This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Nikon 2000 lens error


The lens has dirt inside or there is a gear mesh problem, lens must be dis-assembled to see if it can be salvaged, probably not cost effective to repair.

Lens error


Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

Nikon d700 error message


Have you tried cleaning the contacts on the lens with alchoho and a cotton swab? The DX lens will have to tell the camera that it's not a full frame lens, and that happens through those contacts.

Post a comment if that won't work and we can go into more troubleshooting.

Lens error


yes, this happened to me, what you have to do is "snap" the lens back in place, if it is bent anyway. if it is not bent and it says lens error, does it the lens come in and out? if not then it is bent if so then there is a hardware error in the switch and you will have to send it to a profesionall. :) hope i could be some help :)

Lumix TZ3 keeps giving the same error message: "Please turn camera off and then on again"


sorry to tell you guys this but you definetly have lens faults, for you firwol i can say that you have a focus lens or image stabilizer fault, bob80 sand can definetly mess your lens around and is going to need a service. you can check the error codes. you need to do exactly what i say. turn camera off, mode switch to red camera selection, this has to be done quick, turn camera on holding the ois+ arrow up button, then quickly hold ois+menu+arrow left. post the error then i will tell you what is wrong.

My Camera won't turn on, it keeps saying lens era restart camera


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:

Lens error message Canon Powershot A550


Canon A550 and A560 have the same body and most of the internal parts, including lens assembly are the same. Canon won't sell individual parts within the lens assembly. There could be two possiblities. One is (unlikely) that the lens assembly components have been knocked off from their position. The other is that because of a knock, or dropping the camera, the gears in the gearbox of the lens assembly are broken. These gears are the same as the ones in A530/A540, and are available from ebay for $12.50 including shipping. Checkout my site for how to open up the camera and the lens assembly to replace these:

For A550 and A560, if you take it to the professional repair shop, it might not be cost effective, since it might cost around $90. Canon does not sell gears, so they might have to replace the entire lens assembly. The new camera is available these days for around $140.
