Hi Mark, welcome to FixYa.

The problem your having is that sand and/or dirt gets in the lens mechanism of the camera. When the little cog inside gets sand or dirt in it, it prevents it from moving. It is what causes 95 percent of all lens errors. This is how you can fix it.
Take an air compressor (or borrow a friends) and put the nozzle up to the space in between the lens and and the camera. Blow it out real good. It may take a couple of tries, but it should free it up.

Let me know if that helped, and feel free to rate my answer.

I solved the problem with a recommendation Rob posted here on FixYa. Some air pressure blown around the lens and it worked. Thanks, Rob. You're my hero! I almost sent the camera in for repair.

What should i do when error 99 occur in my digital photo camera rebel xti


hiMostly you can not do anything. But it has two thing you have to check the cause. More than 90% are come from shutter unit defective and rest of them are other circuit fail on the sequence of function.But There is another thing you have check is your lens. some lens has cause the error. Like 18-55, 18-135, 24-105 focal length lens are common cause lens. If you want to know more, just let me know.
Your local repair shop would charge around $95 to 235 on body; around $65 to 235 on lens depend on what they really want to charge.
thanks and best regard!

When pressing the power button, the shutter opens, the lens comes out, the screen comes on for about 2 seconds. Then the screen turns off, the lens goes back in, but the shutter stays open. I let someone...


Look closely for sand particles that may be lodged around the gaps of the lens barrel. 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 ...

When i power my canon powershot A70 the display on the screen will illuminate for 3 seconds then a error will come on the screen E18


Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.

Nikon D70 will not power on after the lens was changed~


EDAWinc,
Is this a new or different style lens? You may not have it all the way on and aligned - try removing it again. Just remember to always turn off the camera before removing the lens or the SD card. Malfunctions are sure to follow if that happens. Try resetting the camera by holding down the two buttons on the top with the green dots for longer than 2 seconds (that works with the D80) The camera will not come on if the lens is not "on".

You have a jammed lens error the lens has to be repaired or replaced. You dont have to drop the camera for this to occur it can happen when ever the camera is in your pocket or purse. it accidently gets turned on and when the lens is coming out it is obstructed and strips the little plactic gears in the lens.

Error-C1


Dirt /dust in the lens and lens gear box ( this drives zooming only ) preventing optimum functioning. Lens cannot properly come on line ( shutter and diaphragh mechanism then do not come on line ) and the camera switches off. Solution : is ether replace lens unit or dismantle lens to clean out ( from gear box and the helicoil of the lens ).

"lens error" on casio ex-z3


Sorry to say but a lens error actually is a problem that you cannot fix at home. When a lens error occurs, the motors inside that make the lens retract and protract were some how damaged, usually caused if the lens try coming out when you have it in your pocket or against a surface so it cant fully come out. You will have to send the camera in for service and you can do that by calling 1-800-706-2534, option 1.
