Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FS5 Digital Camera ?

Dropped and lens is bent - doesn't focus or close now


Answers :

Hi,
Unfortunately, nothing can be done from our side . You need to replace the lens it is damaged .
You need to take to service center to get it repaired .

Hope this helps .
You will probably find that the cost of repairs will be far greater than the replacement cost, meaning that it will probably be cheaper to buy a new one.Either way, I suggest that you buy a small strap that will go around your wrist, to save you dropping it again

I have two olympus 1010 camera's. Both have been dropped. The lens is patially open and the cover not fully closed.

The second powers up with information on the LCD but instead of seeing through the camera you see black. Phots can be taken but they too are black. What is wrong and what can be done to fix them?

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 I have a C-8080 and I like it but I'm not sure if it is working 100%. The lens barrel is sloppy from side to side and clunks slightly when moving it quickly. It has been that way since it was new. It has some issues with auto focus as well. It has a hard time focusing on clouds and soft objects at infinity. I called Olympus when I bought the camera and mentioned the sloppy lens barrel and they told me that that is the way there made. It is slow to focus when going from close objects
