I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and I was looking at picture I had taken and the lens was retracted. I switched to the camera mode and the lens started to come out and hit my leg and stopped half way. The lens went dark. I turned it off to retract the lens and then turned it back on. The lens came all the way out but the screen is still black and I could feel the camera and just barely hear it making the noise it makes when the lens is coming out but it was already all the way out.

Black Screen ive got a black screen when i take pictures; everything else on the camera works. the menu's pop up; the pictures ive taken show on review. but the actual view doesnt show anything and is completely black so whenever i take a picture its just all black. i just got this camera for christmas and it hasnt been dropped or exposed to liquid. it doesnt show a lens error number either; because i dont even think it knows it has one.. its just black though.
I have the exact problem. I came on slowly, some days it would work, some days it wouldnt. Finally i couldnt get it working at all. Sent it back to Kodak as it was still under warranty, the repair center claims it was "physical damage". They admit th ... Kodak Easyshare M753 Digital Camera
Lens broken my camera fell off a table and now the lens is screwed up. when i turn it on it is just a black screen. but if i press firmly on the right side of the lens, the picture blurs, fuzzes, and then comes into focus, once i take my finger off it goes black. so i can take pictures, but only with my finger on the lens. it seems like this is fixable. what can i do?
Not easily fixed. Sounds like you stripped the feeds for the lense, and it messed up the contacts. Try sending it to Kodak for repair, or taking it to a camera repair place. These devices are sensitive electronics, so you won't be able to fix it at h ... Kodak EasyShare One Digital Camera

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.

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

Lens issue A black screen comes up with the word access. The lens seems like it is trying to fix itself but is jammed. After a few tries the screen says: Turn the power off and on again.

On my Fuji s2000hd I have a zoom error, the screen is black and I can't take pictures. The lens will not zoom out. I believe that my husband put the lens cap back on before the lens had gone all the way in when he turned it off but I am not positive that is the problem. The lens seem centered and there doesn't appear to be anything blocking it from coming out. Is there a way to fix this?

I dropped my Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 and now the lens won't come out. It turns on and all but it just tells me to turn it off and on again, and it won't let me look at the menu. the circles in the lens are closed and it's pitch black looking at the screen and I tried pressing the shutter button once I turn it on and it just says to turn it off and on again. Also 2 times this occurred, when I could see with it but everything was still blurry and the lens opened up a little but just those 2 times.
