Camera fell off TV tray; lens bent and won't retract
\015 The electronics on the camera are still working to perfection. Problem is as soon as it's turned on it turns itself off, because the lens (outside lens) is at an angle and won't retract. This was the result of an accident and the camera fell to hardwood floor from a tv tray; I don't think it's bent, actually, just hit at an angle so the outer lens is crooked inside the inner lens.\015\012\015\012Note: I already got a newer model, but am wondering if this can be repaired for less than the price of a new camera.\015
I had the same problem. just force the lens back into place. I did that and it worked perfectly!
