The problem I am having with my Canon PowerShot S2 IS is the iris is staying closed. No matter what I do it just stays closed. What could have caused this? How would I fix this problem?

Sorry, it doesn't sound like a quick fix is going to work here. The lens sounds like it took a pretty good hit and may be misaligned now, which is keeping it from fully retracting. Your best bet is a service center at this point. ... Samsung S1070 Digital Camera

Same problem "Hello pros I need help. The lens on my digimax cyber 530 will not close(retract) completely when I turn off the camera.

My Samsung TL220 lens won't close. It doesn't display an image on the front or the back. However, when I trigger the menu, the lcd displays "No Image File". It does go through and displays all the different menu options, so the lcd must be o.k. Could this be fixed with software or software update or do you think this is a hardware problem? ( I've noticed several TL220 that have this problem.) Is it an easy fix & how much do you think it would take to fix? Thank you.
Well, there must be a setting that was unintentionally set. First, I need you to try restoring the camera to its default settings. Go to Menu settings and then choose Reset. Let me know if this works or not so that we can move forward to other fixe ... Samsung DualView TL220 Digital Camera
My C1030 digital camera, which I bought at the end of december 2010, is having a major problem. The lens won't close anymore and when i try to turn it on, it makes a strange noise and it gives a black screen and turns off and still the lens won't get in, it stays out. I tried new batteries, but that's not the problem. Please advise.

Just bought a Sharp VL-ZL at a yard sale. Great price but I'm beginning to see why. First came the 'dew' issue, but I read here what that is and what to try. The next day a new problem occurred, and this one's not only weird, but I can't find anyone online with a similar issue. The cassette door will not stay closed with a tape inserted. Take the tape out and it closes fine. Any thoughts? Thanks.

I am in France on vacation from USA and am really bummed as My Sony Cybershot DSC-W370 will not close. The display says "Turn the Power off and on again". I've done this several times with no results. I am staying at a remote villa with no phone service. Can you help me via email? I have had many Sony cameras in the past and have preferred this to my Canon since it is so hard to carry. As I recall previous similar problem was resolved by a reset hole I pushed a pin into but I see no reset

Not a problem with the camera but the Samsung Master photo editor that came with it . Been working great for two years but now when I edit a pic and try to close it and select another I get an error message "Other system is busy" . Gives me the option to "switch to " or "retry" but neither option does anything . Tried uninstalling and reinstalling but it didn't help .
Sounds like a computer problem....for example, insufficient RAM. ... Samsung BL103 Digital Camera

Lens cover My lens cover will not close. I have put in new batteries. the camera will turn on and off with no problem but the lens cover stays open.
I know this is an old post, but for those who want to fix it themselves: try blowing lots of compressed air around the open lens shutter to clean the mechanism. Or use a hair dryer for a few seconds (don't want to heat up the camera). Also with the l ... Casio Exilim EX-Z120 Digital Camera
I have a samsung digimax A402 camera. I have never had a problem with it powering on until now. I have placed brand new double A batteries and when I press the power button on the camera the screen tells me my battery is low and the camera powers off. I have tried different brands of batteries as well. What is the reason my camera will no longer turn on and stay on with new batteries installed?
My camera did exactly the same thing. I found that there was a minute trace of corrosion on one of the battery conections inside the body of the camera. After cleaning up the contacts to remove the corrosion the camera powered up without fault. It di ... Samsung Digimax A402 Digital Camera
I have a samsung digimax cyber530 and it wont stay on and switches itself off all the time. I also have a Kodak V1253 and have the same problem
Do you mean it switches off while taking pictures? or when not in use after a minute or so? check 'auto power off' in menu and see if its set for a short time and if you can change it. ... Digital Cameras

When I turn the power on, it 3 times makes a hard noise 'peep peep peep', no display and then shut itself down. What can it be? Can I solve the problem myself? Thank you! greetings Remco
This is a common problem with cameras. They can get bumped when the lens is out, and that can jam the gear assembly, or break a gear. I could run down all the things you can try to free it up, but there is a better web page that deals with issue ... Digital Cameras
My Samsung S860's lens will not close. The camera is off though. Everytime I try to turn it on, the green light comes up, until I take my finger off of the button. The screen doesn't show up or anything. I've changed the batteries, so that isn't the problem. What should I do?
You need to take it to a camera shop, they probally have this problem more then you might imagine. They could replace the lens, as you have had the camrea only 7 months, its probally still under the manufactuer warranty. look for the manufactuer cont ... Samsung S860 Digital Camera
My wife has a Nikon D40 DSLR. The battery door will not stay closed. If she gets an external grip does the innternal battery still need to be accessed by the camera or will this solve the problem of not maintaining battery power?
The external grip will hold one or two battery pack(s). It slides into the battery well, replacing the battery and the door. If the problem is with the door itself and not with the body, getting the external should fix that problem. ... Nikon D40x Digital Camera
My camera is all messed up It's a Pentax Optio Z10. When I turn it on it is stuck in "Green Mode" then after a few seconds, turns off.
