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 ...

The number one problem in digital cameras today is the lens, impact damage, dirt, sand, pop, water or even age can kill a lens. Once the lens is faulty your camera is usually history. The sad reality is cameras today are so cheap to buy that camera techs can no longer afford to repair when a new camera can be bought for less than $200.00.

Lens Error


Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced.

Lens stuck out


The lens probably has some dirt or grime stuck in the lens motor. If you can gently twist the lens back and forth, maybe with some air.
