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.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try:

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

SOURCE: Lens error, restart camera

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

According to ehow:

Turn off your Canon 1000D and remove the memory card, lens, battery and time/date secondary battery. The secondary battery is a small, round battery about the size of a dime found in the same compartment as the main battery. It is located in a vertical slot. Slide out the secondary battery by pressing your finger on the battery and pulling it toward you.
  • Place the body cap on your camera to keep dust out. Attach the front and back lens caps on your lens to prevent scratches and other damage.
  • Let the camera sit for 20 minutes. This will clear the camera's memory.
  • Place the date/time secondary battery and a fully charged primary battery in the camera and turn it on.
  • Press the shutter release button (the button you push to take a picture). If you are still receiving an Error 99, the problem is most likely caused by the camera body itself. The camera body must be serviced by a professional camera technician.
  • Turn off the camera and insert the memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the memory card. Turn off your camera and insert a different memory card. Turn the camera back on and press the shutter release again.
  • Turn off the camera and reattach the lens. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you receive an Error 99, turn the camera off and remove the lens.
  • Turn the camera so that it is face down, and gently clean the lens contacts on the camera body with a number 2 pencil eraser or soft cloth. The lens contacts are the eight small, gold pieces on the bottom of the lens mount. Be careful not to let any of the eraser scraps fall into the camera body.
  • Turn the lens so that the side that attaches to the camera is upside down. Use the eraser or soft cloth to clean the lens contacts on the lens, being careful not to let any eraser scraps fall into the lens.
  • Reattach the lens to the camera. Turn on the camera and press the shutter release button. If you are receiving an Error 99, the error is most likely caused by the lens. Take the lens to a professional camera technician for repair.

    Camera says turn off and turn on panasonic lumix dmc-fs5


    Hi,
    While you are turning the camera on, hold the lever which you use for zooming in. The lens should extend before you get the annoying message about turning the the camera off and on. Then, gently apply pressure to the lens as if you wanted to push it back to the camera. While you are doing this, turn the camera off (lens should come back into the body of the camera). This will solve your problem.
    Thank you!

    Camera wont turn on and lens wont go in and i just put new batteries in


    Lens of the Camera doesn't retract:
    ---------------------------------------
    Before trying any of the suggestions, make sure that the Battery is
    fully charged and in recording mode.

    1) Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for a couple of minutes,
    then put them back in and turn the camera on.
    2) Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed
    air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body
    and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should
    remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function
    fine.s

    3) Try forcing the camera lens:

    Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and
    take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If
    you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the
    problem should be easy to fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if
    the camera was dropped while the lens was extended.
    Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try
    powering the camera back on.

    If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts
    again, do the following.
    (a) Turn the camera off.
    (b) Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part
    of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with
    both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in
    place.
    (c) Power the camera on.

    Another version of this fix would be to pull and twist on the largest
    ring of the lens while turning the camera on. Listen for a "click". If
    at first the focus seems to be off, turn the camera on and off and take
    lots of pictures, close ups and distance. Focus should slowly start
    improving.

    The lens will not retract when the camera is turned off. the screen says focus error when the camera is turned on. is there a way to fix this problem?


    I was able to lightly tap the lens in with the tip of my finger while turning the camera off. Then I applied a little pressure on the lens while turning it back on. I guess I was thinking that I would make the lens work a little harder to come out and tighten whatever may have slipped or something. Anyway, after dropping it on carpet and tapping the lens, then the pressure.... It works. Hope this helps..

    Problem


    I had the same problem and fixed it.
    The problem is related to the lens not working properly and jammed up.
    When powering on the camera, the focus goes in and out and the lens spin and then the message is displayed to turn camera off.When I turn the camera off, I noticed the lens did not fully hiberate into the camera like it did before the error message.

    So to fix the problem I did the following:
    Turn the camera on, when the lens extended out, I slightly rotated the outer most lens clockwise and counterclockwise to free the lens from the jammed position.

    The error no longer appeared and the camera stayed-on.When I shut the power-off the lens completely hibernated again like normal.

    Hope this helps.

    Digimax 430 camera won't turn on


    If your lens is open and the camera turns off after those dreaded beeps, I have a fix for your problem. Basically, for this model of camera, the lens first pushes out a bit and then it retracts into the camera. Well, my lens got stuck on the pushout and it prevented the camera from turning on. I used some finger pressure and wiggled the lens a bit. Then I turned it on and it retracted to where is was supposed to be to take pictures. Then I turned it off and it retracted into the camera. Problem solved!
