Camera lens has frozen and won't go in - Digital Cameras


Answers :

What type of camera are you using? this happens on my compacts when the batteries are too low to actually retract the lens so the camera just gives up. try replacing with new fully charged batteries. if not, you may have something trapped inside the lens, try cleaning around the edges with a camera brush or use something to blow air inside and then try again

Frozen Camera I have a Panasonic Lumix TZ3 digital camera. The last time it worked, the screen went checkered, so i turned it off. But upon turning it off, the lens of the camera stayed out like it was taking a picture. Now it won't turn on. I've tried recharging the battery, changing memory cards, no memory card, switching settings and turning the on/off switch. Is there anything to be done or I do I just need to get a new camera?

I have an Akai digital camera model DC6371. On start up the lens pops out and screen lights up, but then the screen closes down and (often) the lens remains out even when the camera has been turned off. On trying to operate it again today, the green light indicates the camera is on for a few seconds and the screen lights up momentarily, but the lens doesn't pop out and the camera closes down again.


Looks like you have the notorious lens stuck problem. Since you said it pops out occasionally but does not go in, it is probably a faulty motor or some kind of mechanical obstruction. A qualified camera should be able to fix this for you but I recomm ... Akai DC6371 Digital Camera
