    Lens Error - tried to take camera apart to fix it but you can't seem to do that. Next to flinging it as hard as I can on the ground to open it, what would be the next best solution?

You don't really need an operation manual to operate that camera... many of the operation manuals are just useless. You need to learn by trial and error. you are not going to loose anything or damage the camera..

Lens error


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Lens error message


If the pictures are on an SD card you can simply remove the card and use a card reader on your computer to copy the pictures off.
Stores will often also have picture printers that can read the SD card.

Camera lense stuck in


Gear box problem ( not so expensive to repair ) or lens impacted ( this type of problem can be sorted out only by replacing the entire lens unit and is often uneconomical ).
