Well, when mine did this, it was because the camera had been dropped and the lens inside shattered. Cost nearly as much to repair it as it did to buy.

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 are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) 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. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.

BLUR PICTURES


Memory cards don't cause blurry pics. Is your lens clean? Is the lens extending properly?

Lens wil not open. Turn camera on and it gives you a "lens error"


Hi,

The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. 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.


1.Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.

2.
Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera. If you get an Error E30, it means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Thank you !!

Camera lens will not extend


Hi, I didnt even read the description for your problem, this is easy to fix

The problem you are having is that the camera lens will not extend

How to fix this is simple:

I'm not actually sure what you mean here, it is helpful on fixya.com to provide an accurate description of the problem you are having, this way the experts, such as myself, can help you quickly and easily. Providing just a title is not going to give you the answer you need.

If your lens will not extend, be sure you have batteries/charger in the camera.

Also be sure that there is not a button that allows you to extend it

It would also be helpful to provide what kind of camera you have

Please fix these issues with your post and I will help you solve your problem, this entire process should take anywhere between 10-12 weeks to resolve
