Having problems with your Digital Cameras ?
My camera was dropped and now the lense is jammed in. and it will turn on and say lense erro. and it will shut off.
is there anything that i can do with out having to go to a shop?
I suggest you call Nikon Support and ask them to replace your lens motor. If your under warranty, you might as well get a replacement. Otherwise, you can ask a repair shop to replace your lense.

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would retract itself, but when I tried to take pictures again, the lense would go out and "lense error. restart camera" would appear on the screen. A few weeks ago I finally got my camera fixed at a shop. I got the camera back and used it for about a week, now the same problem is happening. I've

I have a Quantaray lense 28-105mm lense. This is the second lense I have purchased because the mount seems to be weak and it breaks so therefore won't work. I have been told by the camera shop that this cannot be repaired. I looks only to be a simple repair to me by replacing the mount which it only screwed onto the lense. What is your thought on this?

My Coolpix S220 (Nikon)'s lense is stuck. The lense itself is not straight and it won't turn on or off beause the lense will not go back in. I'm not sure how it happened because I didn't drop it or anything. How do I fix this?

Everytime I try to zoom in the picture just gets blurrier and blurrier. I've cleaned the lense. I even tried switching lenses. It was fine for the other lense...I tried switching all settings. I didn't drop it or anything..HELP!
It would be useful to know which lens you are using. Have you tried aiming the AF area to a contrasty spot? If you aim at something which is not contrasty enough the AF cannot focus. It can also happen if it is too dark. \015\012I would also tr ... Nikon D60 Digital Camera
Power doesn't work properly. When I turn off camera with power button, lense stays out. When I turn on, the lense goes in then back out again, but after a few seconds, I get the message: "Please turn camera off then on again." If I don't do anything, the camera will turn off by itself, and the lense will go in. Battery is fully charged, and nothing dramatic happened to start this problem...

Canon SD600 I used my camera to take pictures of fireworks and I noticed that afterwards, all the photos I was taking outside in daylight were turning white. If I take pictures in the dark, they turn out perfect, and low light pictures are fairly normal except anywhere where there is a light source (lamp, window, etc) the color is streaky and orange. This particular camera has no way to adjust the aperture settings and I am considering taking it to a shop to have it looked at. Is there anything
It sounds like you may be in a low light mode. Put the camera in record mode, and then press the set button (in the middle of the up down left right keys). You probably want the camera to be in automatic mode (or A). If this doesn't solve the prob ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera
