Ok so i am turning on my camera (an Fe-340) and the lens go in two or three times then when the screen finally does come on it is blurry and way out of focus, also when i attempt to adjust the zoom the camera turns itself off, if i attempt to turn the camera off using the power button it goes off but the lens does not retract.All other functions on the camera are operating correctly to my knowledge i can even take a blurry out of focus picture, view it in display mode or even transfer it to my c

I dropped my Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 and now the lens won't come out. It turns on and all but it just tells me to turn it off and on again, and it won't let me look at the menu. the circles in the lens are closed and it's pitch black looking at the screen and I tried pressing the shutter button once I turn it on and it just says to turn it off and on again. Also 2 times this occurred, when I could see with it but everything was still blurry and the lens opened up a little but just those 2 times.

Olympus FE-230 - When I turn on the camera, the lens comes out goes back in them comes out again. Then I have a blurry image on the screen. I can hear the gears turning to extend the lens. This camera is about a year old and as far as I know has not been dropped.


Hey fl_dolphin,\015\012 This is most likely caused by something obstructing the movement of the lens. You could try blowing compressed air in to the side of the lens to try and dislodge whatever is stuck in the lens. ... Digital Cameras

My sony camera keeps making a strange noise at the lens everytime I go to turn it on and it stalls at the cyber shot opening. Then, once it decides to turn itself on after the lens goes back and forth, it comes up in a blurry backround telling me I have to turn it off and then on again but it keeps doing this in repeat

Blurry pics One day out of nowhere I turn on our camera to take a pic and the display is a redish blurry mess, I couldn't even make out any shapes. I went thru the menu's thinking maybe a setting was changed but nothing was. I took a pic thinking maybe it was just the display screen but no. Is it the lens? Has anyone else had this problem?

You are basically right. Its basically as easy to replace as it costs to repair, unfortunately those are your options. You could inquire as to an estimate to make your decision easier, or locate an independent repair shop as they may be cheaper. The ... Nikon Coolpix S210 Digital 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

I bought my camera Christmas Eve, and a new memory card Christmas Day. Yesterday, I tried turning the camera on and the lens opened and shut automatically and said Lens Error with a Large Red Exclamation point. I've come to the conclusion that it was because I hadn't formatted the new memory card with the camera and I'd already taken a few pictures with it. But now, when I turn the camera on, it no longer says that and only has a blurry image and does not take photos. I do not know how to fix th

The auto setting stopped working - I usually always had it set on Auto, then "Auto" became video (same setting as video setting) for some reason. Now, it won't take pics on certain settings and only lets me take pics on a fast setting, so pics always come out blurry. Sometimes won't let me view or forward through pics. I've charged battery. Do you think I need to replace the battery?

My Canon Powereshot 200SX IS does not start properly. Display comes on but the lens stays closed inside and a led blinks. After a while display turns black, a beep comes on and the white text says: there is an error, try to start again. Starting it again brings exactly the same situation. Loosing the battery does not help either. Camera seems not to react to any control buttons. There has not been any any obvious reason for this, no falling onto the ground or any other impact.
