Camera fell on floor, now pictures out of focus

\015 Camera fell on floor, now all pictures taken are out of focus\015

Answers :

Hello,
\015\012
\015\012That's because the internal focus servomotors are out of place and can't turn the focus ring. I'm sorry but these components are located inside the lens assembly and this is not by any means an user serviceable part. It's composed of tiny servomotors, small coils and plastic parts that can get out of possition or decalibrated if the lens assembly gets opened.
\015\012
\015\012A thing to try would be to hold the camera with it's lens barrel opened in one hand and hit it (gently yet still firmly) against the other hand. There are some small chances that this will bring the internal focus ring to it's former alligment. Other then this, only a service center can fix the camera, but it could turn out to be an expensive repair.

\015\012I'm sorry for having to bring the bad news.

Nikon d3000 I made the mistake of recently dropping my new D3000 (Was in a padded case, and only fell a small distance) but since the fall my pictures are not at all in focus and are very foggy. Everything else seems fine except for the fact that a small black piece of plastic fell out, though I am not sure if it fell out of the lens or the camera body. My big question - do you think there is a problem with the camera body - or is it the lens? http://www.tiikoni.com/tis/view/?id=aaa702a (Pictu

Lens Error put my mini tripod on to my camera and apparently the legs are not stable enough when I left it on the top of the table. One of the legs gave up and the camera rolled down and fell on the floor, about approx. from 3 ft high. I immediately checked everything looks ok, but when I turned it on to take pictures I'm getting "LENS ERROR" on all settings eg: Auto, Manual, Scene etc.. Is it fixable? If it is...will it cost me an arm & a leg?

Lens broken my camera fell off a table and now the lens is screwed up. when i turn it on it is just a black screen. but if i press firmly on the right side of the lens, the picture blurs, fuzzes, and then comes into focus, once i take my finger off it goes black. so i can take pictures, but only with my finger on the lens. it seems like this is fixable. what can i do?

My d5000 fell on the floor and the filter glass of the lens broke. i tried taking pictures to see if it's still working but the view from the viewfinder is darker than usual and it would not take pics even if i press the shutter release button. should broken filter glass prevent taking pictures or does this mean there is another damage to the camera apart from the broken filter glass?


The filter should have nothing to do with the images recorded on camera (I assume it's an UV- or skylight filter).I'd say there's some more serious damage to your camera and you should take it to an authorized dealer repair shop. ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

Today my 5 yr old dropped our S1050 Samsung camera about 3 feet onto a wooden bridge and now the camera DOES turn on and WILL let me review the pictures I had taken up until that point. However, when attempting to take a picture the picture is out of focus and when I zoom IN it gets clearer but then the camera beeps 2 times and shuts off and closes up. It will let me snap an out of focus picture though. Is there any hope? This camera was expensiveand we've only had it a year. Thanks

Focus The camera has very good focus on the first picture. However, second and following pictures are out of focus. If I turn the camera off and then back on, the focus is fine. Could this be from dropping the camera? Or is it likely just dirty? Thanks.

HI, the camera was hanging on back of a chair with the strap and slip off to the Tile floor. The camera takes pictures but, lines come across the screen as soon as the picture is taken. My wife has down loaded the camera and relayed that all the pictures taken after the drop either have the lines or just didn't take at all. The drop to the floor was probably 18" to 24"

To adjust the focus on the camera you are suppose to press the shutter button halfway down and it will lock your focus in and then press the shutter button again and take the picture. It was working fine and the next time I turned my camera on this option would not work. I try the press the shutter button down halfway the it does nothing. All I can do now it press it all the way to take the picture. I have an Olympus E-420 digital SLR camera.
