Lens error Hi My Powershot SD4000IS developed a problem after taking it out 4 wheeling.(in a bag, semi protected) a few days later, the lens front cover would not open all the way and I got a black shadow on top and bottom of the picture. Then I took several pictures that are normal and finally the lens will not extend any more and I get a note on the screen that reads : Lens error Will shut down automatically Restart Camera. What could be the problem, could it be dust??

I have two olympus 1010 camera's. Both have been dropped. The lens is patially open and the cover not fully closed. One will turn on so you can see through the LCD but only the top third of the field is visible. When photos are taken that is what shows up. Also it tries to focus but can't get it clear. The second powers up with information on the LCD but instead of seeing through the camera you see black. Phots can be taken but they too are black. What is wrong and what can be done to fix them?

Screen blackness I have the same problem. The lens is NOT stuck - it does deploy and the lens cover opens. I have replaced the batteries, tried a differant memory stick, and I turn it on and off to reboot. None of these solutions work. The camera is only a year or so old - it doesn't get a lot of use so it is not mishandled. Does anybody have any suggestions?

When I turn the camera on, the lens cover opens and then closes. When I turn the camera off, the lens cover closes and then opens. So, how can I get the timing of the lens cover correct? Or can you tell me how I can keep the lens cover open all the time? (not the best solution but now I can't take a photo at all!)

My Olympus Fe-230 camera's lens won't open. I turn the camera on and it makes the sound of the lens opening, and the lens begin to "push out" but then retract. This happens a few times and then the camera stops "trying" to open. The actual lens is never exposed [as in the black 'cover' never opens]. How do I fix it?

Lens stuck My camera won't register to open the lens. I don't know how it was before, but the screen is completely black and it won't take pictures. If I open the lens manually, the screen shows the image, but obviously I cannot take a picture with my thumb across half the lens. Is this fixable, or should I get a new camera?

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. While off, I have removed the battery, replacing it with a fully charged spare and it still does this. 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

My Panasonic DMC-TZ3 lens cover gets stuck and won't open completely. It has been getting worse. If I CAREFULLY assist it, it will fully open. I don't remember any trauma, such as dropping the camera. I've had it almost a year and a half and the problem started about 6 months ago. I am going on a big trip in a week and need a reliable camera. Thanks! Bradley
