Try to see what type of memory card you're using, see if that's complatible wiht your D53. try to use lower memory capacity for your camera. D53 is in fact an old model so i suppose it supports memory card of lower capacity. try to use 256 MB memory card.

SOURCE: Lens Struck

I had the same problem for several dads. I know this sounds silly, but after reading about numerous people having the same problem and without many solutions offered, I tried the somewhat weird suggestion of shaking my camera vigorously around and it worked! I promise.

My samsung st700 is brand new have it only a week and it has stopped working. when i turn it on the lens extents and then it stop, i have no screen and it will not respond and then the lens wont retract....


Hello,

If you have been using this camera outdoors, then the one causing your problem is a grit of sand jamming the lens. Hold your camera with your right hand with the lens facing the ground. Next, tap the camera's base to your left palm while powering on the camera. You might want to do this several times. If it still wont work, and you can avail of the warranty to save repair cost.

Hope this helps.

My camera is saying lens error and it wont open the lens


Try one of these two fixes, if they dont work for you follow the link below for further troubleshooting.

http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html


Fix #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.
Fix #2: If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 (for older Canon's) means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

Lens wont open


Lens mechanism isn't good to work properly so camera shut down the power. Try to tap the lens/ camera while power up.
If you have a memory card in the camera, take it out before turning the camera on

Camera wont turn on, intermittent red power coming on


This may or may not work (it's primarily a trick for certain Canon cameras with similar symptoms). Remove the cameras battery, then remove the memory card. Insert a BRAND NEW or fully charged rechargeable batteries. DO NOT insert the memory card. Instead, just turn on the camera. If the lens retracts, turn off the camera, insert the memory card, then restart the camera.

If this doesn't work, here are some other things to try. But don't get your hopes up, as they only seem to work for little less than half the cameras with similar problems:
