SOURCE: Zoom shutter wont extend fully

the same thing happened to me. I took my camera apart - just removing the case. I then operated my camera and it became "unstuck". now it works just fine. I put the case back on and all is just as before.

SOURCE: lens open/close problem

I have two of these cameras for at work. Both have this problem. If you hold the power key and repeatedly press the top key (one that shoots the picture) or hold the power key and then press and hold the shot key the camera is forced to take a picture. The camera seems to be ok then. There is no damage to the lens, as the pictures and quality are the same. It is definitly a design flaw, and/or software issue. Good Luck, and keep trying untill it fixes itself.

SOURCE: Casio EXILIM camera lens will not extend fully!!!

It's the focus lens gears. The often times get knocked out of alignment by an impact, or debris gets in there. This can be fixed, but Casio won't help. Hint...google my username. ;)

SOURCE: lens error

This is the lens focus gears. They are either knocked out of alignment, or debris has jammed them. The good news is it can be fixed....Casio most likely won't help. Hint...google my user name.

SOURCE: When I turn on the camera the lens comes out then

Possible broken spring mount in lens. This spring holds the focus lens. I had the same problem on an EX S600 and was able to fix it by taking the lens assembly out and taking it apart and making a spring mount out of a small piece of wire and glueing it in. This is not an easy job as everything is very tiny. It takes time and patience. Seems the camera tries to autofocus but can't because the spring is not connected. It then just shuts off.

Lens error


I've got the answers...

Problem: Lens error.
Symptom: Lens will not extend upon power up.
Cause: Lens is impeded while trying to extend.
This is usually caused by one of two circumstances. (1) The user dropped the camera while the lens was extended causing a mechanical failure. (2) The lens attempts to extend while in a pouch or pocket without the user's knowledge. This usually happens when the user is carrying the camera with the battery in. When/if the REC button or power button is pressed accidentally, the lens will attempt to extend but can't. This causes the main drive gears to be damaged.

Solution: Replace the main drive gear assembly. This should only be done by a qualified tech.
If you've experienced this you know exactly what I mean. This should clear up any notion that the "Lens Gods" have cursed you. Although this may have appeared to be a mystery, it's always caused by something!

Problem: Lens error.
Symptom: Lens extends, makes a few buzzing noises and retracts, resulting in "lens error" message.
Cause: This is caused by damage to the focus lens often by impact, or sand in the mechanism.
Solution:The focus lens gears either need to be replaced or the assembly completely rebuilt. Again, this should be done by a qualified tech. It's a very delicate process.

Problem: Aperture unit failure
Symptom: images appear to be washed out, over exposed and often have horizontal lines through them.
Cause:The aperture unit is either stuck, damaged or not receiving the proper electrical signal to activate. The result is that the aperture remains open after the picture is taken and CCD is over exposed.
Solution:Completely rebuild the aperture unit, which requires complete lens dis-assembly and rebuild. Again, this should be done by a qualified tech. It's a VERY delicate process.

Hope this helps.

I bought my camera 6-7 months ago. Now when I try to take pictures the lens comes out but I can't take a picture. and then a Lens Error message shows up on my screen and the lens closes. I can view...


Leaving the camera on and putting it where pressure is applied on the extended lens will damage the gears driving the lens mechanism in and out.There fore the problem was due to a broken gear mechanism.You need to bring it to a service/repair shop, because there are no owner serviceable parts inside and which the service guy has.If you camera is under warranty(usually 1 year) return it under the warranty and get a replacement.

Lens error, restart camera message

E18 error on Canon ixus40 - lens stuck


The E18 error is an error message on Canon digital cameras. The E18 error occurs when anything prevents the zoom lens from properly extending or retracting.[1] The error has become notorious in the Canon user community as it can completely disable the camera, requiring expensive repairs.
A quick internet search for "E18" + "canon" quickly reveals hundreds of similar complaints.
ConsumerAffairs.com reports that the "lens has a feature called bellows claw, which is a gear that physically extends and retracts the lens. A piece that holds the lens, the barrier plate, is not large enough and can sometimes cause the bellows claw to malfunction, resulting in a stuck lens". The result is a black screen that only contains the error message, E18. Another problem mentioned on the site blames a sticky iris in the lens, caused by grease entering inside from the microphones built into the lens. The buildup freezes up the ability of the lens to open.
