I CANT AFFORD ANOTHER CAMERA RIGHT NOW, IS THERE ANY SOLUTION TO MY PROBLEM?

Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something. Anyway with some trouble i could still open up the slider and thus start up my cam but then one day when i was trying to close my cam i started to slide it to close. Finally it closed and i slided the slider onto the lens but then the lens started to open up again. But the slider was in the way so the lens opened up


Dang, what a weird design. The lens needs to go threw a cycle before it can reach the idle position where it waits for a comand from the user. If its in the closed position and you turn it on it extends to its full range then stops at the idle positi ... Canon PowerShot S30 Digital Camera

When I turn the camera on, the lens cover opens and then closes. When I turn the camera off, the lens cover closes and then opens. So, how can I get the timing of the lens cover correct? Or can you tell me how I can keep the lens cover open all the time? (not the best solution but now I can't take a photo at all!)

Focusing Problem I have a Casio Exilim 10.1 Mega Pixel Digital Camera EX-s10 and I have had it for a little over a year now. I dropped it in sand and the lens would open then beep then close on its own. It stopped doing that and started working though in about 2 days, but now the focus isn't focusing. When I turn on my camera the image on the screen is blurry. What should I do?


Hi, if you can open your camera and remove the lens unit assy(just be carefull to the flat cable its easy to be broken) you can clean by yourself just to remove the sand goes inside of the lens unit and also to the gear.make it sure you need to use m ... Casio Exilim Card EX-S100 Digital Camera

Is there any way I can get my camera back to normal! I turned it on and it said "focus error". When I shut it off to see if it would start over correctly it would not close the lens. I turned it on and the lens closed and then opened again and wouldn't focus. I turned it off and the lens won't shut. How weird is that? It obviously is capable of opening and closing but seems to be reversed and makes a funny noise when it can't shut at the right time. Can I wiggle or giggle something? I bo

LENS PROBLEM Lens keeps zooming in and out when I turn it on. After 4 times, the lens goes back in and it says on the screen, "Turn the power off and on again". Then it does the same thing when I turn it off and back on. Also, the shutter is not closing however it's also not all the way open. Almost half way but more open than closed. Please help!!!


The slightly open shutter is the reason for this problem. Thank God you mentioned it. \015\012Solution: Try with your fingers to shift the shutter “blades” back and forth to see if they move freely. If they do no move freely it maen ... Sony Cybershot DSCW80 7.2MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and Super Steady Shot

Hubby put our daughter's Nikon Cool Pix in his pocket, bent over and now the lens cover is stuck partly open, and won't close all the way. The camera says "lens error". I have tried to close and open the cover, it just springs back to the partly opened position. I haven't seen this particular problem covered yet. What now?

When I turn on my Nikon Coolpix S9100 the lens opens, then closes, then opens and closes again and comes up with a lens error. The camera has not been dropped or mistreated. Is there anything I can do besides sending it in under warrantee?

My daughter dropped her sister's Nikon Coolpix S560 in the sanddunes today with the lens open. It still took pictures after that but the lens wouldn't close. Now it opens and closes and makes a grating noise like it's trying to focus, then it shuts down. Help! It is only 2 months old..


It seems that some sand particles are lodged between the lens casing and the camera's body. and when it finds that there is resistence in moving the lens, it shuts down. Use somethig that sucks, like the vacuum cleaner to **** the sand particles out. ... Digital Cameras

Olympus FE-210 I dropped my Olympus FE-210 when it was on and the lens was out. Now, the camera still workes fine, but the lens will not close all the way. After I shut it off, it opens and closes as if trying to fix itslef, but tops after three tries. The zoom still works, but it makes a clicking noise as the lens adjusts. I wouldn't mind any of this, except that now I can't upload my pictures. Normally, when I hook up the USB, a screen comes up on the camera dispaying my options. Now when I ho

My 2 year old son dropped the my husband's Canon G11 twice while it was open with the lens out. Now the lens won't retract or the shutter close. It gives me a 'lens error, restart camera' message and won't restart. I tried taking out the battery for a few minutes and replacing it and reopening the camera, but to no avail. I'm afraid of taking it to someone and having it opened as I know that the chances of damaging it that way are bigger. Please provide me with your soonest reply. Rania
