This is not a user solvable problem. One thing that should not be done is to turn on the camera when it has been dropped in dirt, sand or water. This will, in your case, grind the dirt around and parts try to move and contaminate additional parts of the camera. It's only worse if water is involved as this will likely cause shorts in electrical areas.
Take the camera to a repair shop and get their opinion on whether it is fixable and if so what they estimate the cost to be. Sometimes it's cheaper to buy a new or used camera.

Beach dust dropped in beach.


Cameras and beaches don\'t do well at all. The most important thing is to remove as much sand as possible without scratching any part of the camera. I\'d suggest to not wipe it at all, but take it home and try to vacuum the sand and dust off. It can get wedged in the drive mechanism for the lens focusing and will stop the camera from going through its normal initialization cycle. Check around the edges of where the lens moves in and out for sand, and try to suck it out.

I dropped my mx1063 and now the lens won't retract all the way, and when I try to turn it on it starts to make the chime sound, but then just shuts right off again. Is there some sort of quick fix for...


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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Lens stuck. Will not go in and I cannot take


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Camera shutter not opening


The best thing you could do is take it to a competent repair shop, tell them what happened, and have them fix it. If it is just sand jamming the lens cover, they shouldn't charge too much to fix it.

Alternatively, if you can move the lens covers at all, try gently working them back and forth in very small movements while holding the camera with the lens pointing down - basically just try to work the sand out and let gravity help you. Be careful though, you may get sand deeper into the camera's mechanisms this way!

Digital camera dropped lens-opened on the beach and now the lense will not open properly


Hi

There is sand in your lens and it is jamming upthe gears. One grain of sand will cause the lens to fail! You can try to take the lens apart and clean out the sand but it's not easy and an opened lens usually never focuses exactly right again.

Look for a defective camera online that has a good lens but broken LCD or some other problem and fix that one using yours as parts or have yours fixed with a new lens.

We can do a new lens install for you for about $80-90 I believe. If we can help please let us know!

Lens Error


As a camera repairman, I can tell you that even replacing parts, you will never get all the sand out and it will most likely continue to give you problems.Sell it for parts on ebay and buy a working one.

Lens error was at beach no sand but yet when turned on it says lens error


Anyone who has ever been near the beach knows that as soon as you are within 100ft of the sand you will feel sand in between your toes even with your sneakers and socks on. That's because sand is in the air and contaminates everything. Therefore, if you value your camera, mp3 player, radio, cellular phone PDA, or laptop computer, DO NOT TAKE IT anywhere near the beach. Solution: use an air compressor. Blow air & dust through the hose first. Use clean air to blow out extended lens area. Open and close lens and blow out several times. Firmly jolt the camera into the palm of your hand to dislodge the dirt particle. Use more air. You may notice sratches on the side of the lens cylinder that were created by the particles of sand. 99% pure isopropyl alcohol (91% if you're in a pinch is available at any drug store) can also be used on a Q tip and swabbed around the lens barrel cylinder. Make sure you use a few CLEAN Q tips on the lens. Now go buy a disposible camera and $10 mp3 player for the beach and leave the $200+ camera and IPOD at home or at the hotel room. Now you'll surely have a wonderful time at the beach.

PowerShot SD600 will not focus


If the camera was open (lens extracted) the camera lens may be damaged. If you can retract it (power off), then maybe it's just dirty. Can you zoom in or out?

How do you fix 'lens error restart camera' I put it in my bookbag. I guess i threw my bookbag around and now i have this "lens error, restart camera." The lens froze halfway and it's staying that way....


It sounds like. You really need to have some one take it apart and clean the sand out of it. The camera will make those noises when the sand gets between the gears of the lens assembly and they cant connect correctly.

ou could try helping the lens go back in GENTLY. But thats risky and you could ruin a lens that would work just fine if it where cleaned out.

let me know which model and brand you have and I could tell you better whether or not you should try anything your self.

goodluck,
Caleb
