    I have this same issue, my camera isn't very old, i got it last december as a matter of fact. And for some reason now, i turn it on for playback mode. and it shows "Lens Error: 22" but then i try to change it back to take a photo it shows Lens Error: 12 then Lens Error: 25. and shuts itself off.

    I have a fully charged battery inside so i dont know why this is happening.

    My camera is a pink sanyo vpc-e760

Dear sir,

this happens when the clearance for the lense mechanism to open and close is being insufficient due to -small bits of sand or lint that may become get trapped in the mechanism which is commom while taking photos in open dust spaces.

It is advised to take the camera to a camera repair shop and have it disassembled and cleaned,if delayed the problem gets complicated

thnk you..take care

HI there try to reset the camera from menu & then setting option. After that turnoff & again turn on . Now try for click an image. If you face the same problem then the error message show is the right cause. Its mena the lens guide pin is damaged or dislocate. Replace or repair that . Thanks & waiting for your feedback,

Broken Lense

try these:-
  • connect it to pc and on it
  • vaccum the barrel of lens
  • changing mem. card and batt. for 2min.
  • shake it.
  • on and off in different positions
  • hit the part near lens softly with palm (trust me this made mine work)

Lens error 22 or 25

This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

Lens Errors 17 & 27 on Sanyo VPC-E760

My camera was showing lens error 12&25 and then shutting off. I tried gently trying to twist and pull the furthest out part of the lens and it popped back into place easily. It made a noise when it did this, and then i turned the camera off, and the lens went back in!! Completely fixed now!!

My sanyo camera is not working

Well maybe I can solve this..... My lens would not retract and showed two error messages. Tried a number of tricks that have been recommended on this site to no avail. Ultimately what worked for me was pushing quite hard on the barrel of the lens trying to force it back in ( yeah i know, sounds extreme but did'n't think it could make the situation any worse ). The lens remained in the locked out position not moving in spite of the fact that I pushed it fairly hard. When I turned it on the lens retracted and it appears to be fully recovered from whatever was ailing it. Hope this works for you.
