Okay gently push the lens in if it does not give any play STOP and take it in to a repair shop if it gives play retract it all the way in take out the battery and put the m back in for a full reset if that wroked you just had a stuck lens motor that got freed if that did not work you got a bad motor inside that needs to be replaced.

This is due to a firmware problem. It is common. You can send it in to manufacture and they will repair it for $50 or you may get lucky enough to find an update on the web.

Sanyo S650 lens error 2111


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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

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

Lens Errors 17 & 27 on Sanyo VPC-E760


My camera was showing lens error 12&25 and then shutting off. I tried gently trying to twist and pull the furthest out part of the lens and it popped back into place easily. It made a noise when it did this, and then i turned the camera off, and the lens went back in!! Completely fixed now!!

Lens error


Hey jennbrady24,
What is most likely causing the lens error is that something is obstructing the movement of the lens (i.e. sand). I would first try removing the batteries and the memory card and waiting at least 2 minutes and then reinserting them. If this doesn't work I would then try blowing compressed air into the lens to try and dislodge whatever is causing the lens to stop moving. If this doesn't work I would try placing the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed upwards, then press and hold the shutter button while you turn the camera on. If none of these options work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

My digital camera say lens error:21 how do i repiar the lens? sanyo vpc-e760 My SANYO VPC-S650 says lens error:507 everytime I turn the camera on. The lens has not returned back to normal position, and...


The lens has a servo fault. This can be either the lens motor, the helicoil in the lens is jamming, or the servo drive electronics has a fault.

You will have to send the camera for service if you want to fix this. I doubt you can fix this yourself unless you have access to the parts, and have the training and tools to do this type of service.

If the "!ZOOM ERROR" message is displayed on the digital camera, switch the camera off and on again 2 or 3 times.
If this does not clear the error, take the camera to your nearest FUJIFILM Service Station for testing and repairs. Problem may caused by lens zooming gears stuck.
