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's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Error 00


Always when an error occurs, switch off the camera. Wait till the memory access light stops burning or stops flashing (If it did)
Then remove the battery. This will be a signal to the camera, to start all over again, when the battery is placed back and the camera is switched on again.
In your case, the camera indicated an error with the lens, or the connection with the lens.
Carful remove the lens, as described in the manual. Check is all contacts are clean and intact and of course shiny. Just a spec of dust could be the culprit. Place the lens back and look and feel if it lock correct. Then try switching on the camera again.
If you are not sure the battery is charged completely, before placing it back, charge the battery.
Then reinsert the battery and hope the error does not come back. When the error comes back it is time to contact a service centre.

I cant use my camera it appers system error how can i fix this?


Please check if the lens can move free. If there is any obstruction, it will stop and the camera will give an error. Also never try to stop the lens from moving.
Start over again. Remove the battery, charge it. Place the battery and the memory card when you are sure the memory card is not in the locked position. Then close the battery door carefully, so the door is locked correct. Then switch on again.
If the error comes back, perhaps the lens is blocked inside (broken gear or something like that) you have to contact the service centre.

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.

When I turn on my camera, it comes up with "Lens error". What does that mean?


HI. One possible reason for this error is the camera has been switched on and the lens unit is prevented from extending itself. The camera will struggle for a second to extend the lens, then report the problem as a "lens error". I would start by Inspecting the lens for any obvious obstruction, then turn the camera off, then back on again. Usually, simply switching the camera Off and On again will correct this problem. If that doesn't correct the error, Remove and recharge and/or replace the battery. If the error does not clear up right away, leave the battery out of the camera overnight, and try again the next day. You are basically forcing the cameras micro board and chip sector into a reset mode when preforming this procedure.

  • NOTE_ If none of the procedures above produce positive results, I'm afraid that this unit will need to be sent to the manufacture for a serious repair detail, due to mechanical lens failure. There are no user serviceable parts on these units

Sony dsc-w50 when turned on it requests power off and on again only information i can find that there is internal memory eror


If camera shows 'power off and on' error message that means it has problem with lens mechanism, and lens assembly will be replaced with qualified camera tech.
Camera will show 'format error' in case of memory problem that can be solved by formatting/ replacing memory stick.
Thanks.

Panasonic DMC-FX35 error message


Sounds as if it has either received a knock, or foreign matter (grit etc) has got into the lens mechanism.

After inserting lens it keeps saying lens not attached


I would help to know the error message, but here is what I can tell you.

Having a "Lens error " message display on the camera's LCD display indicates a problem with the camera lens mechanism. This situation generally requires that the camera be sent to a Nikon Service Department for repair. Before doing this however, be sure to check these situations below:
  1. One possible reason for this error is if the camera is switched on and the lens unit is prevented from extending. The camera will struggle for a second to extend the lens, then report the problem. Inspect the lens for any obvious obstruction, then turn the camera off, then on again. Usually, simply switching the camera Off then On again is enough to correct this problem.
  2. Remove and recharge and/or replace the battery. If the error does not clear up right away, leave the battery out of the camera overnight, and try again the next day.
