This is a typical lens error message, but turning off and on the camera will not fix anything unfortunately.

If the lens is stuck at an angle like the leaning tower of Pisa, then you can try to "snap" it back towards the middle to straighten it out. This is done at your own risk. Hold onto the larger ring of the lens, the one closer to the body of the camera and place the round edge of the outer section of the lens against the edge of a table or counter. Now apply pressure on the lens, pressing it back towards the middle. Hopefully the guide pin that is out of its track will pop back in and everything will work properly again!

If the lens is not at an angle, it needs to be replaced, that's the easiest solution because trying to rebuild one of these lenses is very difficult. I believe we can install a refurbished lens and ship the camera back for roughly $80 including the part, installation and return shipping.

Could be sand particles getting into the seams around the lens barrel, binding it up. Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try 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 (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

I dropped my camera in the sand and the lense won't close. When I turn it on it makes a buzzing sound and states ''Lense error, restart camera'' and then turns off.


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.

Lens error please help!!!


If the sand is in the zoom gears or auto focus gears then the camera would need to be disassembled to remove. Nice thing about this camera is that no soldering is required to take apart. A few small screwdrivers, and some tweezers would be all that is required. Canned air and a needle might also be helpful for removing the sand. If the camera just buzzes then I would say that the sand is in the auto focus gears (the stepper motor will buzz). If the auto focus lens is not fully retracted then the camera lens will not go back in (to prevent the auto focus lens from bumping against the shutter assembly)

The lenses are jammed


This happened to me to, try to fiddle around with the lense even if its rough try to pull the lense back out because it may be bent and stuck.
Try wobble it side to side if you notice it look a bit wonkie.

Good luck

Contact the makers customer support.
The likely cost of repair however will be near the cost of simply replacing the camera.

Lens error


ok,i had this problem & couldnt find solution anywhere,so i took the back off the camera to reveal the lense unit.Now there is 2 screws in the middle of the back of the lense you need to remove together with ribbon cable.Underneath this is a small square rubber seal which was not seated properly.All i done was to seat it back in the right place,put all back together & hey presto,turned camera on & all was good.
This might not be the same problem you all have but it worked for me.
Good luck !!!

Lens Error, Restart


Hi

What you are seeing is a generic stuck lens error message, turning off the camera and turning it on again will not fix the lens unfortunately.

Your lens needs to be cleaned or repaired, and if it cant be repaired it needs to be replaced. There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

Fixya rules prevent me from giving you a link to anything off Fixya that would help you fix your camera.

Good luck from....
