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. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

When power ON the screen displays"Lens Error!" & lens does not open.


Hi,
This error indicate that focusing ring got stuck or jammed due sand, dust, may be due to external shock caused by dropping the device.
  • You can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
  • You can try to turn camera ON at the table (facing it to the ceiling), don't put camera down face to the floor when opening.
If motor is running but lens won't retract sometimes lens would slip off with the gear or break off a tooth in the gear when it gets dropped. Try to gently move the lens barrel around with the finger and see if it is moving, but if tooth or gear is broken lens will move onces or twice then it will stuck again.

Else your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring at Service Center.

Thanks...!!

Lens won't extend. turned power on and error displayed, LENS ERROR. It stopped working after it was dropped.


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras, and one of the more common causes is dropping the camera.

There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

je viens de resoudre le probleme sur mon pentax E70L avec un simple aspirateur domestique,a l'aide du tuyau le plus fin, en realisant un nettoyage minutieux, tout autour de l'objectif, (sans rien demonter, evidemment!), ensuite le code lens error a changé, puis j'ai continuer a ouvrir et fermer l'appareil, a tenter de changer les options "scene", et l'appareil ne s'est pas refermer !...et j'ai pu refaire des photos!...soulagé!...l'appareil n'avait pas 2 mois!..mais rappelons nous qu'il n'aime pas le sable!

Lens error 12 & 22


Our school uses this camera. It's reporting a lens error 12 and the lens does not extend. Bumping it did not work, nor does pulling the lens out with a fingernail.

One teacher said that another school had LUCK by installing a new battery pack. The old one might not hold enough power to fully boot up the camera, causing the lens error.

I have noticed that the battery does not hold a charge for any length of time. This will be our next approach.

Cameras that are dropped, banged or bumped are not covered by a warrantee, so beware.
