The camera sensor must have detected an obstruction, or at least the logic board did not get the message the lens is in its working position. Could be, because it is really not in the correct place, but also there could be something wrong with the detection logic. In both situations, the best you can do is resetting the camera, by removing the battery and memory card for a few moments. (while yu have the battery and memory card out, please check is all contacts on the battery and memory card are clean and shiny) and then reinsert both. Switch the camera on again. When the error returns, I suggest you contact a Fuji certified repair centre, or start saving for a new camera.

SOURCE: when i turn my camera on there is a small yellow

That is a camera shake warning. Use a steady base to support the camera when taking the picture or use the flash.

Finepix S8600 camera, when turning it on I get a warning screen 'turn camera off, remove obstruction or lens cap and turn on. Can't action, no obstruction


This may be because small particles of grit have entered the lens housing, preventing movement. It may be possible to dislodge them by holding the camera vertical with the lens pointing down and tapping the back of the camera firmly a couple of times. After that, while keeping the camera in this position, switch it ON and OFF a couple of times to try and loosen any foreign particles. You may have to repeat this procedure several more times before you achieve success.
Should this not work, then a trip to the repair facility is called for, I'm afraid.

My cannon finepix S4200 camera wont zoom in or out I also get message "turn of camera and remove lens cap or obstruction from lens" but no lens cap fitted and there doesnt appear to be any obstruction...


The sensor or logic board in the camera must be fooled, or one of them is defect.
When removing and reinserting the battery does not change this, contact a Canon certified repair centre and ask what it will cost to repair this error. Then decide if you want to spend that money for repair or as a start for a new camera.

What does remove obstruction mean


Is mirror in locked up position? In manual mode? Especially if the lens is irised down to a high f-stop.

What is the Meaning of turn the camera off remove the lens cap and turn the camera on'


Really it means what it says.
Switch of the camera, and switching it on again, will reset the program, like a cold boot from a computer. Perhaps the camera could not move the lens barrel and as a precaution it gave this warning. When you removed the lens cap, please check there is no mechanical obstruction on the lens. Then switch on again. When the error keeps coming back you should ask advice to a Nikon certified crevice centre close to you.

How do I re-set a 10.1megopixel c1033


Chances are something is blocking the lens. It could be a lens cap, or your finger, or even a grain of dust or sand.

Here's the best first course of action:
1. Turn off the camera
2. Blow sharply into the areas around the lens/lens cap.
3. Turn it on again and see if that resolves the problem. Be sure nothing is physically obstructing the lens. (No lens cap, no finger, etc.)
4. If blowing doesn't work, try using a can of compressed air like you would buy at an office supply store, and blow out the area around the lens and lens housing. Chances are, if nothing was obstructing the lens that you could see, it might be a bit of dust or sand. Even a little sand can totally screw up the lens and keep it from moving in or out.
5. If this doesn't work, you should take your camera to a camera shop and have it professionally inspected and cleaned. Check out how much this will cost, though, before you do -- it might not make sense to pay what they want to charge, versus just buying a new camera.

Lens obstructed- rem lens cap error kodak z990


"Lens obstructed, remove lens cap." This is the message the camera states. My camera does the same thing. It is refurbished. The camera was only used a couple of times and the problem started just as the 90 day warranty ran out. I suspect this is a common problem and these cameras should have been thrown away instead of selling them. It seems that it is not a " stuck lens problem".It seems to be an electronic problem rather then a mechanical one. Has anyone fixed this issue? Has anyone contacted Kodak for a price?

Kodak digital camera z990 lens obstructed remove lens cap


It seems that many people think that sending a camera back to the manufacturer is helpful. Most of us want help to fix it ourselves. If it is under warranty most know enough to send it back. If it is out of warranty the repair cost for most problems is more then it cost to replace it.

Keeps saying to turn off camera and won't take pictures


What the troubleshooting guide suggest is to turn off the camera and turn it back on which sound like what you have been doing. The cause of this generally points to a camera malfunction between the camera and lens. This makes me believe that either something is restricting the lens from moving like the lens cap is tethered to the camera and tight on the lens so it can't do it's "pre" view and goes into the shut down mode. If the lens has any restriction be it the lens cap, ever ready case or anything that is restricting the lens movement remove it and try it again. I have another theory which is completely opposite to anything even suggested and that is the camera can't read the SD card so goes into shut down mode. If you remove the SD card and check to make sure the "lock" switch is in the unlock position. I'll give you a diagram for this.
The little switch needs to be pushed forward towards the gold contacts.
