Having problems with your Samsung S860 Digital Camera ?

I see two small black spots on the viewer and then on the image when I upload to computer. Not on the exterior surface of the lens as I tried cleaning with damp q tip with no results. Any suggestions?


Answers :

It sounds like you have some foreign objects on the inside portion of the lens or the actual mirror...since you have already tried cleaning the exterior of the lens, I suggest taking it to a qualified camera repair shop....or, if it is still under warranty, take to the store where it was purchased...

I have a VR lens that I've been using with my D5000 for about a year and a half now, with no troubles. Recently however, after a small bump to the lens, the camera refused to recognize it. I've tried the internet tips and tricks - resetting menus, cleaning contact surfaces... nothing works. Ideas? Or do I just need a new lens because something got jolted?

I have a Canon 40D and tried to use my Sigma 28-300 1:3.5-6.3 DL Hyperzoom lens on it but the camera kept telling me that it could not communicate with the lens and that I should clean the lens contacts. I cleaned the contacts several times (which were not dirty) but still got the same results. The lens is 5 or so years old, is it possible that the lens is not compatible with the 40D?


It could be that the lens, being so old, needs a firmware update. Go to http://www.sigmaphoto.com/service-support for a service form and instructions. ... Digital Cameras

I had the "Access" error when turning on my Sony DSC-W70. The lens would go in and out a few times, and then I would be instructed to turn the power off and on again, which did not help. After reading comments from a few people with the same problem, I tried yanking on the lens when it was out and giving it a good couple of twists. I also took a q-tip with alcohol on it and cleaned all around the sides of the lens. Worked like a charm!

I have a cannon camera, my boyfriend dropped it with the lens extended and now whenever I try to turn it on I get a message saying that there is a lens error and the camera will shut down. I have tried a couple of answers on this website, but most have to do with a lens that is stuck out, mine will still retract back and forth if you smack it on your hand. My problem is when you power it off and back on the error shows up and the lens will not extend then. Any suggestions are greatly appreciate
