The lens error is a known problem with Nikon. Nothing seems to work, tapping, holding the power and shutter down etc. I was told by Nikon to send the camera in for repair, sorry theres nothing else you can do . AJ

My fujifilm s1000 keeps showing "zoom error." I don't know what happend. It's like one day it's working, the next not. I have a family member graduating Friday and can't afford a new camera. I've taken out...


Hi.

If you try turning on the camera with the lens cap on, you may get zoom error. Ensure that you are removing the lens cap before turning on the camera.

If the autofocus ring is held while taking the picture, or operating the lens this will also cause the Zoom error message coming up.

If that is not the problem, then the lens has troubles extending. This may happen because of dust stuck in lens mechanism, or because of a mechanical fault concerning the lens.
Any cause preventing lens from full extention or retraction will trigger zoom error.

Here a basic manual in PDF format.

Camera wont turn on: lens error, restart camera


Hi there,

Your problem is common to that model and actually to most of camera models. Usually it has foreign materials interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. It's also possible that the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension which eventually damaged gears or other parts. You should also check if your battery has enough power to supply the lens mechanism, easy way to find out is to use a new charged or brand new battery.

If you are still under warranty, I suggest to bring you camera to the store or service center. If not then here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. I hope it will work for you.

Regards,

"lens error, restart camera"


I was facing the same issue and its working now after following
these steps:

Go to this site http://homepage.mac.com/jpelling/page0/page0.html it will tell you how to take apart your camera and clean out the gear that controls the lens. The instructions are for a different model but it works for the A460 as well. You will have one extra screw to remove on the bottom. Once the gear is free of grit, reassemble the camera and plug the av cable in. This will allow your camera to "reset" the lens by powering on without attempting to focus the lens.
Try this it will resolve the issue....

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

Wont turn on but light is blinking


Are there any error messages on the LCD display?

Will the camera lens stay out when the camera is turned on?

Can you still take a photo/flash/sound without seeing the photo?

If the camera will not turn on even with a fresh set of batteries it could have a system or lens error in the camera.

a possible lens jamb when closed and the green led on top comes on then shuts off after the lens attemps to extend but cant.

Lens error message Canon Powershot A550


Canon A550 and A560 have the same body and most of the internal parts, including lens assembly are the same. Canon won't sell individual parts within the lens assembly. There could be two possiblities. One is (unlikely) that the lens assembly components have been knocked off from their position. The other is that because of a knock, or dropping the camera, the gears in the gearbox of the lens assembly are broken. These gears are the same as the ones in A530/A540, and are available from ebay for $12.50 including shipping. Checkout my site for how to open up the camera and the lens assembly to replace these:

http://pkrobot.freehostia.com/MiscElectronics2.htm

For A550 and A560, if you take it to the professional repair shop, it might not be cost effective, since it might cost around $90. Canon does not sell gears, so they might have to replace the entire lens assembly. The new camera is available these days for around $140.
