Camer says lens cap on but it is not!

My camera has started saying the lens cap is on when it is not. It started doing this only occasionally at first and now it is every time. It still records sound but no video.

The internal iris is probably stuck closed. This is not a repair for anyone that has not worked on cameras before. The lens assembly must be removed and the iris section dis-assembled, and cleaned. Once that is done, it must be re-assembled. There is a possibility that the iris control motor is bad too. You can try tapping the side of the camera close to the lens area to see if you can free the iris, just don't hit it too hard.

Keep us posted.

My camer says lens error,restart camera waht do I do?


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 problem


I have had the same problem with a different camera, the problem started when I did not have sufficient battery charge to turn the camera off completely. The camera shut down, but the lense did not retract.
You can try a few things:
First try remove the batteries and holding the power button as if you are going to start the camera, then reinsert and try again. (make sure they are fully charged first)
You can try connecting the camer to the computer before you turn it on. Connected to the computer the camer goes through a slightly different start up procedure.
Try switching it to playback mode on restart.
If these fail I have a couple of tricks up my sleeve, but need to know the answer to these questions:
1. has it suffered water damage?
2. has it been dropped recently?
3. what happend when the lense did not close properly? Is this the first time?
4. Can you access the menus when "restart camera" is on screen?
Just post a comment back

Lost lens cap


I would sugest using an adaptor ring. You can reduce the size of your lens opening down a common size lens cap that will fit your camera. If you can't go this route then give me the make and model number and I will see what I can do for you. LJ
