The problem is\015\0121- some dirt somehow got on the outside of the lense. After it was retracted fully in, it prevents the camera from opening again. When you turn it on, if it opens a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard and let go ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-N2 Digital Camera

Lens problems I have a Nikon Coolpix L3 and i accidently dropped it (about 2 1/2 - 3 ft) and now the lenses wont open and the camera says lens error. does anyone know how to fix it???
This is an awkward one. If you were clever enough to replace or repair the lens assembly you wouldn't be writing here so all I can advise is to have a very close look at the lens and see if you can notice any slight variation in it's positioning. If ... Nikon COOLPIX L3 Digital Camera

Hello people im trying to get into my daughters DMB fs7. i'v got the sides - the back off - but i'm trying to get to the lense. it wont open or close properly. i want to know why - think it has been dropped by little sister. does the outer face ring 'screw' off? my daughter also has a dmc-fh1 with a broken screen!! are the lenses inter changeable? Can one buy a screen to replace the busted one? I think it is a waste to through these out and buy another!!!! Help? Mark Phelan
Hi Mark....I'll tell you what I've figured out on this type of digital camera, and perhaps it will give you something to go on. First of all, when a digital camera with a zoom lens is dropped with the lens extended, damage to the tiny gears inside ... Digital Cameras

My Kodak c190 fell on the ground .. and the lens is slanted now and wont turn on. you cant see the two sides anymore either.. that are ment to open when you turn on the camera.
The repair for this problem is possible, but will probably involve replacing most of the camera, which will easily exceed the value of the camera itself. Your best bet is probably going to be replacing the camera. ... Kodak Easyshare C190 12MP Digital Camera with 5x Optical Zoom and 2.7-inch LCD

Will a 1500 mAh battery work in a Kodak DX 7590? The original battery was a 1700 mAh. Everything else is the same as the original battery. I thought the original battery was going dead and wouldn't re-charge, so I bought a new battery. The camera acts like it wants to turn on, but doesn't. The power comes on briefly, but camera lens doesn't open. The ring around the settings dial flashes green., then turns to red, and shuts off. Please help!!!! I love this camera!!!
The answer is YES, the Kodak DX 7590 can be supported by a Li-Ion 1700 mAh battery. The only difference is that the 1700 last longer. Just make sure the one you just purchased is fully charged. Otherwise, exchange that battery from the store you b ... Kodak EasyShare DX7590 Digital Camera

Take the lens off and look at the front of the camera body...on the left side ( 9 0'clock position ) is the stop down lever. Check if it looks bent to the side. It's pretty flimsy and can get bent out of shape. The top of that lever needs to be ho ... Digital Cameras

A classic one... so it seems, but I could not find an answer here or elsewhere. My Lumix DMC-FP1 normally can be turned on by either opening the lens cover or by pushing the 'ON' button. It does not any longer recognize the fact that the lens cover IS open. When pushing ON it comes back with message "Please open lense cover", even with cover open. Yes the thing did fall ... I have downloaded service/repair manual but there are no hints on how to fix. Can it be fixed? That is the question.
You will need to read the section which says lens dissassembly. If the lens is not extending when the error message appears, then it is likely that something is preventing it from extending. My money would be on lens gears, which are either dislodged ... Panasonic Lumix DMCFP1 Digital Camera
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
