Having problems with your Kodak EasyShare Z915 Digital Camera ?

I dropped my kodak z915 camera while taking a picture. Now the lens is stuck and it will turn on and turn off quickly. how do I fix it?


Answers :

It appears you've knocked the camera lens barrel out of it's guides. On the outer rim of the lens barrel are small channels which match with metal pins sticking out of the barrel guide (the part of the camera where the lens slides into on switch off) I've seen people tell others on the Net to bash the camera with lens down on a hard surface. PLEASE, PLEASE don't do that. It may work once in a thousand tries but it will more than likely make the problem worse and even snap the metal pins off or scar the barrel for good.

\015\012I'm afraid it sounds like a definite trip to the repair shop. Its certainlý not something you should attempt yourself unless you feel confident you can handle extremely complicated and extremely fiddly work. I purchased probably 20 broken cameras to work on before even attempting opening a customers camera and of course they are all different. Your camera requirers a complete pulldown as the lens is the last item to be extracted. I pulled apart over 50 lenses and then got them reassembled before daring to do the same to a customers and fell confident about it. So your camera deserves a good tech who knows his stuff. I always worked under the rule "if it's not fixed you don't pay" but I doubt if there's too many around anymore. Maybe that's why I'm not dring a Ferrari.

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC-W30 camera. This morning, I took a picture of my daughter, and turned the camera off. Right when I was turning it off, she asked me if she could see the picture, so I quickly turned it back on again, and now it is stuck. The lens is stuck out and the power off, and it won't do anything. I have tried taking the battery out, and putting it back in, nothing. Anyone have any ideas??

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open.

Stuck Lens I fell on my camera just recently and the lens is stuck open half way. When you power it on it moves a bit to the side and up, then to the other side and up and then beeps couple of times.
