Answers :

I have this camera and it's been broken for a while, I got sand in the mechanism when I was on the beach.
\015\012
\015\012I'm a completely a-technical guy, but I opened it up (4 screws, 1 of 'em next to the batteries). Be careful taking off the cover, but you do need a little force. (Be careful in general, actually.)
\015\012
\015\012Inside, I lifted the black hatch on the bottom left of the lens. (2\015\012screws). There are 6 (white) cogs of different sizes underneath, which\015\012connect to the main (black) cog which extends the lens. Under the white\015\012cogs is the motor for the lens, but unless you get absolutely no\015\012buzzing or anything when turning the camera on (which would mean your\015\012motor is toast) you don't need to go here.
\015\012
\015\012I made a schematic drawing before taking out all the little cogs and\015\012sprockets and whatnots. I cleaned them one by one with a needle and put\015\012them back using tweezers. I tested it by pushing the main (black) cog\015\012with the needle, clockwise, and pulling out the lens manually. It came\015\012all the way out, whereas before it didn't, so I closed it back up, and\015\012it was fixed!
\015\012
\015\012Good luck.
Hey alex2716,
\015\012 This problem is usually caused by either damage to the lens, or something inside the lens is obstructing the movement of the lens (i.e. sand). You could take the camera apart and see if there is something obstructing the movement of the lens but unless you are a camera repair technician you could easily do more harm than good and it would void out any warranty the camera might be covered under. I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician, and maybe all it needs is a good cleaning. I hope this helps!

\015\012Allan
