Take out the batteries for a long time and try again later. That might reset whatever internal firmware the camera is using? Just a guess...

There are several problems with my camera one of them is the fact in that Every time i turn on my Lumix 10x mega pixel camera the lens won't focus it also won't let me take any pictures. When i turn the camera off the lens won't go back into the camera but when i turn it back on the lens gos in and then out again. There is one more problem whenever i go to look at the pictures on play i can look through a few before its says "please turn camera off then on a again" it also says the same message


OK, if there is sand in the camera, the gears will bind or stop causing the error that you described. I think it needs to be taken apart and cleaned by a service center before using again. Or you could buy a spare caemera to use on your family holida ... Digital Cameras

Lens stuck I have had this problem twice with this camera, the first time I exchanged the camera for a new one. The second time the batteries went dead and the lens was out. It won't turn on and makes this beeping noise when I do try to turn it on. I tried changing out the batteries, but nothing seems to help.


Here is how I fixed this problem. I grasped the lens around the base (larger part) like you would if you were going take off a beer bottle cap. Very gently while sliding my thumb and index finger around the lens, I rocked it back and fort ... Polaroid I533P Digital Camera

Does anyone have instructions for getting at the lens mechanism? I totally understand the risks of doing this myself, but the cost of getting a shop to do this is nearly as much as a new camera! I am sure the problem is caused by sand. The lens at first just went in and out a few time, before the camera turned off. I vacuumed it, then slapped it against the side of my hand whilst turning it on - now it turns on properly with the lens out, but it wont focus - so you can only take blurry photo


I guess , lens got damaged; if that is the case you need to change the lens and its very complex process.You need it to get repaired from authorized shop. ... Olympus FE-280 Digital Camera

Error-C1 I was on holiday in dusty hot conditions when my second hand camara became unusable. I turned the camara on to take a photo and the zoom lens and shutter became stuck. The screen went blue and 'error-C1' appeared on the screen. Every time I turned it on thereafter the same blue screen came up and it makes a strange mechanical noise when I turn it on. It also turns itself off after a few seconds but the zoom still doesn't shut. The battery symbol still appeared but it appeared to be out

3 beeps One day my camera was working fine. The next day, I tried to turn it on and the lens came out just a little and then it stopped and beeped three times. It now makes this noise everytime that I try to turn it on. It did this before when the lens was uneven. However, the lens appears to be in proper place so I don't understand why it is doing that.

Lens error When I turn on Nikon Cool Pix S230, it tries to adjust the lens for a little bit then it says lens error.  It is only a few months old.  I think what caused the problem was the last time I took  a picture there was a strobe light in the background which caused the picture to look funny.  Then a few days later when I tried to work the camera I got this problem.  thank you!

I have purchased two Kodak C143 Digital Cameras since August of this year. The first one, only had for a couple of weeks, worked great at first and then when I would turn it on the lens would come out but there would be no screen at times. At other times the screen would disappear after a couple of seconds, but the lens would not close. I tried taking the batteries out and putting back in, but that did't help.

Hello typrice, at the second paraghrap you said: "Or the battery ran down with the lens extended." as a possible cause. I'm quite sure this is what happend with my camera (is a FE-340 model) so I tryed all the fixes 1 to 4, because I don't think it is a blocking problem of the lens. The simtom is just as discribed (lens go out and in 3 times, then turn off). I still can't fix the problem, there is any way to restart the software?? I find it should be simple to fix but still have no success... PL

I was shooting pictures with my camera at a concert. I used the zoom feture to zoom in, and it caused a zoom error in the camera. I turned the camera off to reboot it, but the lens stayed out. When I tried to turn the camera back on, the camera came on, but the screen went black. I tried taking the battery out, and put it back in some time later (maybe 30 min.-1 hr.). This did not fix the problem, and I don't know what else to do. How do I fix this?

I have a SONY Cybershot DSC W150. When I turn it on the lens goes kut and comes back in several times, then I get the error message "Turn the Power Off and On Again", but doing that does not change anything. This is one of four digicams I own (also a Nikon D90, SONY DSC F717, and a Canon) and I like the W150 for some purposes because it is compact and has a viewfinder, not just a screen. I have been unable to find a similar camera. What can I do to fix the problem? Gerry Meisels [email protected]
