\015 Hi.I have recently noticed that the lens has become kinds loose where it joins the body. It feels losse in it's socket.seems to take pics fine but it can't be right:o)Anyone seen this before?Thanks ppl :o)Isn't the internet amazing?? :o)\015

Answers :

If it is at all like my C8080, there are 4 screws that hold the lens guard in place, accesible only when the case is opened. This is the fixed tube that the lens extends out of. The knurled coller is a screw on piece that allows a lens tube to be screwed on, that can be tightened by hand. If the lens itself seems kinda wobbly, that is normal and is just showing a little sign of age. It wont affect the picture. The lens rides on helical rails on a rotating inner barrel and these rails and bushings get a little worn over time.

Lens assembly The lens assembly has become loose. One of the outer rings has actually detatched from the camera body.When switching on - either the message 'lens fault' is displayed or a very blurred image is displayed in the LCD. The camera shop reckons the problem is quite common and estimates $A200 to fix ie replace lens assembly. Any similar experiences? (Of course, the camera is 3 months out of warranty).

Loose lens? The camera works well and takes good pictures. However, the lens has developed considerable movement across its axis, and the sideways movement can be felt when moving the camera body from side to side. Is this looseness an indication of likely failure in the future, and should I do something about it at this stage? Any opinions would be appreciated.

Toshiba PDR-M700 When I power up the camera, the lens will not come out and sometimes will come out all the way to maximum zoom. When I power off with the lens out, it clicks as if something is stripped or loose. After shut down, I can push the lens back in. Once in a while the camera will work but eventually the "Lens Error" message comes up. This was a good expensive camera when I bought it but taking it in for service would probably cost more than the price of a new camera today. Can you sugg

I have a Kodak EasyShare Z1485 IS, the lens barrel is stuck in the furthest extended position. It was left alone and not operated for several months, though I have replaced the battery. The camera turns on for about 3 seconds at a time, I tried to turn it on several times with the lens barrel inching forward each time. It stopped going forward and has become stuck in what appears to be the furthest-extended position.There does not appear to be any particulates obstructing the lens barrel as far

Hi i just bought a canon eos rebel from someone online and it has a 28-80 lens. I try to use it and i noticed the focus is very loose, is that normal? I dont know alot about cameras but i have used manual cameras before and i have never used one with such a loose focus. And also would i lose slight focus if its like that when i go and take a picture?

Your camera is primarily an autofocus model: manual focussing is very much a secondary feature and is always very free moving. If it were any other way then it would cause the AF motor to work much harder and dramatically shorten the battery life. ... Canon EOS Rebel 2000 with 28-80 lens 35mm Film Camera

Pentax Optio M 30 After turn-on, the lens comes out, it goes immediately to maximum zoom and then the image becomes blurry. After that, it retracts the lens and turns off. It does the same thing every time.

Your problem is that the camera is failing the seft test. Since the image gets blurry at the end of the lens check, my money would be on the lens itself. It is possible that the lens gears that help extend and retrace the lens are clogged by some mec ... Pentax Optio M30 Digital Camera

What happened is this: the zoom lever has become loose. I hadn't applied any excessive pressure to it or force to it in any way, but while using it to navigate through the photo browser (which is one of its functions) it suddenly made a slight ?click? sound and felt very loose (as if a spring or a coil inside it broke). Subsequently the camera only zooms in/out to its maximum capacity, while normally it should pause between the zooms. g7 canon
