Try opening your camera up and reconnecting the connections that goes from the lens to the main board. There should be two ribbon cables. One of them is kinda tricky to get.

Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.

Try switching of the camera. Remove the lens and check if al contacts are in good order (no dents), clean and shiny if they look good to you, replace the lens and switch on the camera. If the error returns, the best thing you can do is is late the error, by placing another lens. If you don't have on. take the camera to a camera store and ask there if you can try another lens.
Then when you are sure where the error is, bring that part to the Nikon service centre, Or when it is the lens, buy a new one. The standard lens (or even the 18 - 105mm) are not that expensive.

Showing lens control error fuji finefix HS 30 exr

Does it say Lens control error, or does it say Focus error, turn off the camera and turn it on again?
The last can happen when you touch the lens barrel. When the lens does not retract when you shut down the camera, perhaps the battery is exhausted or the barrel got stuck.
Try to recharge the battery and start all over again. If nothing goes, try carefully to pull out the lens a little Less then one millimetre. or gently press it back a little. Be aware the camera is a very delicate piece of equipment, so don't use force, because that could damage the camera definitive.
In the manual, it says you should contact FujiFilm, when the error comes back after you switched off and on. So if nothing helps, that is the last option. Visit a repair shop from Fuji, or bring a visit to your dealer.

My camera says lens error and the lens is not coming out

While your camera is switched on, remove the battery. Wait for at least 30 seconds and reinstall the battery (make sure it´s charged). Switch on the camera. The lens should open and pop out.

My camera its a A830 / it tells me it has a lens error what should i do thank you :) when i push the power butten it tells me it has a lens error and then shuts off


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. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.

Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to auto focus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).

Thank you!

I have a problem with my camera c633 . i ant't start it . it' show me this message LENS ERROR 20e,1,0,0 and than it shut dawn .???????

Hi, the problem was inside of the lens unit and maybe the lens gear was damage.this is cause impact or excessive force to the said parts.
Try to open the camera if you can and check the gear inside of the lens if damage or need to be allign only. But if you cant do this you need to do is bring to service center and rquest for the estimate charge before they proceed to repair.

thank you

Lens error

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras.
There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:
