hi everyone. first post. I am needing help diagnosing this camera. at first it was working but the lens would try to retract uneven(one side would retract quicker and it would get stuck) and the lens shutter/protector would not stay open. now when i turn it on the screen is blank. i can see all of the menu options but nothing through the lens. the lens never retracts like it is suppose to when i cut it off. all it does is go in and out about 3 or 4 times and then stay out and the lens shutter/protector is open at all times not. any help would be appreciated thannks

Welcome to EPZ. Smile

If the camera is still under warranty it needs to go back to the manufacturer. If not, binning it may - sadly - be the only option. Repairing an inexpensive camera like this is unlikely to be economically viable.
