"The lens does not retract when turning off" Apply gentle but firm, even inward pressure to the lens assembly while turning off. Do this several times, applying pressure only while turning off. Once the lens assembly moves a little turn the camera on and then off without additional pressure. If the lens does not begin to move freely repeat this procedure. Be extremely careful ever after not to restrict the lens while turning the camera on or off.

I have a Nikon S6 digital camera, everything about the camera seems to work fine, except for this "lens error" message I keep getting. Sometimes I'll turn it on, and I can use it just fine. But then there are other times where I have to turn it off and on in order to get it to work. And then there are those times where turning it off and on don't help. I usually give up and try again later. Sometimes it'll still give that error message, and other times, it will just work like normal. What can

Pretty much constant but sometimes intermittant problem of the camera fe-210 screen goes black. all functions appear to be normal but it does not see through the lens. So everything is black on the pictures taken. It's like the opening is shut. Sometimes it will work when first turned on for one or maybe two exposures. then it goes black and may stay that way even if turned on and off or changing any of the settings.

My Sony DSC-W30 has a problem. When turned on the screen picture rarely can be seen. It is either completely dark and a picture taken will also turn out dark and unseen. Sometimes the screen will turn on and off many times and then turn dark. Sometimes I can smack it on my hand and it will go black or come back on. The anti-shake button sometimes allows it to come back on. I do not have any screen messages and all the other features seem to work but in a dark unusable screen.


Sounds like a loose LCD connector. It does not sound like a image sensory problem to me. You will have to disassemble it , remove the connector cable then replug it back into the panel and that should do the trick. However I suggest that you take th ... Digital Cameras

My D40 does not shut off properly, and sometimes turns on by itself. It seems to be getting worse, and sometimes I can only get it to turn off by putting the on/off switch in between the two settings. Also, sometimes if the camera gets left on I have trouble taking pictures the next time I go to use it (even if the battery is still charged).


Obviously something is wrong with the on-off switch. I would have it serviced. ... Nikon D40 Digital Camera with G-II 18-55mm Lens
