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:

I have a Canon IXUS970IS and the lens is stuck 3/4 out. I do not know how it happened as I loaned the camera out and it came back like this. I am told it just happened. There is no evidence that the...


I will say with 95% certainty the camera was dropped while the lens was extended. It does not take much of an impact to make the Canon lenses lock up, a very small drop, or even banging the lens into a door or something while it is extended will do this. It happened to my Canon, and two other friends' Canon cameras as well! Googling the issue also shows how common this is. I had my camera hanging around my neck and merely bumped my extended lens while opening a door. The gears inside are SO fine, and it skips just one tooth and it will fail. It sucks.
Sending the camera in to Canon for repair seems to be the only option, since you already tried gently push/pull/twist of the lens while it tries to retract. That worked for one friend, I sent mine into Canon for $50 repair.
Sorry.

If you hear a noise from the lens when you try to take picture or During turn on/off time then it's a lens guide pin problem OR Somehow its jammed or damaged. It's happens when the camera pressed or drop down during turn on mode or long time not use.

For the solution you need to follow the steps.

1. Turn off the camera and remove the memory card and clean the external body of the camera and make sure in place of the lens there is no dust or damaged sign.

2. Now turn on the camera without memory card & make sure the battery are fully charged.

3. If the lens not moving then give a little shake or thrust by hand ( carefully very slow) and then wait for a moment. If no changes then turn on the camera and give a little twist an anti clock side and leave for few second. It is risky ( Do it slowly at your own risk)

4. If nothing change then reset the camera setting from the menu option.


After following all steps, if the camera does not start working then you need to visit service center for replacing the Lens or Repairing. If you have any more questions ask me I fell happy to answer your question. Thank you.

Sony cybershot dsc-w290 after a recent dropping of the camera when we turned it back on we get this message "turn the power off and on again" same thing happens each time.


I'm sorry that the Camera is displaying the error message. "TURN THE POWER OFF AND ON AGAIN" displays on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset. Please follow the below steps to perform a power reset.



·Turn off the camera.
·Remove the battery pack.
·Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
·Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
·Reinsert the battery pack.
·Turn on the camera.

Also try initializing the Cameraif you're able to access the Menu items on the Camera. The Initialize option will be available underSetup or Main settings Sub Menus.
If the issue persists again, service is required. Please click hear to locate the service center near your area.

Thanks for understanding. Please let me know if your require any clarifications.

My digicam lens keeps on moving... coming in and coming out and the screen says "ACCES"


Hi,

The ACCESS error message displays when there is an internal malfunction or a malfunction with the Lens. This may also appear when accessing the Memory Stick for reading or writing the data. If the Lens is moving in and out then follow the steps mentioned below. The error message normally displays with the issue with the Lens. Try the following steps to check if the issue can be resolved.
Try power resetting the Camera.
Turn off the Camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 15 seconds.
Then, allow the Camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Re-insert the battery pack and check if the Lens retracts.
You can also try resetting the Camera back to factory default. To reset the Camera back to factory default, select the INITIALIZE option from the Setup 1 Menu of the Camera to OK. (Menu-->Setup-->Setup 1-->Initialize-->OK.)

This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for using FixYa

Err message appears on the display of my D80.


This may be due to the aperture ring in your lens. Try the following:

1. Turn off your camera
2. Move the aperture ring clockwise then lock
3. Turn on your camera and try again.

If this does not work, do the same thing again but turn the aperture ring counter-clockwise.

Error C:13:10, displays ''access'', ''turn the power off and on agai


Lens jams can happen without dropping the camera. The lens motor is bad, or a grain of sand has got stuck in one of the lens cogs. Either way will need lens repair/replacement.

You have a jammed lens error the lens has to be repaired or replaced. You dont have to drop the camera for this to occur it can happen when ever the camera is in your pocket or purse. it accidently gets turned on and when the lens is coming out it is obstructed and strips the little plactic gears in the lens.
