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.

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.

Canon 450D, ERROR 99 only when flash pops up


Err 99 usually means your lens contacts are dirty either on the lens itself or on the camera.

To isolate the cause of the issue, do the following: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Remove the lens, battery, and CF card.
3. Allow the camera to sit without power for approximately 20 minutes.
4. Insert only a fully charged battery, and turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, the camera may be faulty and requires a service. If it does not, then: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Insert the CF card.
3. Turn on the camera.
4. Format the CF card in the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

Does the “ERR 99" message appear? If so, then the CF card is faulty. Try a different card. If the message does not appear: -
1. Turn off the camera.
2. Clean the gold contacts on the lens by GENTLY rubbing them with a pencil eraser or soft cloth. Keeping the camera face pointing down, also clean the gold contacts on the camera, being careful that you do not let any debris fall into the camera body.
3. Reattach your lens.
4. Turn on the camera.
5. Depress the shutter button as you would to take a picture.

If the “ERR 99" message only appears when one particular lens is attached, then that lens should be examined by a service technician.
If you see the “ERR 99" with a different Canon lens attached, then the camera is faulty and should be serviced.

Cannot reset camera


I was having the exact same problem. The screen would turn red and i would get an error message. I realized the lens lid stayed open even when the camera shut itself off. I hit the corner of the camera a few times (the side with the lens) until the lens lid shut. Then I tried to turn on the camera and it worked!

Lens Error - Cool Pix L6 - Camera unuseable


Dont know if this will help anyone. I had a lens error for ages. In my long lasting devotion to google serk I found that many equall contenders found that a strike with a soft book in different directiions solved the problem. I ended up beating the camera from all angles with the palm of my hand. But hey! it worked. 4 months later im looking for the cure to system error 2. If you can help wi that one.

Seems like a S/W issue...


This is a mechanic problem. The camera can't align the lents and proper focus them due to some sort of servomotors failure. Because of that, it tries to get a proper fix, but as it fails, it thinks that some object got the lents pushed or something like that and it askes you for a "reboot". You can't "hard boot" the camera, even a complete reset woun't help as this error is given by the camera's microcontroller circuitry (some sort of camera processor). The only fix can by given by an autorised service center. Even they may find out that you need the whole lens mechanism changed.
