Go to http://www.precisioncamera.com. It'll cost you some $$ but if you like your camera and it's not old or whatever you might want to consider it.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

This lens is probably ruined anyway, before you began your DIY attempts. Take it to a repair facility, but be prepared for a hefty bill, even if they will countenance attempting to repair it.

Crack on camera lense


There isn't really anything you can do to fix a crack on the camera lens unless you are able to replace the glass or send it in to be fixed/replaced.

Broke lense


that depends on if you want to spend more than the camera is worth. The labor involved in replacing a lens would probably buy you a new camera. This is difficult because it is not just one lens, it is a series of lenses, which have to be removed from the camera, and then calibrated to make sure that, for instance, they focus properly in all zoom ranges. This is a very time consuming job, that I would only consider for a $1000+ Zeiss lens for an SLR.

When i turn on the camera the lens wont pop open even when the battery is fully charged.... i was taking pictures and it working fine turn the camera off and on again then the lens wont open anymore? i can...


The problem is
1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of the lense. After it was retracted fully in, it prevents the camera from opening again. When you turn it on, if it opens a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard and let go a few times. If it opened, clear the outside of the lense. Your camera should be back to normal.
2- If you droped the camera, you probably damaged or dislocated a mechanical part of the lense. You may have to take out the lense by unscrewing it and inspect it for damged parts or disconnected cable. Make sure clean the lense and test it by moving it in and out a few times, before puting it back on the camera.

Good luck!!!!!!!

I droped my camera and when i turn it on it says lens error cause the lense is stuck and wont go in or out more


The one thing these cameras cannot stand is being dropped. They are very fragile, and it is rare indeed to find a repair station to fix them. I have a box full of dropped camera here, and I only use them for spare parts. Sorry about this, I understand your disappointment

I droped my camera on the grond and it wont turn on.it fell the side of the lens


Theres a very good chance you are going to have it repaired by a Camera Repair person. I would really need to know the brand and model.
If it is a canon then it will most def. need a new lens assembly. they have metal pins which guide the lens and when they are droped the pins break out of place.
If it is a Nikon or Sony or Casio alot of times I have been able to push the lens straight and it will re-align itself and work perfect again. But that said I wouldnt be too forceful unless the camera is not worth fixing. In that case you really arnt risking anything other than the possibility of fixing it.

Broken Canon camera


Take it to a camera repair shop to get a quote (the camera should be able to be sent to a repairer through any camera retailer).

When you have the quote - decide whether it is more economical to repair or replace.

Good luck.
