Manually rotating sensor rotor inside camera and cleaning gear fixed the Canon "lens error" for me.

SOURCE: lens error

yes, this happened to me, what you have to do is "snap" the lens back in place, if it is bent anyway. if it is not bent and it says lens error, does it the lens come in and out? if not then it is bent if so then there is a hardware error in the switch and you will have to send it to a profesionall. :) hope i could be some help :)

SOURCE: Lens error, restart camera

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Crooked camera lens


Camera got dropped, lens got pushed in on one side? If you can straighten it yourself by pulling it out straight on that side, it might work perfectly afterwards.

NO OPEN THE LEN WHAT CAN I DO, THE CAMERA IS FALLEN AND THEN ONLY STAR UP AND APPEAR THE MESSAGE *LENS ERROR 16


Lens error 16 means the lens has popped out of its tracks internally. This happens if the lens is out when the camera is dropped. Most require a new lens. If the lens is crooked, it is possible to straighten it sometimes. See the picture.d40ff78.jpg
Attempting to straighten the lens can break it but rarely makes things worse.
If the lens is jammed in, not much can be done without a technician.

Camera dropped, lens won't retract or expand


You can buy a new A590 for under $110 these days, so the professional repair option may be out. 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 dropped my camera and the lens is crooked now and when i turn my camera on it sayslens error:126,1,0,-9


Usually a "lens error" is only going to be fixed by sending it into repairs or an authorized service center. I would contact the repairs department of your cameras manuacturer and they can tell you where to send it.

Error 18 Lens retraction problem


The lens mech has been damaged (likely by being dropped or bumped). If it is not VISIBLY crooked or twisted, odds are that you have a broken gear or other internal. The only fix is a new lens assembly, which tends to be rather expensive ($80-$200), just for the part.

Jammed lens


Hey latyrant,
If the lens visibly looks crooked then the lens is probably broken and needs to be repaired by an authorized service technician. One thing you could try is placing the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed up and holding the shutter button in, while doing this turn the camera on. Sometimes this will force the camera to try and focus before the camera can register the lens problem and sometimes it will force the lens back into alignment. If this doesn't work you could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they could send it out to get looked at by a technician. I will say that the cost of digital camera repairs often exceed the value of the product. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Dropped camera. lens open and crooked


Sorry to say you have broken the lens, replacement of the lens is the only practical repair and if you cant swap one yourself from a dead camera it would be beyond economical repair.
If you are adventurous you could buy a faulty one of ebay and swap the lens or if the faulty one has a broken screen or mode dial swap yours over to the faulty one..
there are a couple of "tricks" do getting this camera open drop me a line if you decide to proceed...

best of luck

Dropped camera and don't know if it is fixable


Generally speaking, there is nothing you can do to correct the problem other than to send the camera to the appropriate factory service center for correction of the error. Following the repair cost you should decide, whether it worth it.
