If no error code on the LCD screen, then you have either very weak batteries or a lens motor malfunction. One way to test the batteries is plug in your AC/DC source and try to turn on your camera again. If it works, then it was the batteries. If it still doesn't work, then its the lens motor. Time for repair.

D90 wont shoot in auto mode. gives me r21 error. Manual mode works fine


Did you switch the Focus-mode selector to MF?
It is the switch with number 8. Perhaps you are used to switching on the lens, but on the body is also a switch. Normaly used for the older AF lenses.

Tip

Lense sticking with good battery?


If you have a Kodak EasyShare V603 and have the lense sticking or not retracting all the way when you power down with a known good battery, this tip may save the day for you ...

Note I said MAY save the day, NOT "will" ... Nothing in life is certain ...

The extending/retracting lense assembly is very sensitive to dust or foreign material. If even the slightest amount of dust... pocket lint, anyone?... gets inside the camera housing in the area of the lense mechanism, the sticking can occur...

the solution is to undo the screws holding on the front half of the housing and get that shell out of the way... then run a clean q-tip around the outer rim of the lense assembly ...

filthy, isn't it? ... now repeat... once your q-tip comes up clean, blow away any residual dust. The jury is out on whether alcohol helps at all here ...

Repeat the procedure to clean the opening in the camera housing through which the lense extends as well ...

Reassemble the housing and you MIGHT be good to go ...

Of course, if you dropped the camera into the La Brea Tar Pits, don't expect a miracle, but this procedure can get rid of a surprising amount of dirt & dust that can build up inside the camera from carrying it in your pocket or purse ...

I DID say you need a known good battery, right ? oh, and it helps if it is fully charged too ...

Worked for me !

Lensis not coming out


If you turn it on in photo review mode the lense will not open so turn it on in photo capture mode or if dirt gets caught in the lense it would jamm it shut so try to clean it, or if the lense is dented it would jamm, or if at one time the lense tried to open indide a case or in a position where the lense was blocked the motor mioght have burned out or the gear that pushes the lense out might have broken, in the case of the last three answers then a specialist might be able to fix it , or you might need a new camera, (i reccomend a fujifilm)

Canon S200, e18 message lense will not open


Sadly I would deem that this camera has been dropped and thus an expensive repair. Failure to being dropped ( most people deny this) try turning camera off and hitting the face of the camera like a slap into open palm several timjes. This will release any dirt or jamb that may have caused the lens to stick. if after 20 or so of these slaps then you have no oprion but to discard it or send it for expensive repair. repair lanbour is about 90 anj hour plus parts. add it up as 2 hrs =minimum and maybe parts to the cost of a new one with warranty

Camera lense/power


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:

Error message 5e02


Turn on your camera, when the lense is opened, hold it till the blue screen appears, extend the lense to his maximum forcing it a little bit then when you turn off your camera, the noise won't be here. Turn on again your camera and hopes it works. I tried it on my camera, works well at the first try then again the error, i did it twice holding the lense when you turn it on, then it worked perfectly.
Hope it works for you.
P.S : my english isn't well but i hope it helps.

"lens error" on casio ex-z3


Sorry to say but a lens error actually is a problem that you cannot fix at home. When a lens error occurs, the motors inside that make the lens retract and protract were some how damaged, usually caused if the lens try coming out when you have it in your pocket or against a surface so it cant fully come out. You will have to send the camera in for service and you can do that by calling 1-800-706-2534, option 1.
