Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-FX9 Digital Camera ?

Lumix lens retracts and extends

\015 My Lumix FX-9 won't keep the lens retracted. The lens is extended, but turning it on retracts the lens and then immediately extends it again. Same in viewing and picture taking modes. Will not autofocus and the zoom doesn't do anything. After a few seconds, it gives the "Please turn camera off and then on again" message. Removing battery and card doesn't help.\015

My Pentax Optio S10 digital camera is giving me problems. Initially the lens would not extend fully and would then immediately retract and the camera would then turn itself off.

Lens problem Hi. I have an Olympus FE-190 digital camera. not sure what happened, but now there is a problem with the lens. when i turn on the camera, the lens extends, retracts, several times (trying to find "home" I think).

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open. Waited a few minutes, turned it back on and I get the "access" display message then the beeps and (turn power off and back on) message. While off, I have removed the battery, replacing it with a fully charged spare and it still does this. The lens tries to telescope a little bit and retracts a touch, but I can't get the camera out of this mode. Can it be res
