Minnesota Musing: Camera Repair - Can a Lens Error be Resolved
I have two cameras that gave me the Lens Error message and refuse to stay powered on.
I do not know if I blew a belt, if my timing for my gears is off, or if it's some extremely easy repair that would gain me two cameras back in service.
I'm cheap. I don't want to take them in and spend hundreds of dollars to repair them. Not when a camera costs just over $100 to start with. Nope. It's been easier to just go buy a different one.
If we are going to place blame anywhere, my assumption is that it's not the cameras fault, even though it says it cannot go on. It is my fault, probably for having my cameras in a gravity prone spot that pulled my camera to the ground, and probably bounced that camera around a few times.
Yeah. I've dropped a few cameras in my time.
Don't get me wrong. I have had them fall out without my help, also. I keep my camera in some velcro flop over case. The velcro probably needs to be replaced. Yes. I do have some velcro, male and female to accomplish just this task.
Lens Error Repair
I'm going to have to consult Google for ideas, and perhaps watch a Youtube video or two.
Do you have any suggestions?
