When turned on screen reads "lens error" and the camera struggles to open the lens. It won't open the screen says error and only way to turn off camera is to pull the battery out.


does the lens seem stuck, does it not extend or retract properly? Try to unstick the lens by gently pushing it in or pulling it out a little bit. IF that fails, the gears are too misaligned to repair it without opening it.

If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that replace them such as camera lens repairs.

If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.

I use thais lense on a cannon rebel xti and it takes black pic


Error 99 is one irritant in many Canon SLRs. In general, it means there is some problem with the contacts. So try cleaning the electrical contacts of the body and lens with a pencil eraser.Please take care to hold the camera upside down while doing this so that the residue does not fall inside. Also take out the battery and clean the contacts. Now re-attach everything and try taking the image. Also check if your lens has an aperture ring and aperture lock. If so, lock the aperture ring at the minimum aperture. If these do not solve the problem, try updating the firmware to the latest one.

The screen reads "lens error, restart camera. I can not get the lens to retract. I can not get the power to stay on. The cannon screen shows up momentairly - but fades to black and the message appears.


remove the battery, let it sit for at least 2 hours, then put it back. put the batteries back, then gentle push the lens sideways to free its stuck part. if the error still occurs and the lens is not retracting, consult the warranty for the device as the lens assembly gears may be at fault.

When turning on the camera it shows 'Lens error restart camera'


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

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

My camera says "read error" when trying to view pics


You might as well replace the camera, they do not fix these. If you send it in to Fuji you get an exchange camera from Fuji, the cost is fairly high
