Try a reset follow this:
Open the Battery/Memory card door and remove the memory card.
Remove the power source form the camera.
If powering the camera with batteries only, remove the batteries for approximately 15 seconds.
If using an optional HP AC power adapter only to power the camera, disconnect it from the camera for at least 15 seconds.
If using batteries and the HP AC power adapter, remove both for at least 15 seconds.
Reinsert the optional memory card.
Reinsert the batteries and/or reconnect the HP AC power adapter to the camera.
Close the Battery/Memory card door.
Hope that helps.......

Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on.
Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30 means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.
Fix #3: Insert the cameras AV cable, and turn the camera on in picture review mode. Have no idea why this would work, except that quite a few people have reported some success with it.
Fix #4: 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 autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
Fix #5: 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).
Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.
Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide pins that would cause a lens error.

The only fix I kow of is to take the camera apart and set the gears on the lens correctly. You are going to need a small set of phillips and stright screw drivers, and a soldering iron.The back comes off easy enough, the next thing it to remove the screws on the back of the main board. the screws on the top function board. and then unsolder the two tabs on the top of the main board that connects to the battery compartment. Be sure to unsolder the correct ones. Once this comes off the camera lens is pretty easy to figure out. Just take the motor and gear section apart and set it correctly. I have done a few that when I just turned the barrell of the lens, I heard a snap and it worked fine. You may have to take it apart. If you need more help contact me at cwradio73 at gmail.com

Your problems most likely came from it being dropped. The fix is time consuming but well worth it since this camera is a nice one to use. You are going to need a set of small screw drivers philips and straight. Also a soldering iron. Take the back off. Easy enough. Then remove the obvious screws you can see. Heat the iron up and remove the solder joints at the battery compartment. there are two and if you have taken all the screws out it will fall into your hand. Dont forget to remove the screws on the top board as well. If you turn the barrell on the lens you might hear a snap and that is a sign the lens has fallen back on to the track. If not take the screws out of the gear box and set the track on the barrell of the lens. This is not all that hard I have done several. Different cameras use different ways of getting to the motor drive. Most you dont have to unsolder, but with this one you do. I love this camera and it is worth the effort to fix. Write if you have problems
