Hi,when i went on holliday the lens got stuck half way.I was unable to retract the lens shut, when i switched it off.When I got home the repair was to much,so I decided to open my hitachi hdc-831e camera up and found a small cog that allows the lens to open,had a tooth broken, which preventedthe lens from retracting.Can you tell me where i can buy this little part.ps I can send photo of part to you.thanks Kevin

Kodak DC290 zoom. When you turn it on, the lens is supposed to extend. It doesn't. flipping the wide and tele switch makes it jump, but it still won't extend. After playing with it like this, it shuts down. Turn it on, play with the switch, shuts down. repeat this four or five times, and it finally extends and is usable. Got a fix for this?

Lens error my canon IXUS 860 IS is having a lens error problem. firstly, the lens cant retract back and when i try to switch it on, the screen will say 'lens error, restart camera' so how do i restart the camera?? i'm currently overseas and although my camera is within warranty, i cant possibly send my camera back to the original country for repair. is there any DIY method?? i'm an amateur at cameras so i do not wish to try any method that may further make the problem worse. thank you for your h

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??

Wide problem The moment the 3200 is switched on the wide angle indicator shows and the lens goes into wide and then tele. After this you cant click. Occassionally, on switching up the wide does not happen and shots can be taken and wide switch works. Switch it off and on again and the same problem happens. As long as the camera is on and the wide does not come up everything is fine.

I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself. Sometimes the lens will come out and then the camera powers down with the lens stuck out. Other times it just shuts off before the lens even has a chance to come out. The camera has never been dropped or damaged.
First press power button for 15 seconds .Then remove memory card from it may be your memory card has some issue.also press reeset button on camera some camera has reset button.start your camera without memory card. ... Digital Cameras
I have a D5000 camera w/ kit lens VR 55-200, less than a year old. Recently and only occasionally what is happening is when I press the shutter release button, the lens won't focus, it won't move in or out and it makes a odd noise, not the usual lens motor noise, but an odd squeaking noise, like it's trying to move but is stuck. The only way to correct it is to either shut the camera off and turn it back on again, or switch to manual focus, then back to auto. The battery is full, so it's not

Onle 1 was showing. I tried turning it on, and all it says now is, "Lens error, please restart camera." I tried the Hold Menu down for 5 seconds, but that did nothing since it doesn't even turn on.
