Hi,
I am Himadri..
When you try to take a picture then exactly what happen ?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

You can't get the camera to focus on anything.

Expert:  hsroy79 replied 3 years ago.
Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens. This type of a problem usually occurs if the camera was dropped while the lens was extended. In such cases, the lens barrel was moved from its regular place and your goal would be to try and put it back into place. Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a click as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on and let me know the result..

Camera hasn't been dropped while the lens was extended. The gap around the lens looks equal all the way round.

It was working fine until I was looking back through pictures I'd just taken and I accidently caught both the buttons on the back of the camera together. Since then, it seems to have knocked out the auto focus.
