Answers :

Well if you try and fix it, you may need a new lense, and the prices may run close to the price of a new camera, so you might as well just get a new one and keep the old one for parts, just in case you drop it again ;)

Dropped camera The camera, approximately 3 years old, was dropped from a sitting position. The zoom lense is extended and will not close. When the on/off button is pressed the small green light to the right on top of the view screen flashes and that is all. I wonder, is it worth trying to get it repaired?

I dropped my camera in the sand and the lense won't close. When I turn it on it makes a buzzing sound and states ''Lense error, restart camera'' and then turns off.

After about 50 on & Off's the camera turns on but doesn't come out of playback. I have to open the battery compartment and close it then when I turn it on it will go into capture mode.

My doughters seemed to drop the camera onto a grass field, while the camera was opened, now the camera cannot be closed properly nor opened. I took out a small straw of grass from the lense, but something seems to be stuck there. Is it worth taking it to a pro for fixing, or just look for a new camera, since this one was good but a bit out of date.?????

I found a Quantaray 55-52 mm step down ring (Manufacture # 241664614) on Wolf Camera's website that I am interested in purchasing, but want to make sure it would work for me. I have some close up lenses (Hoya) for my old Canon SLR film camera (55mm) and was hoping I could use those lenses on my newer Nikon DSLR (52mm) camera. Would the step down ring make it possible to attach and use my old camera's close up lenses on my new DSLR camera? Thanks, Jerry


No. The 55-52mm step-down ring will let you attach a 52mm attachment onto a lens with a 55mm thread. You want a 52-55mm step-up ring. ... Digital Cameras

Zoom error I turned my F470 camera on and received a "zoom error" bar across the screen. The lense does not move outwards after I turn the power on, nor does the plastic sliding screen close when I turn the camera off. The lense is exposed whether or not the camera is on or off. The lense does not make any sounds when I turn the camera on, but I hear (what I think) are the gears when I turn the camera off. When the camera is on, the screen is working, but the image is blurry. I tried other poste
