There is not a lot that you can do with this. If it is new, take it back. If it is old you may want to consider a new camera. The issue is that there is only two things that you can do, change the batteries and the sd card. If you are using lithium batteries and a still get this error then it is not the batteries. If you have the card out and get the error then it is not the card. When you turn the unit on the system checks itself to see if everything is okay and it gets feedback from the processor and the light senser. The lans also sends info on its ability to focus. If it not able to complete all these then you get the error. The camera could be sent in for repairs but it might be more than a new camera.

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.

Keep saying lense 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 center 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.

Regards
Andrea

Lens is stuck


This is probably THE single 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
