Hi there.
If you have sand in the lens then chances are that some moisture has got into it to.
This means you have to disassemble the camera to get it working again and takes plenty of patience as its not for the faint hearted.
If you don't want to do it yourself you can take it to a service center for repair.


Thanks for choosing FixYa!!

My problem is that the lens stays open, all the lights flash, I hear a very low set of tones and then it shuts off. I recharged the batter and tried all the fixes except taking it apart


Sounds like a stuck lens. Happens to V1253 / V1233 often. These lens can't stand dust, dirt or sand. The lens has to be taken apart and cleaned. It's not very easy, also it involves some soldering. I suggest you give it to a local repair shop (if you think it's worth it). I could offer you a repair, but I'm in Germany.
I have worked at a Kodak service center as a technician.

Sand in lens.


Are you sure its sand? Usually it is the plastic gears or parts of them in the lens that make noise. Unless its under warrenty , time for a new camera.

Nikon Coolpix Lens Error


Hi!
It could be focus system problem - most likely stuck. Could be sand or some dirt inside focus gears. They're very small for these lens which are used in many Nikon, Olympus, Casio and other cameras so even one small piece of sand can block the focus system. The only way to fix it to take the camera and lens apart and clean it. 

Sorry for the bad news. I repair cameras every day and you can trust me - I know what I'm talking about.

Lens Error


Sand is a killer to cameras. If sand becomes lodged in the lens bellows it will jam. I have never after thousands of repairs had any lasting success in trying to repair. When taking a camera around water and sand buy some sandwich bags to place camera into protects against water and sand.

Lens stuck


Yes it is fixable. if there is a friction in the movement of the lense cover blades this happens. If it is due to fine sand or dust try using a soft brush with a rubber pump fitted at the back so that it cen blow the sand off the camera. The problem is not that big for going for a new camera.

Cannon A70 lens stuck in middle causing it to keep powering off


The E18 error is 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.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty they're worth a try:

Too much fun... sand in the camera!


Best advise i can give you is to get an air canister at your local walmart or whatever store. use the tube and get in the little cracks with it, try to move the lens in or out a LITTLE while you spray so it loosens the sand enough for the spray to move it out.
