The methods are listed in the order of risk of damaging your camera. Thus make sure you try them in the listed order. And remember, these fixes (especially #6 and 7) should only be considered for a camera that's out of warranty, who's cost of repair would be excessive, and would otherwise be considered for disposal if unrepaired:
Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on.
Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Fix #3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fixes 4, 5, and 7 as a means to provide extra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.

Fix #4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.

Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).

Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.

Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error

Minha cam digital Kodak aparece com código de

O problema ? que a lente se tornou presa no cano. Existem algumas solu??es DIY, voc? pode tentar, mas a probabilidade ? que voc? ter? de obt?-lo fixo por um profissional. Use estas por conta e risco, pois pode prejudicar ainda mais a c?mera:

Em primeiro lugar, tente conectar o adaptador de corrente alternada ou cabo USB.

Tente segurar o bot?o do obturador quando ligar a c?mera.

Olhe para a lente, e se alguns dos "c?rculos" a lente est? desalinhada ou n?o conc?ntrica e tente mexer-lo (mantendo lente da c?mera para baixo).

Tente gentilmente empurrando ou puxando a lente quando ela se estende, mas isso ? arriscado, pois pode causar a lente para escapar de seu sistema de orienta??o.

Outra maneira de fazer isso ? colocar a lente da c?mera sobre uma superf?cie dura e, em seguida, poder-se. Tenha certeza de usar um pano macio ou algo similar para n?o arranhar sua lente ou inv?lucro. Vamos empurrar a lente da c?mera para cima e para baixo algumas vezes e ?s vezes a resist?ncia do pequeno fornecida pela c?mera ? suficiente para fazer as coisas andarem novamente.

Tente acertar a c?mera perto da lente no corpo com o tecido mole na palma da sua m?o.

Fora isso, eu tomaria a c?mara a um centro de repara??o de uma avalia??o para ver se ele custaria mais do que a repara??o para substituir a c?mera.

En la pantalla de mi camara digital kodak c140 sale un error de lente error 102 por favor decearia que me expliquen por que salio este error y como solucionarlo les agradecere mis correo es...

Error de lente sinifica que hay un problema en la extension or retraccion de la lente. La placa base detecta que la lente no se puede mover y hay tienes el eror de lente.

Lo unico que se puede hacer es intentar ayudar suavemente el movimiento de la lente mientras que se encende o apaga la camera. Si esto no sirve, llama Kodak al numero que se encuentra en el manual de uso.

Aqui ay un artculo que trata el problema (en Ingles). Los codego son los de una camera Sanyo, la situacion es la misma que se encuentra en Kodac con error 102.

Hi. If your Sanyo digital camera is not starting and you get lens error 112 or lens error 1114 pro
