Question about Sanyo Cameras

1 Answer

When I try to zoom in on my camera (a Sanyo VPC-E1090), it says "Lens Error: 0x2119" It used to say something similar to this when I turned it on, but I turned it off and on many times until it corrected it. But I don't know how to correct this problem or if it can be corrected. For background information, the camera is only a couple weeks old, and it has been mainly used at a camp and ranch where it is quite dusty. Thanks for the help.

I have one of those and had the same message. Go to the menu and then into the "settings" section. One of the settings will be "digital zoom". You will have to enter into that setting and set it to "ON". Worked for me!

I have one of those. As noted to someone else, go to the menu and into the settings. One of the settings adjustment is "digital zoom". Press OK to enter into that digital zoom and then press the down arrow to highlight the "ON". Then you can get back out of everything by pressing MENU a couple of times.

SOURCE: When i turned my camera on it says:lens error

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

I have a sanyo vpc e1090 digital camera. it is reading lens error 0x0000 when it is turned on. it makes a hum noise then shuts right back off.


The lens is stuck. If you can't GENTLY pull it open, try lightly tapping the camera on a firm surface to see if it dislodges any debris. If that won't work it must go in for repair.

The lens error refers to a 'binding' in the mechanism for focusing.

The camera will not operate if this error exists. So, it's important for the owner to try to seek repair service for the camera.

Error 2111 on camera VPC-S750 when i try to zoom in it says lens error 2111 and shuts off. the lens does not close when i turn my camera off.


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
