I have the same problem, which is not one but only a symptom : this problem occurs if the camera doesn't appreciate the batteries you feed it with ! use another brand, another model, or if rechargeable use another set of fully charged batteries...
I consider this problem coming from faulty design of the camera which consumes batteries very fast AND is very sensitive to the battery type you're using :-(

In most cases this isn't a mechanical problem, it's the component board that runs the auto-focus. This is a common issue, the only way to completely resolve it however is to have it repaired by the manufacturer.

As this was a common issue, many users have stated their camera was replaced even after the 1 year warranty had may want to check with the manufacturer to see if this is the case with yours as well.

Lens error pentax e60

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 ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Pentax K110D and Sigma 17-35mm F2.8-4 EX DG

The Penta K110D has a 1.5X crop factor so a 17mm lense would be the equivalent to 25.5mm (in 35mm standard), therefore may not give you a 103 angle view. You would not really notice that much difference between 17 and 18mm.

Canon PowerShot® SD850 IS LENS ERROR


what you are seeing is a generic message that means there is some sort of problem with the lens, it could happen in many different ways such as sand or dirt in the lens gears.

A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.

Don't bother trying to send the camera to Canon (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.

I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.

We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.

Hope this helps,

Lens error

This error... lens error.. can be the result of many abuses. If the lens is held back as it is extending, it can damage the tiny parts. If the lens is bumped while it is extended, it may damage the internal parts beyond repair. Sometimes the lens get off track as a result of a blow while extended.
If the camera is dropped, the lens mechanism can be damaged from the impact, even though it is not extended.
If you treat a digital camera with a lot of care, and put in a padded camera bag, you may extend the life of the camera.

Pentax Optio 60 LENS

The same thing happened with my camera, I gave it to a freind for her husband to look at it. He said when turning on face the lens side down (to the ground) when turning off hold lens side up right (to the sky). this worked for mine. I don't know if he did anything else to it but when I zoomed I got lens error. I did what he said and it took several tries but it did work... please post if this helps you.
