GE 7 megapixel A730 camera says lens error - Cameras

    Out of no where it just started saying 'Lens Error' when I turned it on. The only explanation the manual gives is that "the lens is probably stuck". What can I do to fix the problem?

Hi sadloserx:
I am inserting this from a previous post, since this seems to be the same problem.
Also lens problems have to be described in full to see what is wrong. The following will give you some idea as to what I am saying.

This camera is telling you that there is a problem with the lens, either in the tracking, mechanical, or electrical circuit.
Try this: If the lens extends at all... then pull on the lens or push in to try to reset the tracking of the lens.
If the lens does not extend at all and makes noise, then it has problems in the lens gearing or motor.
If the lens makes no noise at all and you get the error with the shut down, then more than likely there is nothing that can be done.

Try this at your own risk:
With the camera off, gently hit the camera on a padded (folded towel) cloth on a solid surface, using one of the corners. This may jar the internal parts enough to make the camera work again.
BY doing this, you do risk damaging the camera beyond repair, however, if you have a camera not working anyway, it may be worth it.
I have fixed two cameras in the past this way. However, nothing is guaranteed.

Find a repair shop and have it fixed. (These kinds of repairs can cost $150.00 or more). That will depend on your value and the age as well of the camera.
Sell it as is or for parts on a site such as Ebay.

Try this...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 (careful with this one).
