Dropped Camera. Basically, the thing stopped working. DMC-FZ1 It was dropped from a tripod it landed Lens DOWN. So it kind of smashed into it maybe? But nothing on the outside seems to be actually broken. The lens is crooked, but thats all that seems to be wrong. Yet it won't turn on at all. Maybe if someone could suggest something? Perhaps maybe something needs to be fidgeted around inside? Or is it a better idea if I pay a professional? But whatever the case. Anyone who has any suggestions it

Dropped my Olympus FE 3010 and unsurprisingly it's not working.... Everytime I turn the camera on, the lens extends halfway, then stops. The camera beeps at me, the green LED turns orange and the camera becomes unresponsive until I remove the battery (including the Power button). Any ideas on how/if this can be fixed? I think getting professional repairs will cost more than the camera did...
Sounds like a gear has broken or slipped in the lens mechanism.\015\012Depending on the camera, it will probably be cheaper to replace the whole camera. ... Olympus Digital Cameras
Similar to another post, I dropped my Canon Rebel XS (strap caught a chair) and it landed on my tile floor. Everything seems to work fine except the auto focus. Because I thought it landed lens first I bought another 18-55mm lens. However when I put the new lens on the auto focus on does not work on this one either. Any ideas whats on what is going on?
The unit uses tiny electromagnets mounted on a circular free turning focus ring, and there could be some damage to that. Also, there are many tiny parts inside the lens assembly that could have been cracked or damaged from the fall.\015\012T ... Canon EOS Rebel XSi Digital Camera
My Nikon d40x is roughly three years old and the lens has had to have been repaired twice due to it being dropped. Lens is working fine though now. Yesterday i was getting out my car and the camera fell out my bag, the lens still works fine but now the camera is refusing to take more than 1 photo and saying "card is full". Tried my brothers memory card in it and its doing the same although his memory card works fine with his camera (nikon d60). Someone help!

Camera has been dropped and landed on lens - lens now wobbly and auto focus not working all the time - due to lens wobble? easily fixable or does it need it be seen? Could be a lens fixing clip fallen off I suppose, but any advice welcome.
Definitely will need to go in for service, I used to fix Panasonic Digital camera's for 4 years. Unit will probably need a replacement lens unit. Not a cheap fix, but get an estimate, or use your household insurance. ... Digital Cameras
Good Day. I dropped my Nikon Coolpix L16 camera onto a table. Since then when i switch the device on the lens goes out about a quarter and the goes back in and i get a lens error message. I noticed that when the lens goes out it bends to the right(looking from the top) and gets stuck by something. When i pull the lens a little to the left while switching it on everything works fine. A very small metal part came out of the camera. Any ideas? is it repairable?

Hi there, I purchased a Casio Exilim Ex-S880 8.1Megapixel Digital Camera last Christmas. Intermittently the camera just stops working for no apparent reason. The power just turns off with the lens in the 'out' position. It will do this with a fully charged battery and has to be left for maybe an hour before it will work again. Have you any idea what may be causing this? The camera has never been dropped or abused in any way. Thanks for your help. Regards, Colm

My Pentax K100D has suddenly stopped working. It hasn?t been bumped or dropped or anything. A few days ago I was still taking pictures, and then a day or two later when I tried it, it wouldn?t work. When you press the shutter release button, nothing happens. No autofocus, no picture is taken, nothing. The only thing is that you hear a fairly rapid clicking sound, perhaps like a gear wheel turning or something. I tried various settings, new batteries, a different lens, autofocus, manual focus, ev

Olympus FE-270 Hello, my daughter dropped her Olympus FE-270 and it won't work properly ow. It seems to take photos indoors but if you take an outdoor photo the screen turns white like it's over exposed and now when you turn the power button on the lens moves in and out but then it turns itself off.
