My cam was dropped accidentally due to which the lens got stuck pretty badly, i had it repaired by a registered dealer/repair shop for casio cameras. the lens were working the way they should be when...

The fix is to contact the repair shop and explain that they may have "unstuck" the lens but they messed up the focussing. Let them fix it on their dime, not yours.

When camera is turned on the lens won't open, message comes up lens error will shut down automatically

Was the unit dropped or were any liquids messed onto the lens assembly previously ?
If dropped (particularly if the lens was open) the lens drive mechanism might well have suffered damage.
If liquids, particularly ones containing sugar, were accidently messed onto the lens assembly, then the sugar becomes sticky as the liquid dries, effectively glueing the mechanism in place.

My daughter dropped my camera it was in the case and now y camera is blinking f is my camera messed up or is it the lense?

Hi mom_0809, According to the manual page 132, it says F- - blinks means No lens attached, non-CPU lens attached. Solution is to attach the lens, select mode M. If the camera sustained a violent drop maybe the lens internals became damaged. Remove the lens then put it back on. Turn to page 129 for how to reset the camera. Does the F- - blink with another lens. If so then the camera should go to Nikon for a CLA

Olympus Fe-310, lens is messed. Possible sand in it but not sure.

the lens alignment of your camera is messed up it will take service repair to fix it, it would cost you the same for a new one...
however there is an alternative solution but this seems weird it up for you to try...

try to slap your camera several times on the side of the lens or try to intentionally drop it but not to hard, drop it on a carpet or somwhere thats not hard..

google this: error 45 on kodak easyshare LS753

then choose the 5th result youll find forum about this wierd solution...

Thanks! and good luck!

Lens error 22

The camera can be fixed. The lens and any other parts will have to be replaced.

You should first get an estimate for service. It may be cheaper and better to replace the camera.

It says lens error

its probably broken but the black slides that cover the lens if you play with it alot or push them in when the camera's turned off the lens mess up or if you've dropped the camera too much the lens break on the inside.
