"lens error" will only be fixed by sending into repairs. 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 2. Tell them you have a lens error and they will tell you where to send it.

SOURCE: Camera won't turn on - makes strange sound

This is a very common issue with digital camera on either the lens gears have to be replaced or the lens barrel need replacing. I rebuild these lenses all the time for 75.00 plus shipping and the turn around is normally less then a week. if you still need help fell free to contact me at mike@digitalcamrepair.com

SOURCE: Lens error causing camera to not work, HELP!!!

I just had the exact same problem on a friend's Exilim EX-Z75. Since it was useless as is, I was asked to investigate. It turned out to be a mechanical problem in the lense. I'm not too sure if it was a misalignment of the servo motor or if a gear popped out of a guide hole. In any case, if your lense goes in and out as it normally does, the problem is not in the main motor, but in a smaller internal secondary motor that adjusts the focus. Only try this if you are comfortable working with small tools and have plenty of patience. Took me about 3 hours start to finish. Warning: there is a capacitor that can hold a good enough charge to give you a jolt, possibly causing you to drop or damage the camera beyond repair, or short out your pacemaker. Keep your hands clean and avoid touching the circuit board and lense and display surfaces. Just in case you do get the camera working. Cycle the power button until the lense retracts completely. Remove the battery. Remove the case screws (6 on the bottom and 8 on the sides) and carefully remove from internal camera. The lense assembly is held in by some soft spongy spacers and a clip on the bottom corner of the lens compartment. Push the clip and the lense assembly should flip up revealing the back of the lense. Be careful to not put too much tension on the flexible circuit board. The CCD (that captures the picture) in the middle is held on by two screws. Remove that first letting it sit in the lense compartment. Then there is a circular plate that will reveal the focusing motor and gears. Remove the 6 screws and carefully remove the plate. There is a small motor and 3 gears that will be exposed. The center one might pop out. If it does, the small gear on the dual gear assembly faces down. You should be able to pick up the center focus unit high enough to make sure that the focus gears and rods are properly lined up in their guide holes and check to make sure none of them are stripped or out of alignment. The focus rods should be paralell to one another on the side of the focus unit. This is what I believe is causing the lense error problem. I would suggest after checking the alignment that you manually turn the gears so that the lens is all the way up. Turn the brass gear on the motor to make sure that all the gears are turning and moving the focus lense. If you think you have everything aligned properly, it's time to re-assemble the camera. Once you have the back plate and CCD put together, you could try to put the battery back and power up. If everything is ok, you should see a picture on the display and be able to take a picture. (Watch out for that capacitor.) If not, you might want to take it apart and recheck the alignment of the focus gears again. I had to do it twiceeven though it looked ok the first time. Remember, anything not lined up properly in there will cause the camera to malfunction. You should also have a greater appreciation for how sensitive a camera can be. DON'T DROP IT! Good Luck. Phil

SOURCE: casio ex-z77/ lens error

you might have pushed the lens into the barrel. small lens barrel has 3 metal pins that ride inside the larger lens barrel as it twists. Pushing it sometimes cracks the plastic holding these 3 pins in. one way to fix it is to carefully disassemble the entire lens barrel. be careful...sometimes a part just snaps, or is already snapped. The easiest way would be to replace the lens assembly with a good one you can get from another camera like this. There are no spare parts for cams like this so you can try to get another cam that has a different damage other than the lens barrel.

SOURCE: Casio EX-Z55 wont turn on after lens error

what i did for this was, remove the memory card, charge the battery fully, once fully charged, hold the on button and push very lightly down on the lens. had to do it twice to get it right for me. once it was fully in i shut it off and pulled the battery out for a few minutes.
do not push the lens in to hard, it will crack or get out of alignment.

hope this helped it fixed it for me

Casio Exilim EX-Z60 won't turn on


I have this exact same problem with my camera. My problem wasn't with the lens or the battery, but the camera's connection to the battery. When I pushed the batter all the way in, I was able to turn the camera on. Right now, I have a tiny folded up peice of paper inside, pushing the battery up more inside. This is my quick fix since I am going to a concert!! If you are in a pinch, try this.

Does ur camera ever say "lens error"? It sounds like what I typically hear as a lens error and the only way to fix that is to send it into repairs.

Lens issue with my Casio EX-Z50


I don't believe a "lens error" can be fixed at home. That is something that is going to have to be sent in. Sometimes if repairing the camera costs more than what it's worth Casio will offer you a trade up to a different model. Call the repairs dept and ask them about that program. Their number is 800-706-2534 and keep choosing option 1.

try taking your memory card out and then replacing the battery to see if you can get it to power on and get your lens to go back in. If that doesn't work you will probably have to send it in for repair.
