Does anyone have instructions for getting at the lens mechanism? I totally understand the risks of doing this myself, but the cost of getting a shop to do this is nearly as much as a new camera! I am sure the problem is caused by sand. The lens at first just went in and out a few time, before the camera turned off. I vacuumed it, then slapped it against the side of my hand whilst turning it on - now it turns on properly with the lens out, but it wont focus - so you can only take blurry photo

I have a Nikon D40X camera with two lenses - one is 18-55 and the other is 55-200. Unfortunately, when I was at a wedding rehearsal, my 55-200 lens dropped off the pew on to the ground. It was not on the camera at the time and it has not worked properly ever since. My camera works properly with the 18-55 lens. Is there anything that can be done to fix it? Essentially, the camera can still focus, in and out, but when I try and push the button down, to take a picture, it just continues to refocus

I have a Samsung L201. I dropped my camera today (lens down) on sand, and now the lens won't go back it. Every time i turn it on it sounds a distinct 4x buzz sound, followed by a pause and then 3 beep sounds, followed by another 4x buzz sounds. There is no sand noticeable anywhere in the mechanism and was picked up as soon as it was dropped. Can I do anything to reset it myself? Please help. Thank you :)

Hi, my Kodak easyshare MD41 will turn on but when i do it retracts the lens right away. i took it to the beach, so im guessing sand or the sand dust got in it.

I have a D90 and I just got, used, a 50 mm f/1.4 D lens. The lens motor sounds like it is working, but only moves the lens a small amount. Not enough to properly auto focus. It will manually focus, but the movement is not as free as another 50 mm lens I compared it to. Yes, I could bring it back, but if there is a simple fix, I'd like to do that.


Unless you have a lens collimator and other equipment, do not try to take the lens apart yourself. Take the lens in to a reputable camera shop and have their repair department do a CLA (clean-lube-adjust) on the lens. ... Nikon D80 Digital Camera with 18-135mm Lens

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?

"lens error" when i turn the camera on to shoot photos, the display says "lens error".   It sounds as if the lens mechanism is trying to open, but it doesn't move.   Lights keep flashing.  I am able to view pictures I have already taken, but not able to take pictures. I have tried recharging the batteries and replacing them, but it did not fix the camera.

Suspect the LS443 kodak "on" button was activated while in my pocket, causing the lens deployment that probably misaligned the lens and caused the current problem. The lens no longer deploys correctly. It will deploy with mechanical help, but functions improperly in some cases. Still takes pictures with coaxing. Any fixes that don't involve taking it apart?

Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced. If you feel like you can do it yourself, go for it. Otherwise, have a trained professional do it. ... Nikon Digital Cameras

Blurry pictures I have had this camera for a couple years and have taken thousands of pictures with it. I have been very happy until recently most of the pictures are blurry and look like the camera is not focusing properly. I am wondering if it is possible (if not common) for grit to get in the lens mechanism restricting the lens from moving to the fully extended position. I am considering a professional cleaning but don't know the cost/benefit when weighed against just buying a new camera.
