THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!!!! You must have the lid/door on this connector flipped open at this point! It will not turn off with the power button, but it will eventually turn off by itself.

Once you have removed the rear cover/bezel: Removing the panel with the buttons and rear-panel wheel: Once you have successfully removed the camera's back, place it lens-down, preferably on a clean, thank you so much for this blog! She's taken so many photos with black edges because the two grey lens covers don't fully retract.Someone mentioned here that he attempted to clean the grey lens covers with alcohol.

I do not own an S8100 - I just fixed it for a friend and gave it back, so I don't have it around to look at! The trick is ... I have a Sony Cybershot Cam DSC-W35. you can try this out After doing all three things once, I repeated the one using a thin piece of paper.

I have a Sony Cyber-shot with 7x zoom, 14.1 mega pix. I just dropped my camera on the lense, the lense wont zoom to 3x and the focus is messed up. I tried applying pressure to the larger lens it worked and had a display several times but the lens won't go in. I tried everything, and it seems that blowing with sharp breaths helped most.

  5. Using your fingernail, flip this up and you should be able to flip it up and free it.
  6. Prevent the spring 'disappearing' when you try to put it on as I did when I tried to reuse the broken one.I blew dust off lens components by using a hand
  7. Pressing down on it slightly, slide it to the right (away from the LCD) to allow it to clear the one tab at the top and the two at the bottom,
  8. when i droped my camera while using it , the lens got stuck and would not open and the camera wouldn't work .I just thought I broke it.
  9. My Panasonic DMC TZ-3 returned to normal after applying your vacuum cleaner method.Tnx.

Don't forget to put it back later!

Not really. THANK YOU JEFF! I tried the vacuum idea but that didn't work, and neither did the paper or the tapping. check over here The ONLY noise that it makes is a musical "bling" from the speaker.

Works beautifully, I found a plastic screw on lens hood with cover on ebay, much better solution and never have to worry about a sandkorn or whatnot to paralyze the otherwise Keep up the good work helping other people. :) September 1, 2009 at 9:31 PM Anonymous said... I guess there is a problem with the backlight of the LCD.

It will also lever out, but that risks breaking the catches.The shutters need to be CLOSED (lens in) for reassembly.

There is only 1 big problem everything works except the shutter.. Thank you so much and glad i found this site I was blessed to find it ! Now my daughter has a camera to take back to USA with her! this content You mentioned that keeping your camera in a case is a bad idea due to the lint and fibers getting into the lens cover and jamming it.

thanks all. Then I vacuumed the lens opening with the blades fully retracted. Some of this advice may apply to other cameras, but I don't know! I'm looking at the Nikon S8100 and it sure seems like a lot of people are having this problem.

I used all three methods mentioned above, except used a vacuum cleaner hose instead of compressed air. While it was close, I took a q-tip and some rubbing alcohol and cleaned the cover. I used tweezers and a dental pick. Left side: (The side without the HDMI connector/wrist strap).

THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU! Check if the ring going around above the retracting lens cover is bent. So, it is on to the vacuum cleaner.. It also taught me how to release the ribbon wires by lifting black clips.To 'fix' the problem, I swapped the spring over using a needle so now the camera opens the

One "B" type (short black) screw near the bottom of the camera, and a long black screw (what I call type "C") UNDER the HDMI cover. I suspect that some of the inside mechanism went bust...I was in a hurry to take some pictures, so I taped open the lens cover and could do the job. You can now align the cable so that it slides into the connector - but this is quite tricky. ps.
