Dropped camera I dropped my camera (hp photosmart m425) and now when i try to turn on the camera the lens won't come out and it says lens error m425-12 (7f 80). I really need to fix it, I hope someone can help me.


This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html ... HP Photosmart M425 Digital Camera

The camera was dropped in water for a few seconds. I managed to take the battery and memory card out after I retrieved it from the water. The camera was then dried and I was able to take a few pictures after the mishap. It's been a few weeks now and the camera does not work. I tried to charge the battery, thinking it was a bad battery, but the battery charger would continuously blink a red flash for hours! Can this camera be saved?

Olympus SP-550 UZ won't focus properly most of the time. Focus point should be infinity since my subjects are seascapes, sunsets and clouds. I've tried all 3 AF focus modes but none work consistently. I can get it to focus sometimes if point the camera at the ocean first. I've even tried manual focus but it won't focus to infinity. This camera is practically new, has never been dropped. Is this a known problem with this camera? Is it a settings problem (I've reset the camera to factory settings

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


Take it to an authorised samsung agent and they will either reset it or send it off to be repaired. ... Samsung Digital Cameras

Lens Problem Hello, I'm Kento from the states. I purchased the CASIO EX-Z700 series. However, I accidentally dropped the camera when the camera was on and the lens was extended. It makes a grating sound, and the monitor screen said "Lens error". Now, the camera is turned off with its lens extended. When I see the lens from the top, the lens position is more concentrated to the right, and the gaps between each lens is bigger on the left hand side of the lens. I sincerely hope this would help y

The battery is fully charged. The camera comes on for about 15-20 seconds and then the message comes on the screen:Please turn camera off and then on again.' when shutting down, the lens remains out. I have taken the battery in and out several times- no change. Not dropped or wet- no reason , it just started not working. Tried checking on the driver to do update available on the website, but it shuts down. Any hope for it? Love the camera!!! until now :-(

My Olympus FE-4000 camera lens got jammed when it was dropped on the hardwood floor. The camera turns on, but the lens will not move, it just stays crooked and clicks when it automatically tries to adjust. When I turn the camera on, nothing shows except the "Olympus" on-screen. It won't even allow me to plug it into my computer to retrieve the photos on the memory card

A friend of mine dropped my camera while the lens was extended. The camera now does not turn on but makes noise and attempts to turn on. The lens goes out and then back to the position it is stuck in. I don't know what to do to fix it or where to take it. I have an Casio Exilim EX-S10. It's an expensive camera, so I'm hopeful it can be fixed.

Turned on camera and all pics from memory card were erased. The number 670 still shows up in the right corner of the camer when I turn it on. When I take a picture, it says 1. Pictures and camera seem to be working fine. I took the memory card to CVS and pics are not there. I don't have a clue what happened to the pics I had on the memory card but I hope I can somehow retrieve them. Thanks


If you are using a memory card, take no more pics until you've recovered the photos, take the card out of the camera. This is to reduce the chance of you overwriting some of your "lost" photos. There are many good freeware photo recovery software o ... Kodak EasyShare Z915 Digital Camera

My casio EX-Z250 as been accidently dropped onto a soft floor from a small height this as caused the camera to disable itself and will not turn on but the lens as stayed out. I hope you can help....


Sounds like the lens could have been slightly tweaked, making it out of alignment just enough to not fully retract. You can try to GENTLY push it in the opposite direction to see if you can "reseat" it. If not, a service center is probably your bes ... Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z250 Digital Camera
