Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G7 Digital Camera ?

Lens stops nearly dead

\015 Hi there.Thanks so much for your help.My G7 lens seems to get stuck when I turn on. No image on the screen.Power, memory seem fine.Just a short lens, no zoom, no live image on LCD.When I push the power button (from 100% off) once, the lens opens and it extends about .25cm. Then I push power button again an it extends to about 1 cm then I push power again and the little green light comes on next to wheel on top right.I then must push the play button (blue above right to LCD)... this Fully Extends the lens way out then retracts fully and closes the cover on the lens and then the LCD turns on and I can scroll photos .... normal activity...then I push play again and the LCD powers off and were closed and powered off.So, the lens is not stuck as it really does extend 100% and goes in and out no problem but automatically ... zoom control is not working).I recall exactly when all this started...I took a bunch of photos of a new Condo ... powered off and then back on and ug broken..ie no trama, no rain, no drop, no kids, no coke or gum or dirt.I did try taking out the battery, charging the battery, taking out the memory card. HELP PLEASEThanks much JIM [email protected]\015

When you press the power on button the camera lens starts to move out stops goes in then out again stops the screen does not illuminate at all.IF you then press the power button the lens tries to retract slightly but then stops and again nothing else happens. battery is fully charged. if you press the replay button screen and camera behaves as normal and you can view the pictures taken lens usually retracts all the way to its docked position again if it was nearly all the way out.

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?!

Accidentally I dropped my Sony DSC S500 camera. Now the shutter is jammed. When i switch on, the lens ejects out and stops half way. While switching off, the lens doesn't come back to normal position, instead it stops in half way ejected position. From the LED display i could see a blurred image. I am able to see all the photos that i have taken so far, but am not able to take any new photos.

Dead My camera's battery died with the lens open. I have charged the battery and replaced it, but when i put it in, the light flashes green once and never turns on. The diplay never even flickers. So now I have a dead battery with an open lens.

My D80 suddenly stopped taking photos while I was in Auto mode. I noticed the flash stopped releasing. I've changed lenses, reset the camera's green buttons, switched out the card, reset the clock. It will occasionally take a photo, not necessarily in focus,and the flash will on occasion pop, but I can't figure out what the correct triggers are. Can anyone help? Lens is 18-135mm. Set Lens in in "A" and camera is in "AF"mode. Thanks much.
