Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?

I think there is sand in my lense ia that covered by my international warranty


Answers :

This is a matter co chance, if factory considers that you caused the problem the guaranty may be void.
In many case they just fix the camera and give it back to you validating the guaranty, even when is is sand of water problem.
First blow the outer part of the lens with canned air to remove sand on the outside of lens barrel. see if this can fix the problem.
If you still have the problem go to an authorized repair shop or call factory using phone number at the end of repair manual, and just tell them that you get lens error from time to time.
Naturally , if you have to tell them that your 3 years old buried the camera under a sand castle this will void the guaranty!
good luck

When turned on lense would only retract partially and then turn off. took it apart. I have it to where the camera will now go on, am able to take a photo (all normal) except I cannot get the lense to "attach" to the camera properly. Cylindrical lense. three screws protruding from it. not sure if the lense mounts on a black ring on the front or under the ring. The "in out" mechanism works but it will not grab the lense (cover?) to move out then retract. Seems to need to attach under the ring but

I have a Minolta f300 camera whith an internal battery that needs to be replaced. Sending it to Minolta (Sony now) would require a flat fee of $181 which is of course morethan the value of he camera.
