I had the same problem and I fixed it with a spray of silicon oil on the lens barrels (between the two parts of the lens and between the camera and the lens, not over the lens glass!!!)

Another solution is to try to put the camera on with the lens directed on the air.

I faced the same problem.... googled the problem many a times....... only suggestion was to switch the camera on and off while shaking the camera..... i thought that was funny but .... nothing seemed to work for a long time...... i guess its a luck factor..... and one fine day.... out the blue everything came to normal while i was shaking the camera.... and it has been fine ever after........ but one would need lot of patience......

I have canon powershot A570 IS which was accidently dropped in sea water.Within a minutes time I removed all batteries and memory card.After about 15 days I inserted batteries to check its functon and...


According to the symptoms I feel the batteries are low. In this case the camera switches on, lens comes out, understands there is not enough battery power to proceed, retract the lens and switches off.
If the batteries are too low, the next time you switch it on, it will ask you to enter the date.
Just replace the batteries and see.
Let us know the result.
(If I were you, I wouldn't have let the camera dry itself when wet with salt water. When water evaporates, salt will be left on the surfaces, which might explain why the lens stuck the first time).
Wish you best of luck! And thanks for using FixYa!
(And vote me if you find this useful).

Tip

Sanyo digital camera showing lens error 1114 or 112


Hi.

If your Sanyo digital camera is not starting and you get lens error 112 or lens error 1114 prompted on display, that means that the lens is getting stuck, and cannot extend or retract fully. The controller board detects the error on startup, and shuts down after displaying the error message.
This errors usually happen because of dirt, or because the lens mechanis mis damaged in consequence of a shock.

If lens does not retract, try helping the lens back, without putting too much strenght, while you turn off the camera at he same time.
If the lens does not extend, try tapping softly the back of the camera to help lens out, while you turn off the camera at he same time.
If the camera had been exposed to sand or dust, try blowing canned air on the lens.

If this does not work, the lens assembly must be taken apart completely and re-assembed, and for that you need a camera repair shop.

Also call the number listed on the owners manual to get support from the manufacturer.

Camera will not switch on/off properly, and "E18" appears on the screen


Hi,


"E18"indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover in your camera .This error appears where the lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting .The error may also be displayed if the lens camera has been subjected to an external shock, or if a foreign substance (i.e. liquid, sand, dirt) enters the camera.Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the lens unit when you are shooting. Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case. Exercise caution to ensure that the camera does not accidentally power on while the camera is stored inside the case.If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera off and then on again, or if the error code is displayed frequently, a camera malfunction may have occurred and might require service from canon.Or else try pressing the power button on and held it down while extending the zoom lens. The lens will extend out and the camera will be freed from the error.

Thank you !!

Same problem had camea three years


Hi

This indicates an error that involves the lens unit or lens cover. This error may appear where the lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting such as, for example, when pressure is applied to the lens or the area surrounding the lens while handling the camera. The error may also be displayed if the lens unit/camera has been subjected to an external shock, or if a foreign substance (i.e. liquid, sand, dirt) enters the camera. You need to check the following when you operate the camera to avoid applying pressure to the lens and surrounding area:
  • Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the lens unit when you are shooting.
  • Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case. Exercise caution to ensure that the camera does not accidentally power on while the camera is stored inside the case.
If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera off and then on again, or if the error code is displayed frequently, a camera malfunction have occurred and the lens unit needs to be serviced.

Please do rate the solution and revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Lens error, restart camera


Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Lens not retracting


if the "!ZOOM ERROR" message is displayed on the digital camera, switch the camera off and on again 2 or 3 times.
If this does not clear the error, take the camera to your nearest FUJIFILM Service Station for testing and repairs.

Lens wont retract, makes noises, error code on blue screen D:1E 1A


I posted the same problem on the 15th June and in the meantime I have been playing around with the camera. After holding the camera upside down and gently tapping the back of it, the lens decided to work and retract back into the camera. Not the most technical advice I know but it seemed to work.
