Lens Stuck in Open Position
You are using your camera (taking pictures or videos) and turn the camera off, but the lens remains stuck.
Note: After testing the two troubleshooting solutions, turn the camera on and press the Playback button on the back of the camera to retract the lens.
Check the Battery Meter
Battery may have died and needs to be replaced or recharged. The best solution would be to check the Battery Indicator on the camera. If the Indicator shows the battery is low, replace or recharge the battery.
Dirt or Other Particles Jamming Lens
After much wear and tear, the camera lens’ can attract particles that can block the retraction of the lens. The best solution would be to use an antistatic electronic cleaning spray to get rid of any particles jamming the lens. In this way, it minimizes the chance for fingerprints on the lens or more particles jamming the lens.
Camera does not produce any sound upon use
Camera Accidentally Muted
The issue may be with the camera settings. The camera might have been accidentally muted. This issue can easily be fixed by going to the display settings and deselecting the mute option.
If the camera has not been muted then the only possible problem is that the speakers are damaged. This can be fixed by following the Speaker Repair Guide.
