Having problems with your Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ2 Digital Camera ?

Stuck Lens My 4 year old got a hold of my Konica Minolta Dimage G6000 and now my lens is stuck half way out. It will not move in or out. When it powers on I get "system error S0042." As I do not have a lot of money I am tempted to take it apart and see if I can fix it, but I don't want to make any problem worse. Any suggestions? Thanks, Todd.


Answers :

If you have recently dropped the camera you may have damaged the lens\015\012tube (housing). This damage will prevent the lens from moving properly\015\012and will cause the camera to shut itself off after a few seconds. If\015\012the lens is damaged the camera will require professional repair. If\015\012the lens is not damaged, the problem may be battery related. Make sure\015\012that\015\012you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are\015\012fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion\015\012on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full\015\012battery power from flowing to the camera. Remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy\015\012corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand\015\012paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery\015\012compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and\015\012reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about\015\01290% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

When I turn on my Nikon coolpix S210, it gives me a lens error prompt. I have read posts on another website and it said everything from hold the lens out by force to turn the lens slightly clockwise while it is out to rap it slightly a few times, to changing battery to taking the camera apart. Short of taking the camera apart, I have tried them all. Nothing works. I just put alot of money into the camera buying extra picture cards, batteries, etc. NOW IT WON'T WORK! And there doesn't s

Lens stuck I had been turning my Sony Cyber-shot DSC W50 off and on a few times, when suddenly as I went to turn it off, the lens got stuck and couldn't retract--just made this horrible mechanical noise like it was trying to do so but something was awry. Then this message comes up on the screen "Turn the power off and on again." I do as asked. Nothing. I take the (fully charged) battery out and see if that does the trick. Nope. No matter what I do, the lens will not retract, regardless of how ma

Stuck Lens I fell on my camera just recently and the lens is stuck open half way. When you power it on it moves a bit to the side and up, then to the other side and up and then beeps couple of times.

My kodak m763 quit working and i was wondering if i took it apart if i could fix it ...it may have gotten too damp in the rain, but the next day it turned on fine for viewing, then the lens would not extend out all the way out or go back in and it would turn itself off.

My d5000 fell on the floor and the filter glass of the lens broke. i tried taking pictures to see if it's still working but the view from the viewfinder is darker than usual and it would not take pics even if i press the shutter release button. should broken filter glass prevent taking pictures or does this mean there is another damage to the camera apart from the broken filter glass?


The filter should have nothing to do with the images recorded on camera (I assume it's an UV- or skylight filter).I'd say there's some more serious damage to your camera and you should take it to an authorized dealer repair shop. ... Nikon D5000 Digital Camera

The part that controls the aperture is stuck. Basically, when I look in the lens, the black part is still closed, and at first it stayed open too long. Now it is just stuck closed. I'm now in the UK, and it of course broke 1 day after the warranty ran out, so it's a no go to get fixed under warranty apparently. Now, I took it into a repair shop, and they said they see this happen a lot with digital cameras, and the more pictures you take the quicker the part will wear out. They're going to give
