera, it says lens error. What can I do to fix this? Do i need a new camera? =(


Hey latyrant,\015\012 If the lens visibly looks crooked then the lens is probably broken and needs to be repaired by an authorized service technician. One thing you could try is placing the camera on a flat surface w ... Digital Cameras

Lens probably does not extend or retract because of debris or a misaligned gear box. The\012lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to\012return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are\012t ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LX3 Digital Camera

I had my camer in a bag in the bag I had a bottle (qt) of pepsi.The cap came off the camera got soaked with soda. Needless to say a lot of syrup in the camera. When I got the camera out of the bag the lens were opened- battery dead-new battery didn't work. Can this camera be repaired since it probably got shorted.


Hi,To begin with, this is an internal fault as you might have observed. Repair would not make any real sense as the cost of repair in this case would be more than $100 which is not worth the cost of the product. In case, if you have elect ... Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera

Lens Error I fell while holding my camera. The lens was open at the time and when I got up I turned the camera off. I then turned it back on to check it and the lens opened and immediately closed with the "lens error" on the screen. I can turn it off and on and the lens will always open but closes as soon as it has opened with the lens error on the screen. The shutter opens but closes also, like the lens. Can this be fixed? It was a gift so I don't have the bill of sale but I still have the orig

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?


I had teh same question, I'm trying to repair mine atteh moment and there is only one spring.\015\012\015\012still trying to get teh lens back together propoerly, managed to rip a cable track so have to get another anyway... spewing.. ... Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

My Olympus FE-4000 camera lens got jammed when it was dropped on the hardwood floor. The camera turns on, but the lens will not move, it just stays crooked and clicks when it automatically tries to adjust. When I turn the camera on, nothing shows except the "Olympus" on-screen. It won't even allow me to plug it into my computer to retrieve the photos on the memory card

Lens Error. Hi. I dropped my camera on the 30th of December last year, while taking pictures of Christmas lights. This happened, when I was being stupid, because I didn't put my wrist ********. It slipped right out of my hands and fell lens down on the concrete while it was on. I picked it up and it said: lens error. When I turn it in, the lens will go out as normal, but the message will appear and it will turn off. The shutter only closes halfway. I think it is jammed. Is there anyway to fix th

My d5000 fell on the floor and the filter glass of the lens broke. i tried taking pictures to see if it's still working but the view from the viewfinder is darker than usual and it would not take pics even if i press the shutter release button. should broken filter glass prevent taking pictures or does this mean there is another damage to the camera apart from the broken filter glass?


The filter should have nothing to do with the images recorded on camera (I assume it's an UV- or skylight filter).I'd say there's some more serious damage to your camera and you should take it to an authorized dealer repair shop. ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

I have a nikkor 18-200 lens. the outermost ring screws into the lens glass ring with a few very tiny screws. the screws loosened and the cap fell off. nothing is broken (though auto focus no longer works with this off) but there is a solid plastic ring that covers the screw heads and i cannot see a way to access the screw heads to screw them back into the lens. it would be a simple procedure if i could access them. any ideas?

I have a Sony DSC-W370 and the outermost glass lens has been scratched (by a piece of sand, I think). It's ruining every shot I take, really, but everything else on the camera works fine. I can't seem to find a replacement part and I wouldn't know how to fix it even if I had a spare. How would I take it apart, for example? What I'm wondering is whether it would be possible to have this outside piece of glass polished and if I do would it ruin the image? I was thinking of taking it to an e


You cannot replace the lens assembly. This must be done by a Sony repair service center. You cannot "polish" the lens without completely ruining it. Replacement is going to be expensive. Get an estimate and then decide if it's worth it. ... Sony Cybershot DSCW370 Digital Camera

After carefully removing pieces of the uv filter & taking pictures dark patches appear top corners of pictures taken. What could have gone wrong & how serious does the problem look?


Hi, allow me to suggest using another lens to see if you still see the dark patches in the top corners. If not it is the lens, if so it is the camera. Either way it sounds as though something is maladjusted. Call Nikon digital 1-800-645-6689. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens
