Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?! Many thanks

When I turn my canon A630 Power shot on, it makes the sound as though it is coming on and the lens does not extend...

Dropped my Olympus FE 3010 and unsurprisingly it's not working.... Everytime I turn the camera on, the lens extends halfway, then stops. The camera beeps at me, the green LED turns orange and the camera becomes unresponsive until I remove the battery (including the Power button). Any ideas on how/if this can be fixed? I think getting professional repairs will cost more than the camera did...


Sounds like a gear has broken or slipped in the lens mechanism.\015\012Depending on the camera, it will probably be cheaper to replace the whole camera. ... Olympus Digital Cameras

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change anything. This is one of four digicams I own (also a Nikon D90, SONY DSC F717, and a Canon) and I like the W150 for some purposes because it is compact and has a viewfinder, not just a screen. I have been unable to find a similar camera. What can I do to fix the problem? Gerry Meisels [email protected]

My Nikon D60 fell and the lens came off. Now the lens no longer holds -- it appears that a piece of plastic has chipped which prevents the lens to click close. Where do you recommend I get it fixed. I bought it at Best Buy -- should I go there, ship to Nikon or find a local store. Is it worth repairing in the first place?


If you are no longer covered by an in-store warranty, whether an extended service or recent sale (typically 30 days) type, going back to Best Buy probably will not help (but asking about it can't hurt). \015\012\015\012Nikon Customer Supp ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm lens

The camera was working fine until I purchased a pack of kodak rechargeable batteries. After a week or so of using them my camera stop coming on when I would press the power button, it would make this beeping noise and the lens wouldn't extend. After continuously pressing the power button I got it to come on but again the lens did not extend and the screen was frozen. Why am I having this problem and how can I fix it?

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open. Waited a few minutes, turned it back on and I get the "access" display message then the beeps and (turn power off and back on) message.

The lens tries to telescope a little bit and retracts a touch, but I can't get the camera out of this mode. Can it be res

Hello typrice, at the second paraghrap you said: "Or the battery ran down with the lens extended." as a possible cause. I'm quite sure this is what happend with my camera (is a FE-340 model) so I tryed all the fixes 1 to 4, because I don't think it is a blocking problem of the lens. The simtom is just as discribed (lens go out and in 3 times, then turn off). I still can't fix the problem, there is any way to restart the software?? I find it should be simple to fix but still have no success... PL
