Lens Error !
Follow the above steps:
Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in and turn the camera on.
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.
Insert the cameras AV cable, and turn the camera on in picture review
mode. Have no idea why this would work, except that quite a few people
have reported some success with it.
Place the camera flat on its back on the kitchen 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 cleaner.
we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in
conducting the fix. Take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the
intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. A lot
of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is
some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this
method, such as unseating ribbon cables.
Try forcing the lens. Many people have also reported success with this
method. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your
camera by using this method. Variations include pulling, pushing,
rotating or twisting on the lens barrel while hitting the power button.
Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens
barrel, and then pushing on the lens barrel side that has the largest
gap. While doing these, listen for a click that indicates that the lens
barrel guide pins 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.
