P7000 - How to keep the lens in "Retract" condition in Review Mode ???
 
As captioned

Just for safety reason not to damage the lens


Thanks in advance for any advice!

I have not found a way to have the lens retracted in Review Mode.

Thanks Frank for your testing!

Believe it or not, I just found some hidden magic operations that could achieve my purpose

1. While holding the [Playback] button for e.g. at least 5 sec.

2. Slide your finger over the Power On button (I mean slide, not press)

Then the P7000 would start in Playback mode.

I am not sure if the operations are doc'd in the User Manual or not.


I didnt find that completely by random trial or pure luck

Somebody told me b4 on another DC such operations.

But I forgot it on using the P7000.

Now I just recall and apply the same trick.


BTW I am wondering if all DC's OS were written by a single programmer or based on the same parent program.

Thanks. I just tried it and I did not have to touch the power button. All I did is hold down the Playback button (I was just about to slide my finger over the power button) until the camera came on and I was in Playback and the lens stayed retracted. What is especially nice is that all the menus are available.

I then found the instruction on Page 30 of the manual near the bottom under "Pressing the > Button to Turn on the Camera. :) I never did read the Playback section.

Thanks for correction!

You are right, no need to touch the on/off button. I think I was also about to slide my finger but the Playback had been turned on already. So I thought the on/off button had to be triggered.

I also found it doc'd in the manual too.

Unfortunately, my kid was so excited about the new toy that he pressed his finger right on the lens b4 I taught him the Playback trick.

Hope there is no damage to the lens coating and the finger print could be removed by cleaning liquid.

It might be enough to breath on it (I assume that won't hurt the coating) and use a lens cleaning cloth.

Thanks for comforting & advice!

Fortunately I have not seen any scratch up to this moment.

Rather a small piece of dust managed to get into the front glass.

But seems doesnt affect image quality yet.


I hope it will get out naturally later, as easily as it got into the lens.
