Most cameras will reset or restore to original settings if batteries are removed for at least one minute.

Clean, charge, and insert batteries again then restart the camera. Remove extra memory to eliminate this as a possible camera problem.

The secret to making digital cameras work better is having good electrical contacts between the batteries and the camera.

Electrical contacts in the camera and on the batteries must be cleaned properly. Digital cameras are high drain devices. Batteries may have a full charge, but will be viewed by the camera as low if electrical contacts are not really good.

Check out the source link for more helpful information on cleaning battery and camera contacts. Source(s):

Nighttime photos have white haze (like a light reflections and not focused

If you have a scratch on the front lens of your camera, this could cause this. Bad light conditions, won't help a camera to autofocus.

But every light that can enter the front lens from a certain angle, can cause flares. Called lens flares. On DSLRs you often see a lens hood that comes with the lens. It is wrong to think you only need them in bright sun light, and put them the wrong way around on your lens. Every light source can cause a flair. So even shooting in the dark, close to a light source a lens hood can help to avoid flares. If you don't have a lens hood, screen the light with your hand.
On Wikipedia, you can read more about lens flares.
I won't tell what brand and what model, but a expensive system camera got white orbs in the picture when shooting in certain (dark) light conditions. So don't think it is only your camera.

My nikon L18 coolpix camera shows a lens error when turned on...

If the lens is stuck at an angle, you can try and SNAP it back towards the center to straighten it out. If it's not at an angle then the lens needs to be replaced. Sorry I don't have better news than that.

E18 came up on the LCD screen. The camera will not operate.

E:18 is a standard "lens error" message for Canon cameras. If the lens is stuck at an angle, then sometimes you can SNAP it back towards center and make it work again. If it's not at an angle then you will need to replace the lens assembly. A good refurbished lens install is about $75, so you have to weigh that against buying a new camera for $200 or sending the camera to Canon to fix for $125.

Hope this helps.

Is the Wide angle converter (Nikon Wc-E68) compatible with the D3000?

No. The converter is intended for certain point&shoot cameras. It is designed to fit in front of the much smaller lenses. The D3000 has interchangeable lenses, so you can simply remove whatever lens you have on it and attach a wide-angle lens.

What does lens error mean

With all digital cameras this means that something is wrong with the lens system or lens itself.

The following may damage the lens even further, but if it is not working, may be worth a try.
Try to push or pull the lens as you turn on the camera.
Try to push the lens in with it off, if it appears to be out or at an angle.
Try: If the lens is out and at an angle you may try this... Put a soft folded cloth such as a towel on a table or bench flat on the surface. Now take the camera and "bump" the lens straight on to the cloth. This may un-stick a stuck lens.

If none of these things will help the problem, then you may consider to sell the camera for parts, repair or as is on such sites a Ebay.

Camera does not take pictures. Lens get stuck when turned on. Flash works sometimes. When turned on nothing happens sometimes Olympus is-200

hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage. thank u rate me!!!

My lens is stuck!!!

Your lens frame - that which moves out when the camera opens is probable bent. Looking down at it from the top and sides, does it look bent? By grasping is firmly but not hard try softly to bend the lens frame in the opposite direction, carefully.

Lens stuck

I just wrote a warning about these "telescoping lens" cameras, You need to get the lens back on track. maybe steady pressure, applied to the back of the camera with the lens on a towel on a table to ensure it remains parallel to the camera body.
