Lens error When I switch on my Exilim Z-500, the zoom extends only half way of what it used to and there's some cracking noise as if something was blocking it.

I can't take any pictures because the zoom setting seems to be totally messed up. The image is all blurry - at any distance. I partly disassembled the camera a

My Ricoh R4 camera has its lens stuck in the fully extended position. After switch on, it makes motor noises for a while and then stops and switches itself off.

I've had my Olympus FE-340 for 3 years, and I've never had any problems with it before. Now, whenever I try to zoom in, the camera takes white pictures or pictures with streaks in them. I've tried reseting the camera, changing the battery, changing the picture card, switching settings, and turning the flash on and off. Is there any way to fix the white/streaky pictures? Or, does this mean that my camera will no longer work when I try to zoom in?

Hp945lens When I fix a wide angle lens to my camera and switch it on, the zoom tries to come out, fails and then turns the camera off. I'm assuming that because the screw-on lens is on the outer fixed lens this is stopping the zoom from coming out which then turns the camera off. What am I doing wrong?


Hi Do you use a lens tube? You need one of these so the lens does not hit the screw on lens when it extends. Quite cheap on ebay etc. Standard 55mm thread.Hope this helpsjbrevealsall ... HP Photosmart 945 Digital Camera
