Try hard reset . Remove the batteries and insert new batteries . Sometimes this may work

Another chance is that lens is struck

* Carefully inspect around it for dirt or debris

* If you see any dirt or debris around the lens, use canned air to gently blow it away

* After removing dirt and debris, turn the camera on and off

This should work
Hope this helps .
If your problem still continues you need to take to service center .

Because the sensor is broken or damaged you need to replace it .

Thanks for using FIxya

My fx 200ri shows E1 & didnt respond


plese read your owner manual for to fix the error codes. God bless you
If you have a more serious digital camera problem and the camera gives you an error message, check your user guide and this list of camera error guides to try to fix the problem. Good luck with your efforts to troubleshoot camera problems!

Another trick to try clearing the lens error message is to press the power button at the same time you press the shutter button. This is a long shot, but it does work on occasion

Camera lens won't shut


This has to be THE most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with this problem include "E18 lens error" (older Canons), "ACCESS" error (Sony), "Zoom Error" (Fuji), "Lens Obstructed" (Kodak), "lens error, restart camera" or just "lens error" (nearly all camera makers lately use this variation). Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.

Getting error message "Turn of the camera, remove the camera lens and turn on the camera"


This is an error due to programming of the camera. The lens is either sticking or not open fully as it should causing the camera to think the lens isn't open at all. I would try to download an update for your camera's software or have it sent in and upgraded.

I got sand in the lens and now it won't autofocus! Is there a way I can clean it?


You can try to blow compressed air into the front of the lens assembly, hoping to dislodge the sand. If you try to take the camera apart, you will have to disassemble the whole thing just to get to the lens assembly, and then you will have to take it apart to clean it, and then reassemble it. Quite a job- which is why repair shops just replace the whole lens assembly with a good one when there's a problem. If you don't have any success with the compressed air trick, and decide to have it serviced, get an estimate first. Often the cost of repair exceeds that of a new camera, especially these days as the prices of cameras on sale can't be beat. Good luck, you might get lucky, hope so.

Powershot e1 says lens error, restart camera and won't work


Were you at the beach? If so, it more likely started when a single grain of sand clung to the side of the camera's lens barrel while it was being closed.

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's 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:

Lens Error - Restart Camera : Lens remains in extended position.


I had the same problem with the same camera. Ended up twisting the lens by hand back and forth while powering the camera on and off till the lens pins finally realined and let it close properly. Took alot of patience and care but has worked since. Usual cause of this problem is powering camera while the lens is blocked from extending, ie in a case, laying on its face etc.
