    Recharging the battery with proper charger has not closed the lens in my case. Cannot take pics and there are no icons on screen. Lens stays out when battery removed (will not switch off on power button). When switched on lens pops in then gets stuck out again.

For lens stuck out/camera frozen, try power up with mem card out. Worked for me.

I had the same problem - and wondered if if might be that the battery didn't have enough 'grunt' to close the lense - so I am charging it via the actual charger (rather than through the computer) and sure enough, I turned it on and then off, and the lense closed. The green light comes on when I plug the camera into the computer to download photos, and I thought this was therefore charging the battery, but maybe it doesn't charge it properly. Anyway, my lense is now closed and the battery is still charging (light is still red). Good luck.

My lens seems to be stuck

The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage.

thank u rate me!!!

My l200 camara lens is stuck

huSh now :( I remember my former camera.. XD

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interferingwith the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped withthe lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens hadbeen blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with thelens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seemto work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is outof warranty, they're worth a try:

hope this will help ya out
