I mistakenly dropped my digital camera a few inches when the lens was out.When i tried putting it off to know if the lens would go back in,it didnt move so i forcefully pushed it back inside.Now, when i try putting it on ,the green light flashes,then goes off and the lens attempts to come out but its like its stuck or something pulls it back inside.from what i noticed the camera cant come on without the lens coming out.pls i really dnt know what to do


You've likely jammed the zoom motor in the lens. You're correct in thinking that the camera can't work without the lens out. With it being physical damage repairs wouldn't be covered under warranty so you either need to pay to have it repaired (if th ... Digital Cameras

Lens error my canon IXUS 860 IS is having a lens error problem. firstly, the lens cant retract back and when i try to switch it on, the screen will say 'lens error, restart camera' so how do i restart the camera?? i'm currently overseas and although my camera is within warranty, i cant possibly send my camera back to the original country for repair. is there any DIY method?? i'm an amateur at cameras so i do not wish to try any method that may further make the problem worse. thank you for your h

Hi,\015\012Unfortunately it sounds like the camera is beyond repair. When a camera's dropped like that there's a 50/50 chance that a mechanism in the lens has been broken and it's repairable. From the sounds of yours though, the fact that it won't co ... Kodak EASYSHARE M1063 Digital Camera

I'd like to set my Stylus 790SW back to default settings in hopes that my video feature will work. Right now the video doesn't record. It's just a picture. I've been messing with this camera for 4 hours and cant get this thing back to original settings. Is there a magic trick? If I send this to Olympus to be looked at, it will be it's 3rd trip since to the New York repair shope since I bought it 2 years ago.

Dropped Camera I leant my camera to someone and now it won't turn on. The front of the camera is slightly separated from the back and top (the part with buttons on top). Any suggestions? I'm tempted to open it with a small screwdriver and manually put the camera back together but I'm afraid that it's probably not a very good idea. I can't bring the camera in for repair because I'm in Rwanda and can't necessarily find a canon expert here. Any help is appreciated!

My camera doesn't turn on at all. I took it out of its cover today and I first thought it was a battery problem so I recharge my battery but it still doesn't turn on at all. I tried to connect it to my computer, hoping that it will do something but still nothing. Strangely enough, the lens is on and I don't want to use force to put it back inside, afraid that it might damage the camera even more.Should I send it for repair? and if yes, where is the best place to do it? thanks in advance
