On my HP 537 camara my daughter dropped it now the switch that makes the camara go to view pictures or take movies will not work, it just slides back and forth? Is there a way I can open it and fix the switch?

LENS PROBLEM Lens keeps zooming in and out when I turn it on. After 4 times, the lens goes back in and it says on the screen, "Turn the power off and on again". Then it does the same thing when I turn it off and back on. Also, the shutter is not closing however it's also not all the way open. Almost half way but more open than closed. Please help!!!
The slightly open shutter is the reason for this problem. Thank God you mentioned it. \015\012Solution: Try with your fingers to shift the shutter “blades” back and forth to see if they move freely. If they do no move freely it maen ... Sony Cybershot DSCW80 7.2MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom and Super Steady Shot

Lens Error I fell while holding my camera. The lens was open at the time and when I got up I turned the camera off. I then turned it back on to check it and the lens opened and immediately closed with the "lens error" on the screen. I can turn it off and on and the lens will always open but closes as soon as it has opened with the lens error on the screen. The shutter opens but closes also, like the lens. Can this be fixed? It was a gift so I don't have the bill of sale but I still have the orig

A classic one... so it seems, but I could not find an answer here or elsewhere. My Lumix DMC-FP1 normally can be turned on by either opening the lens cover or by pushing the 'ON' button. It does not any longer recognize the fact that the lens cover IS open. When pushing ON it comes back with message "Please open lense cover", even with cover open. Yes the thing did fall ... I have downloaded service/repair manual but there are no hints on how to fix. Can it be fixed? That is the question.
You will need to read the section which says lens dissassembly. If the lens is not extending when the error message appears, then it is likely that something is preventing it from extending. My money would be on lens gears, which are either dislodged ... Panasonic Lumix DMCFP1 Digital Camera
Hello, I recently purchased the Canon powershot sd1400. I connected the camara to my computer for the first time to download my pictures and it worked. Now i tried to do the same but my computer no longer recognizes it is connected. I then installed the software(disc) and reconnected the camara. I attempted to open the camara window but I keep getting the error message that reads "can not detect camara. please check connection and try again." I've been doing this for hours and still no luck.
If you have another USB port, try it. You can easily solve your problem by getting a card reader...they always work. ... Canon PowerShot SD1400 IS IXUS 130 Digital Camera
Sony DSC-W70 digital camera - Lens attempts to open when pressing the power button but fails with a message to turn off and back on again. Bought a new battery and still does the same thing. Sometimes can get lens to open if tapping it in the palm of your hand while it is attempting to open. Once lens is open camera works normally.
That's a common problem on Cybershot cameras, happened to me twice, the solution is to get it to a camera shop for repair.\012\012The cause could be dirt or a malfunction on the lens extending mechanism. ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W70 Digital Camera

I use the camera for an hour and everything is fine then I leave it in its case for like 10 minutes and when i turn it back on the shutter wouldnt open! Please help! :(
You mean the lens protector doors, not the camera shutter. This seems to be a problem on this camera. Aparently you bumped it against something or dropped it. The only way I know of to fix this is to take it apart and set the arm of the spring again ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-LZ5 Digital Camera

Hubby put our daughter's Nikon Cool Pix in his pocket, bent over and now the lens cover is stuck partly open, and won't close all the way. The camera says "lens error".

Brought my cyber-shot to the beach and had it in a camera case. When I got home it was a little bit moist on the inside of the case, and the lens would not open at all. On the screen it said to power the camera on and off again. There were a few grains of sand around the lens so I gently tapped in and it opened. Now, although it is opening I still cant take pictures. It is still giving me the same message to power it off and back on. Is this fixable?

I have the Niko S210 and took some video. I had Windows Vista and did not understand how it worked. With Windows XP I could plug the camera in and go to My Computer, find the camera and drag and the videa onto my desktop. I did this in Vista and the file can not be opened by any program. The file size is correct but I cant open it. I have since changed back to Winddows XP and I still can not open the files. These are short videos of my sons birth and very important to me.

Optio M20 Camera: Press on/off button to power up camera, the camera opens the lens cover, turns on a red led inside the lens, cycles the lens out and back in,then makes about 5 little popping noises. The back screen shows Pentax Optio screen for a second, then then the screen displays the word Auto Picture in the center of the screen and Green Mode at the bottom and at the same time it cycles the lens out and in. And for a brief moment in the back ground of the screen you can see the picture st
