Answers :

Same problem lens error, the person in the shop said there might be a grain of sand stuck in the lens and it was my fault so the shop wouldnt change it. shame on you spetra photo in the cresent shopping center in limerick, shame on you. anyway ended up pushing in the lens and it went in but the black glass bit ended up inside the camera, so im not sure if thats the solution to the problem.
\015\012i reckon its just a really bad crappy product by nikon.
I have an Idea. Spend about an hour taking out the aporx 28 microscopic screws scattered throughout the inards of the camera, only to find that there is no way to access the lense assembly.
No, wait. I already did that, and it didn't work. Never mind.

My Panasonic DMC-TZ3 lens cover gets stuck and won't open completely. It has been getting worse. If I CAREFULLY assist it, it will fully open.

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. The screen is black and the light flashes red everytime I turn on the camera, along with a noise of something stuck. I have tried using that little button that someone told me was the reset button, along with plugging it in, and charging it. None of this has helped me with fixing

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.

Camera lens The lens itself is making a strange noise and it is having trouble adjusting itself when the camera turns on. When I attempt to turn the camera on all you are able to see is a black screen and there is also a buzzing noise which I assume is the lense trying to adjust itself. The lens is trying to push itself outwards but it is getting stuck. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with it but I assume that once Iam able to fix the lens I will be able to use the camera normally again.

Lens assembly The lens assembly has become loose. One of the outer rings has actually detatched from the camera body.When switching on - either the message 'lens fault' is displayed or a very blurred image is displayed in the LCD. The camera shop reckons the problem is quite common and estimates $A200 to fix ie replace lens assembly. Any similar experiences? (Of course, the camera is 3 months out of warranty).
