Here are the tips you need to be followed
#1:
Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on.
#2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.
#3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during start up. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particles that may be jamming the lens.
#4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
#5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum
#6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand.

    #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods.
    Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens
    barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or
    align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes
    looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the
    side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens
    barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there).
    While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that
    the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If
    you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera

Lens is not opening


Take the lens out and look the bottom side of the lens. There is a lever that operates the aperture leaves. If the aperture leaves does not move or moving slow, you have oils on the aperture leaves which need cleaning.
If the lens is good, the camera's lever that move;s this lens' lever mechanism had gone bad. Take out the lens and watch the aperture control lever moves when you trip the shutter. If it is moving, the problem is with the lens.

Lens is stuck out


Chanches are the lens received impact damage or there is some dirt, liquid like pop that is blocking your lens from moving. Try moving the lens and see if this will dislodge the lens. View the lens from top and sides, if it is sitting on an angle it has received impact damage.

  1. The white plastic gear that moves the laser must make contact with the "motor". A bad contact here can cause disk read errors. Sometimes it looks Ok, but you may need to remove the lens and bend the white gear for good contact.
  2. The two rails on which the lens move must be very slippery - which can be lubricated with cooking or motor oil. Usually the holes where the rail is (on the right side of the lens) are dirty or you have to bore then out slightly, making the holes bigger.
  3. The lens uses little torx screw (black) that move the lens up and down on the rail. Usually the lens is too high and requires adjustment.
  4. Take the lens off these 2 rails and take the black plastic cover off. Turn the lense upside-down and you'll find there are 2 screws (silver, phillips or torx) that you have to remove to take the upper little lens off.
  5. Then you'll see a larger lens that is usually very dirty (this lens is a mirror to light). If that's dirty, it will give a disk read error. You'll have to take the little electric board off that you see on the other side of the big lens-mirror. It's probably dirty too, so clean it. Alcohol should work OK for this task.
  6. The lens bottom has 2 + 2 screws. You move the upper "little" lens up-down-left-right (this may require a special screwdriver)
  7. The motor "rail" that moves the lens must be very clean and oiled and the 2 rails too.

Aperture diaphram on mamiya secor lens 80mm f/2.8


The lens has a lever marked A/M near the aperture ring. If the lever is in the 'A' position, the lens will stay wide open until you trip the control lever at the back of the lens next to the rear optics. In the 'M' setting, you can see the aperture move as you change the f-stop setting on the ring. Set the lens to anything but wide open and move the control lever with your finger. You should see that aperture move.

there actually is a little gear inside that moves the lens and since you already opened it make sure the gear is there and moves. LOTS of problems with these cameras....
