Hello

Thank you for using FIXYA!!!

This\012 is a suggestion. If you do not feel comfortable trying it, you will need to take \012the unit to your nearest service centre. Feel free to let me know if you\012 need any assistance.

The problem might be that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the \012probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use\012\012\012\012\012\012\012 these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly ,\012 try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the \012shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , \012and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then \012try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently \012pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may \012cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another\012 way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and \012then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to\012 not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and \012down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the \012camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your \012camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of \012your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to \012replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest\012 you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any \012off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about\012 warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope\012 \012the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need \012any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you \012found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

When I recently turned on my camera (D-630 Zoom) to take a picture, I got the message titled Card Setup, with two options "Power off" and "Format". I turned the camera off, took out the memory card (1GB) and put it back in, as I did the last (and only) time this happened, about two years ago. But it has not worked, and I have been getting this message with the two options for a few days. Any ideas? Thank you.


If this exact card has worked in the camera before, chances are it has gone bad. Typically, if the camera says to format the card it is because it does not recognize the card. The only reason this would happen is if the card is unreadable from malfun ... Olympus D-630 Zoom Digital Camera

Negative effect. I've had my Canon Powershot S3 1S for over a year now. The other day I was taking pictures and it was working fine. I turn it off and set it down. I come back later, turn it on again and the screen shows has white lines that keep flicking over it. I turn it off and take the batteries out. Later I put the batteries back in, turn it on, and find that it is in negative effect. I'm pretty sure that my camera can't do this naturally and I've tried everything to see if I could get it
