Lumix tz8 won't turn on


Are you saying that there's no electrical power at all? Or do you mean that the camera won't complete its startup sequence, and gives you an error? I'll assume the second first, as that is more common: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 are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.
And here's a 16 minute video summary of the info shown in the link. But note that the article link above goes into even greater detail than this video:

But if you really meant that the camera is not showing any electrical power at all, then see this.

Tip

Lens Error fix for Digital Camera


One of the mostcommon digital camera error messages has to do with a lens problem.Some cameras will just beep and not show any error message and otherswill have an error message on the LCD screen. Some camera's will try tostart, the lens will go out and then return back and shut down.Sometimes nothing at all will happen, but the lens is the reason whythe camera will not start up.


Different camera'smay give you different error codes. Some of the error codes will beE-18 for older Cannon camera's, ACCESS error for Sony, Zoom Error forFuji, lens error restart, or just plain lens error. These are themost common camera error messages, but your digital camera may have a different one.


There are manydifferent things that can cause the lens to give an error message.One of the most common causes is keeping the camera in a case or bag.The dust, grit, felt, and lint from the bag gets into the cameralenses and causes it to jam. The static electric from the camerarubbing the side of the case causes the dirt to be attracted to thelens, which makes the problem even worse. Also if your camera is in acase and the button gets pushed to turn the camera on, and the lenscannot extend it can cause the lens pins to come out of the track,causing focus problems and lens errors. Bottom line is that you areoften better off not keeping your camera in a case! It is saferwithout a case then with one.


The next problemthat many people encounter is that they drop or knock the camera withthe lens out. When this happens, the lens pins can come out of thetrack, and/or the lens can be knocked sideways, which will jam thelens as it tries to extend and/or focus and zoom. If you do drop orbang your camera against something, there is about a 50/50 chancethat it can be fixed. Many times with care the lens can be realigned,but in some cases the jarring or the realigning, will break somethinginternally, so there will be no fix for it.


If your digital camera hasa problem, you will have a couple of choices. You can try to fix ityourself, or you can try to find a camera repair shop that will fix it for you.Because of the type of problems that cause lens errors, the digital camerarepair will seldom be covered under the manufacturer warranty. Alsobe careful to get a quote from a digital camera repair shop before youauthorize the repair. Many times the repair price quoted will be morethen the replacement cost of the digital camera. If you do a search on theinternet for a camera repair shop, make sure to include any shipping andhandling costs in the repair price.


If you choose totry and repair the camera yourself then look for my tip - Steps toRepair a Digital Camera Lens.


This gives you thehow and why of your digital camera error message, and/or why your digitalcamera will/may not start up.

When we turn on our Sanyo VPC E1090 digital camera the lens does not appear to come out completely & we get an "lens error 0x0311" message on the screen then it turns off. WHAT IS WRONG!! ...


If lens does not appear to come out completely and camera gives error that means lens mechanism got broken internally and lens assembly will be replaced to solve the issue.
Lens replacement is not user level repair and local camera repair shop[ will do this job for you if camera is out of warranty.
Thanks.

What does FEE mean? The camera won't take a picture and I see that in the display of my Nikon N90S


FEE error message displayed on SLR camera LCD Description If the cameras LCD screen displays "FEE" in the area where the aperture is normally displayed, please ensure that the lens is attached to the camera correctly. This error message will appear if the lens is not attached correctly to the camera or if you are not using a CPU lens such as the Nikon AF or Nikkor P lenses. Alternatively, if the lens has an aperture ring, it may not be set to f22 (or the highest aperture number on the aperture ring - normally marked in orange). Select the aperture number marked in orange on the lens and lock it using the aperture locking switch to prevent this occurring again.

The FEE error message

1157b.gif
Set to F22, or the highest aperture number - normally marked in orange. Note the locking switch.
If the above did not resolve the problem and you still experence the the error display FEE, please contact your local Nikon office. Before doing so please also check the following.

1157d.gif That the EE servo coupling highlighted above on the lenses has not been broken. That the F-min switch highlighted above on the camera body has not been broken. If either of the two items above are broken please contact your local Nikon service center.

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.

Lens error message when turning power on


Did you drop this camera anytime in the near past , if so then it apparent that the barrel assy is off aligment , jammed or broken. Very common problem with dropped cases. If not then you have a sticky/defective motor/sensor which is not allwoing the barrel to complete it startup cycle. There is nothing much as user you can do to sort this problem out , instead take it to a camera reapir centre. best of luck
