Having problems with your Sanyo Digital Cameras ?

My camera lens is stuck open and wont turn on


Answers :

Hi,

I am Sorry to hear regarding the Problem.This is a ' Lens \015\012Problem ' which is Quite Common on \015\012these Models.

It is not worth to get it Repaired, as the Cost of \015\012repair would be quite high as compared to the cost of the new camera.

There\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012 are a number of things you can try:

1. Ensure batteries are \015\012fully charged

2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera \015\012body for any sand or other dirt etc

3. Try turning the camera \015\012with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck

4.\015\012 Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 2 minutes and refit

\015\012

If no luck then we have to try some things that could possibly \015\012result in damaging your camera so should only be tried if happy to take \015\012that risk...



5. Try thumping the camera into your other \015\012hand, by thumping into your hand you are trying to jar the mechanism \015\012loose, by using your hand you will hopefully not do it too hard or it \015\012will hurt. You may need to do this a dozen or so times in different \015\012places to work. I have found the flat of the camera bottom into the flat\015\012 of your hand best..

6. If the lens is stuck in the out position \015\012then remove the batteries and try twisting the lens first one way then \015\012the other, do not apply excessive force when doing this or you can break\015\012 gears, you are trying to reposition not force... Likewise if the lens \015\012looks like it is crooked you can try pushing it back into position. This\015\012 has a higher chance of doing more harm than the thump so please be \015\012careful...

7. Dismantle the camera, not for the faint hearted, \015\012you need to dismantle the lens assembly into the main body of the camera

\015\012

If no luck then only other option is a serviceman I'm afraid, \015\012be sure to get a quotes as camera repairs can be uneconomical

Let\015\012 me know,if needed further assistance.

Hope i helped you.

Thanks\015\012\015\012\015\012\015\012 for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open.
