The movement of the lens is motor driven. When you turn the camera on, the lens moves. The error 12, error 14, and error 22 refer to control stages in the lens movement ( I think error 22 means the lens won't retract). The lens housing and gear mechanism in this camera is plastic. If there is dust, sand, or debris around the lens housing, it may bind the lens when it trys to extend or retract. By banging it, you might work the gears loose or dislodge whatever is binding the lens (same with the "canned air" blowing out the dust). We've purchased a bunch of these cameras for our electricians in the field. Several have come back with this problem. I've taken the case off, and torn the lens assembly apart, only to find the plastic gears have been "buggered up". It's an inexpensive camera. Try to clean around the lens, give it a few slaps, push/pull the lens.... but failing this fix, buy a new one. Good Luck!

E61:10 code flashing


I had an E61.00 error on my Sony DSC-t7 camera. I tried the bumping on hard surface . I bumped it bottom edge down at the lens end about five times with increasing hardness of bump and then turning off and on again after each try. After about five times E: 61.00 error had gone. I can hardly believe it.

It really did work.

Lens error


I've got the answers...

Problem: Lens error.
Symptom: Lens will not extend upon power up.
Cause: Lens is impeded while trying to extend.
This is usually caused by one of two circumstances. (1) The user dropped the camera while the lens was extended causing a mechanical failure. (2) The lens attempts to extend while in a pouch or pocket without the user's knowledge. This usually happens when the user is carrying the camera with the battery in. When/if the REC button or power button is pressed accidentally, the lens will attempt to extend but can't. This causes the main drive gears to be damaged.

Solution: Replace the main drive gear assembly. This should only be done by a qualified tech.
If you've experienced this you know exactly what I mean. This should clear up any notion that the "Lens Gods" have cursed you. Although this may have appeared to be a mystery, it's always caused by something!

Problem: Lens error.
Symptom: Lens extends, makes a few buzzing noises and retracts, resulting in "lens error" message.
Cause: This is caused by damage to the focus lens often by impact, or sand in the mechanism.
Solution:The focus lens gears either need to be replaced or the assembly completely rebuilt. Again, this should be done by a qualified tech. It's a very delicate process.

Problem: Aperture unit failure
Symptom: images appear to be washed out, over exposed and often have horizontal lines through them.
Cause:The aperture unit is either stuck, damaged or not receiving the proper electrical signal to activate. The result is that the aperture remains open after the picture is taken and CCD is over exposed.
Solution:Completely rebuild the aperture unit, which requires complete lens dis-assembly and rebuild. Again, this should be done by a qualified tech. It's a VERY delicate process.

Hope this helps.

My fuji S1500 has a stuck lens. It gives me a ''zoom error'' message and won't let me do anything.


This is a common problem. The lens assembly has a lot of tiny gears that drive the lens in and out. When it gets bumped or dropped with the lens extended, or the lens is obstructed from opening, something in the assembly can get jammed, broken, or out of place. Here is a webpage that describes things you can try before you decide to repair it or not. Sometimes it's just dirt or sand that needs to be blown out with compressed air. http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
See if this helps. Last resort, repair. Make sure you get an estimate first, they can be pricey to repair.

1.8L stumbles when hit bumps in road. Messed


Wow, this kind of a problem can drive ya nuts. There are 2 different engines for this car, one is a model 4A-FE and the other is a 7A-FE. The problem sounds like a coil breakdown..I know it sounds nuts because it happens when you hit a bump, but it could be coincidental to a coil breaking down when under load. You will need a decent Ohm Meter to do the following. Check the coil primary resistance [4A-FE & 7A-FE both = 1.11 - 1.75 ohms], then check the secondary resistance [4A-FE & 7A-FE both = 9.0 - 15.7 kilohms]. If either of these values is out of spec, the coil will need to be replaced. If everything is OK, next check the air gap between the signal rotor and the pick up coil projection (CAUTION; use a non-ferrous feeler gauge..ie: paper, brass or plastic). For a 4A-FE and a 7A-FE engine it should be .008 - .0016 in. If this air gap is not correct you have to replace the distributor housing. I hope that this helps to find / fix, or eliminate the distributor. If all this is OK check the lead wire from the distributor...it could have a broken wire inside of the plastic cover. If still no luck, write back and we'll try again.

Broken lens


Had a broken lens as well. As you're probably aware it's not really a lens but a protector like a watch crystal. So I went to a jeweler who said, "Oh I don't know, it's not a watch. Bla bla bla." I said I'm not going to hold you accountable. He said fine. He fixed it easily. $20.

Sony DCR-DVD403 camcorder - picture won't focus. E:61:10 error.


E61:10 is a lens error code. You have a bad lens unit, but sometimes they can be fixed. The focus and zoom motor worm drives on the zoom lens jam when they get dropped. If your really really carfull you can free them up and fix the lens. Thereis a plastic claw that rides along the worm drive shaft that can get jamed. I've fixed thousands of these but i'm a guru. It can be tricky.

Error system MF00C


Just solved this problem on my Dimage G530. An earlier time the lens (inner part) was cocked to one side after a small drop. Pulling it back straight, out of the outer part, fixed it and the lens closed.

Then just this past trip, the lens was not retracting with the MF00C error and the lens looked straight. It had opened in a pocket and gotten bumped. I had even taken the case off but that did not offer any insight into fixing the problem. (They certainly cram a lot into the case). I was about to give up and just buy a new camera or was going to inquire at vistek to see how much it would cost to have it looked at this Saturday because I really like the camera. Anyway, to make a long story short. I decided to pull hard on the inner part to pull it out - basically try to cock it to one side then the other. The lens popped out to it normal position and now everything works fine. So it appears that if bumped the lens goes to a lock position to prevent any damage to the drive mechanism.

Hope this helps someone else with this problem.

Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera Lens Error


Not really, it sounds like the lens has been bumped while it was extended. Unfortunately, the "buzz" you hear is the gears stripping one another. The only fix is to have the lens assembly replaced, which usually costs upwards of $200. I see this problem at least 3 times a week in my shop.
