Lens error on my camera

In most cases this isn't a mechanical problem, it's the component board that runs the auto-focus. This is a common issue, the only way to completely resolve it however is to have it repaired by the manufacturer.

As this was a common issue, many users have stated their camera was replaced even after the 1 year warranty had may want to check with the manufacturer to see if this is the case with yours as well.

Camera will not stay on. It comes on in green auto pic mode and turns off again immediately

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.
