Having problems with your Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens ?

Hi i have dropped my d50 and err comes up

\015 Hi i have dropped my d50 and when I try to take a photo, the shutter seems to open but not close. when i press the button again, the shutter closes but there is no image . Can you help me please\015

Answers :

There is a motor/gear assembly inside the camera that moves the lens in and out and covers the lens when it is retracted. When it dropped, you most likely cracked or shifted something out of place. A broken tooth does not stop function, but shudders when it hits the gap. A shifted gear, slips and similarly may cause this effect. If it doesn't open the shudder, you get no picture.

You will need to open it up and attempt to repair the mechanics that drive the lens.

Dropped camera Camera dropped while lens was out. Lens was knocked crooked. My son attempted to push the lens back to center it and we heard a piece on the right side click or break.

You can reset the camera 2 ways... soft reset is to remove and replace the battery. To hard reset, there is a microswitch on the bottom of the camera body opposite from the battery compartment. Youll have to reset the camera's clock if you do this. I ... Nikon D50 Digital Camera with 18-55mm Lens

Hi there, I was taking photos with a 3 years old canon ixus 70 and suddenly the screen became black!! from then taking picture was impossible it comes out black too. All the menu buttons work properly, battery is full, sim card is correctly installed, video sound works but no images. This camera hasn't never been dropped and the lens looks pretty good. It doesn't come from the DISP. button because I first thought it was coming from this one but finally not... Any idea, ever heard about that prob


First verify that your camera is actually an SD500 (takes SD cards) and not an S500 (takes CF cards). If your camera is actually an S500, this would probably be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free worldwide, and may ... Canon PowerShot SD500 / IXUS 700 Digital Camera

Battery Charge My DSC-T1 battery does not seem to charge, when I plug it in, the yellow charge light comes on for awhile, than goes out. If I drop down the cover to turn it on, it comes on, and the battery shows not even half charged. When I close the cover again, the yellow light comes on for awhile, than goes out again like its not charging. Any suggestions? Thanks


Get another battery and try charging it. You should have a second, backup battery anyway. That should narrow it down between the charger and the battery as to which is defective. How old is the camera? It may be a better investment to put the money i ... Sony Cyber-Shot DSC-T1 Digital Camera

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

I have a 4 1/2 year old Nikon 8800VR. It has always worked and except for being rather sluggish, has performed nicely. After a smallish bump, the lens seemed to get stuck - it tried to come out but just whirred until an "err" message came up (not lens err). My RepairTech warranty would still be in effect if Repairtect still existed but it does not seem to, and the only estimate I have is for $300. My question - is this reasonable, and given the age of the camera, is it worth it? And, is there an

I can only turn on my Cybershot DSC-N2 while the camera is in playback mode. I can look at the pictures and videos and change settings with no problem.. but when I try to switch to camera or video record mode the camera turns off by itself. Sometimes the lens will come out and then the camera powers down with the lens stuck out. Other times it just shuts off before the lens even has a chance to come out.

HI, the camera was hanging on back of a chair with the strap and slip off to the Tile floor. The camera takes pictures but, lines come across the screen as soon as the picture is taken.
