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:

My rebel T1i won't take pictures on AF


If you have a specific zoom lens on and it will take shots in MF manual focus but wont in AF auto focus you could have a broken ribbon connector in the lens. Try with another zoom lens if you get the same problem it could be the camera. If it works OK then the ribbon in the affected lens may need replacing.

I've dropped my Canon Power Shot SD960 IS with the lens out, and now the outer lens is tilted at an angle and wedged tight and the barrel of the zoom will not retract. I've tried turning it off and on,...


Try this first, power off and gently push the lens barrel sideways - not back in!, If the barrel and the lens move slightly, you will get it working after some more manipulation in the same way. If it does not budge, sorry to mention this but your camera sustained more damage and you cannot do do much on your own.

The zoom lens won't close. It says to restart computer, but won't do anything when I try to turn it on. It's a canon power shot SX100 IS


The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

No picture and lens does not retract


Well some cameras has features that does not use the LCD screen of the camera, because to save battery power or to get better shots with the focus ring.

You can just use the area where you focus your eye to aim and shoot the object of image.

Try to enabled the LCD screen feature.

The Zoom Lens Wiggles 3 times because it is programmed to zoom at the standard zoom size, this is totaly normal for camera in digital and analog types.
