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:

Camera lens does not retract and shows camera error #e45


It appears that the error code is due to your lens being stuck. In many small digital cameras this is caused by a drop or jar to the camera and the lens being knocked off of its tracks. Make sure your camera battery is fully charged. Power the camera off. With the camera is laying flat on its back on a table or other level surface, see if the space or gap around the lens is an even amount. If not, it is probably out of its guide track. Holding one hand cupped, take the camera, face down and lightly strike it into the cupped palm of the other hand. That should dislodge any sand or grit. Then, holding the camera in one hand, grasp the lens gently and apply a light pressure toward the side with the larger gap around the lens. Do not apply a lot of force. Do this gently. If you hear a light "click" the lens should be back in place. Try powering the camera on to test the results. If it still doesn't retract, power it back off and lightly rotate the lens back and forth with you hand. Do not apply a lot of force! Again, if you hear a click, the lens should be back on its tracks. Power it up to test it. If that doesn't do the trick you probably need to take it to a repair shop or replace the camera.

Zoom lens is stuck out position...won't retract. Power on button produces yellow flashing light on back of camera, then off again automatically after a few seconds. Any hope of getting lens operable...


Lens errors are quite 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.

You can try the following:
1. Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function fine.
2. Place the camera on it's back and look at the lens from its side. It may look slightly crooked. If this is the case, power up your camera and apply pressure gently to the side of the lens to center it. It should then extend fully.
3. [Try at your own risk] Try forcing the camera lens. Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if the camera was dropped while the lens was extended. Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a click as it pops back into place. If the lens is stuck at an angle, put the edge of the lens not the flat front, on the edge of a table and press the lens back towards the center. It will either click back in place and work or it will break off one of the three pins that ride in the grooves of the lens barrel. Try powering the camera back on.

Lens error, restart camera


Hi,

This error occured when lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting. When pressure is applied to the lens or the area surrounding the lens while handling the camera. The error may also be displayed due External shock or liquid, sand & dirt etc. enters the camera.

Avoid applying pressure to the lens and surrounding area:

1) Do not touch Lens while shooting.
2) Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case.

If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera OFF and then ON again then your device need to be repaired.

Have a nice day Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Camera suddenly began reading "lens error - restart camera" and lens will not retract. camera was not dropped and no foreign material was introduced to lens (as far as I know) please help! i love my camera...


Hi

This error may appear where the lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting such as, for example, when pressure is applied to the lens or the area surrounding the lens while handling the camera. The error may also be displayed if the lens unit/camera has been subjected to an external shock, or if a foreign substance (i.e. liquid, sand, dirt) enters the camera.
Solution
Check the following when you operate the camera to avoid applying pressure to the lens and surrounding area:
  • Hold the camera so that your fingers do not touch the lens unit when you are shooting.
  • Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case. Exercise caution to ensure that the camera does not accidentally power on while the camera is stored inside the case.
If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera off and then on again, or if the error code is displayed frequently, a camera malfunction may have occurred. Please do rate this solution as FixYa and revert for further assistance. Thanks

Lens stuck


I just wrote a warning about these "telescoping lens" cameras, You need to get the lens back on track. maybe steady pressure, applied to the back of the camera with the lens on a towel on a table to ensure it remains parallel to the camera body.

Lens Stuck


Same problem guys!!! LENS HAD GOT STUCK - ABOUT ONE THIRD OUT after a knock. After lots of playing, and tapping and batteries in and out tried the whole twisting and pulling thing whilst turning off and on.

After a few minutes it came free and whole lens popped out. I then had to twist the outer part of the lens to straighten that up and allow it to fully retract. Works a treat now!

PS Tried the Sony online chat support - useless!!!!
