I have a sony cybershot DSC-W120 (silver). When I power on the camera, the lens will not open? I am able to only review photos I have previously taken. What can I do to fix it?

Hi,

\012

If the Lens Mechanism is stuck the lens in the Camera will not open due to the malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
\012

Performing a manual power reset
\012

Turn off the camera.
\012

Remove the battery pack.
\012

Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
\012

Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
\012

Reinsert the battery pack.
\012

Turn on the camera.
\012

To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE Option from the Main Settings 1 Menu of the Camera to OK.This will set the user defined settings back to factory default. The images and videos will not get deleted.
\012

If the issue persists, service may be required.

"lens error" when i turn the camera on to shoot photos, the display says "lens error".   It sounds as if the lens mechanism is trying to open, but it doesn't move.   Lights keep flashing.  I am able to view pictures I have already taken, but not able to take pictures. I have tried recharging the batteries and replacing them, but it did not fix the camera.


This happened to me last month. You can send it to Nikon for a free estimate on repairs. You only pay the shipping and they will ship it back to you if you decide not to fix it for free....only they don't tell you what is wrong with it. I suppose ... Nikon Coolpix 5400 Digital Camera

My Casio Exilim EX-Z750 Digital Camera fell off the table (about 3 feet) and now when I try to turn it on I just get a blank whitish-tan screen and the lens won't open or extend. I can't take photos or even look at my previously taken photos. Can this be fixed?


It can. take it to a Casio dealer/service center in your area (NOT the camera department at a chain store), and also check on line with Casio.com for repair options. Be sure to get a firm price, not just an estimate, before you commit to anything. ... Casio Exilim EX-Z750 Digital Camera

Canon Power Shot SX10 IS - I've had camera for about 4 months. As of a week ago, I can only use small view finder for taking photos; the 2.5 screen for viewing does not work now. Able to view photos previously taken. When viewing those photos, the ON/OFF light is GREEN, but is ORANGE the rest of the time. HELP!

We tried the Disp button and it does not fix the problem. Please help us figure this out. The book information has not solved the problem. Brian Anderson


Brian, A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may ... Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera

I have a HP Photo Smart Caera. The button on the top you mash to take the picture keeps falling off. I have had this fixed three times. This time it happened outside and I could not find the spring. Does anyone know where they fix HP cameras. The place I have been taken it to is not doing a very good job of sending it off. I would like to do it myself since the warrantee is up any way.

Camera had beer spilled over it. Not much but enough to stop it working. I took it to a camera repair shop in Vitnam, The guy said he could fix it and went to work on it, when i got it back it worked perfect for a while and all of a sudden it stopped showing an image on the display. I can however look at previously taken photos. Just cant take new ones. If i take a photo and then check if an image came out (even though i couldn't see an image when i took the photo) nothing is shown. I really hat

I have the Canon Rebel XTi. I am getting a message the CF card has a problem. I am able to put card in computer and it opens the files that are on the card. The camera screen shows a blank space where the photo count should be. I have cleaned the connectors on the body of the camera and the lense. The camera is maybe 1 1/2 years old and I have taken maybe 10,000 photos. could the card need to be replaced? or could it be the camera itself :<(

I have two olympus 1010 camera's. Both have been dropped. The lens is patially open and the cover not fully closed. One will turn on so you can see through the LCD but only the top third of the field is visible. When photos are taken that is what shows up. Also it tries to focus but can't get it clear. The second powers up with information on the LCD but instead of seeing through the camera you see black. Phots can be taken but they too are black. What is wrong and what can be done to fix them?

I have a problem with a Cannon Power Shot A610 as follows: The monitor is dark when the camera is turned on and the camera will not take photos. The playback works OK for reviewing photos previously taken before this problem developed. A Best Buy troubleshooter inspected it aand said the sensor in the cameera was bad and that I should buy a new camera because of the repair cost. I need a second opinion before making this decision.

My lense is stuck open despite turning my camera off. On turning my camera on I am told ''turn camera on off then on'' but the lense does not retract. I am able to view all photos on the memory card as well as turn the camera on and off, however at each point when the lense should retract it stays fixed out. Can this be fixed?


This is not a joke........Use a can of compressed air and blow around the lens while it is extended. Take a relatively firm approach with this problem slap the camera into your palm two or three times. Not lens down in this case, bu ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W120 Digital Camera

I makes a grinding noise and does not show any picture on the screen. The flash goes off when I push the button, and the little guide dots on the lcd screen shows, but the the screen stays black.

The power turns on but the shutter door will not open or extend, it prompts to turn off the power and turn power back on. I am able to see the photos thru the home button already taken that are stored on the card and do the other functions, but am unable to shoot new pictures because the shutter door remains closed. You can hear it trying to open but it will not.


Usually when you see this either the shutter cover motor has a problem or the cover is jammed. You can try gently helping the cover open but don't force it. You haven't mentioned the camera model so I can only give you some generic advice ... Digital Cameras

Message Display I have a 256MB memory card for my camera. I have not taken many photos. Even at the lowest picture quality setting of 640, the camera reads that I only have 146 images to take. When I try to review what is in the camera, I receive the message "No Valid Image to Play." The instruction manual explains that the message means. However, I was not able to find anything that tells what to do to increase the number of available photos from 146 to more. This problem happened once

The screen on my camera has smashed. I can still take photos, but can't see them until I transfer them to my PC. How can I fix this? My Kodak C813 (KCGHR73603945) has a splattered window which does not show the picture to be taken nor the reviewed pictures. Can Kodak replace this window at a reasonable price??


For replacing the screen, you would probably be better off just buying a new camera. Kodak probably won't be very cheap but it never hurts to call and ask. I know some electronics retailers also fix stuff like that so I would maybe ask about it there ... Digital Cameras

I bought my camera Christmas Eve, and a new memory card Christmas Day. Yesterday, I tried turning the camera on and the lens opened and shut automatically and said Lens Error with a Large Red Exclamation point. I've come to the conclusion that it was because I hadn't formatted the new memory card with the camera and I'd already taken a few pictures with it. But now, when I turn the camera on, it no longer says that and only has a blurry image and does not take photos. I do not know how to fix th

Canon s21s I bought my camera in March 2006 and have not had a problem until 2 weeks ago. Both the viewfinder and LCD screen are black when trying to take a picture but the icons remain on the screen. The lens continues to pop out so obviously something in the lens shutter is not opening up. But previously taken photos are visible with the playback mode. Has canon offered any help yet?

A friend dropped my camera on the weekend (a CASIO EXILIM EX-Z70) and the lens is definitely broken (it says LENS ERROR) and takes half photos (half black half normal image). The camera is still able to view images I had taken previously. Just wondering how much this type of repair costs, so I can look around and not get ripped off! Thanks


The repairing cost depends on the condition, the actual damage. And important is where you live. Because in some countries the labour is too high to fix the camera. ... Digital Cameras
