Re: Lens

OK I know whats wrong with this one, because my cmaera did the same thing. The outside shutter in the lens opens, right? Well, the inside shutter is stuck. Its staying shut. Take the camera apart(or if you dont feel comfortable doing it yourself, take it to a expert)and tap the side gently, it should fix itslef like that. If not, its the same problme, but you'll have to take it in somewhere.

What does it mean when your camera lens is not working and the screens say, turn off the power and turn it on again ? What happen if the camera lens is moving but ther screens is not opening or showing...

I may not have enough information for this... how ever, let us try. And I am not sure which one you are talking about, maybe both at times?
Does the camera play back files correctly and can be seen on the LCD?
If the first, then some problem exists with the lens. This camera then needs repair.
If no screen on the LCD, then repair is recommended.

In both cases, it seems the camera is in need of repair.
Because this camera is a few years old, I recommend to sell it for parts and as is on a site such as Ebay.

Lens Error!

Hi onikaassing, A very common problem in all the brands "lens error". The remedy is that you have to replace the lens block assembly. Actueally the sled motor start malfunctioning, Contact nikon service centre maybe they have the component level repair facility which can reduce the repair cost. Thanks for using fixya.

Lens Error

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

Lens error,restart camera

My Camera: Canon PowerShot SD770 IS Digital Camera

Went to the beach yesterday, by the end of the night my camera gave me this error: "lens error, restart camera". The lens would no longer come out.

I figured sand got stuck within the lens, so I did the following:

1. Turn camera up-side-down (with lens facing down)
2. Gently tap the sides of the camera (to loosen particles in lens)
3. Turn camera on
4. The lens will eventually come out
5. Gently tap the sides of the lens
6. Turn camera off (continue tapping side of lens as it retracts)

I turned the camera on and off a couple of times to ensure I removed all sand particles from the camera.

Now the camera works...thank god.

Lens error

This lens is in need of repair, though contrary to what some of the people on this site will say, paying $150 for a lens repair is completely unnecessary.
Usually a problem like what you are having is just a realignment and cleaning of the lens and gears. This in itself is a relatively cheap repair ($50-$75) Sometimes however, the plastic housing covering the lens itself gets damaged, or the lens twists inside the housing, which many times can require purchasing a new lens (this will run $150 or so).

Camera lens comes out and goes back in when I turn it on.

Sounds like the lens can't get into the proper position. Any possibility of damage to the lens?
