Having problems with your Hitachi Digital Cameras ?

My camera will come on but the lense want come on and then it goes off sfter a few secounds

Answers :

Without knowing the specific model, I'm going to suggest a few things here...There is a possibility that the lens has dirt in the mechanism causing a jammed condition--have you been to the beach with it recently?Any type of impact--front or side, can jam the precision movement. Most likely, the lens is jammed and when the camera senses this(using tiny contacts internally), it automatically shuts down to prevent damage. Send the camera to the *manufacturer* service facility--not a store. The reason being the store will usually add half the repair cost to the quote *you* see--NOT the actual quote from the repair facility.---Hope I helped you!---Rick

p.s. Is the camera under warranty? Impact or dirt is *not* covered

Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?

Focus Problem I recently took the camera apart to fix the zoom. lens would not come out. Fixed it all good now goes in and out smothly. Now the pics are fuzzy out of focus. has auto focus 2' too infinity. Wiped the lenses off while i was in there with a lens cloth from binoculars. Maybe not well enough and it might have a film on it. Would that make the pics fuzzy or out of focus? Or is there something else?

A small amount of dirt on the lens would just produce some flare and redule overall contrast slightly. It wouldn't produce a grossly out of focus image. Either you misaligned something or you messed up the autofocus system somehow.\015\012\015\012Can ... Fuji FinePix 2650 Digital Camera
