Re: The lens are stuck!

If you have tried to cure this, then buy a new camera, You will have caused further damage to fine moving parts- and a repair option will almost certainly cost more money and heart ache when you find you have spent money sending to a repair shop and paying for them to look and then telling you it cant be fixed.

Lens Stuck

If the lens is stuck out then you will find it is usually one of a few reasons.

1. Check the batteries. (obvious I know).
2. The camera has been dropped or knocked.
3. The camera has grit or dirt in the lens mechanism.

Providing the batteries are ok then 2 and 3 usually mean a professional repair. The lenses tend not to be something that the average home user can remove and take apart. The cost of repair also might be more than the camera value so you will need to find a good repair shop near you and get a quote.

My camera is saying 'lens error' whenever I try to turn it on, what do I do?

Well, I'm afraid this is exactly what's happening - there is a problem with the lens. If you haven't dropped your camera and the message just started occurring "on its own", then chances are that there is some dirt stuck in the lens mechanism. You might be lucky and get it to work by gently tapping the camera to shift the obstruction. Apart from this I'm not aware of any other way of fixing this short of dismantling the camera and stripping the lens mechanism (which unfortunately is a bit of a pain with this particular camera :(
Good luck,

"lens error, restart camera"

I was facing the same issue and its working now after following
these steps:

Go to this site it will tell you how to take apart your camera and clean out the gear that controls the lens. The instructions are for a different model but it works for the A460 as well. You will have one extra screw to remove on the bottom. Once the gear is free of grit, reassemble the camera and plug the av cable in. This will allow your camera to "reset" the lens by powering on without attempting to focus the lens.
Try this it will resolve the issue....

The lens due to some problems is not intialising ...... most commonly it may be dust particles getting stuck in the lens barrel ...... or the barrel itself is damaged ...... get it repaired from a repairman ..... as opening a lens is a difficult procedure ...and you may end up messing up the whole thing ......

S1050 Samsung crashed?

ok, i had a similar problem I had normal batteries in there... cheap ones... and accidentally set the battery type to NiMh in the camera settings... it wouldnt turn on after that. Make sure you try NiMh batteries in case that might be your problem. Another thing i have noticed (may be just my camera) is that it doesnt want to work if its cold....

Lens stuck open

I have to agree with one of the comments previously posted. I too had a Sony DCS-S700 and the lens was stuck open. Whenever I turned the camera on, the Sony Cybershot logo appeared and dissappeared, turning the camera off. I noticed the lens was crooked, so I moved it in the center direction and the camera worked again.
