The lens on my camera will not retract when I turn the camera off. This follows a time when the lens would not expand when I turned the camera on. It is a great camera for my needs, and I'd really like to use it longer than the 8 or 9 months I've had it.

Everytime I turn on my camera a lens error comes up on the display screen, even if the lens is off. It says I need to remove the lens cap every single time and I can no longer take pictures. I can only review images that are already on the camera.


Check to see if part of the lens cap snapped off into one of the connection areas or if the lens cap sensor is a button that is stuck down. If not, there may be damage to the electrical and or optical hardware behind the lens. ... Sony Cybershot DSC-H3 Digital Camera

Suspect the LS443 kodak "on" button was activated while in my pocket, causing the lens deployment that probably misaligned the lens and caused the current problem. The lens no longer deploys correctly. It will deploy with mechanical help, but functions improperly in some cases. Still takes pictures with coaxing. Any fixes that don't involve taking it apart?

My Nikon D60 fell and the lens came off. Now the lens no longer holds -- it appears that a piece of plastic has chipped which prevents the lens to click close. Where do you recommend I get it fixed.

If you are no longer covered by an in-store warranty, whether an extended service or recent sale (typically 30 days) type, going back to Best Buy probably will not help (but asking about it can't hurt). \015\012\015\012Nikon Customer Supp ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera with 18-55mm lens
