    My lens is stuck out and will not go back in. Lens error 41. what do I do? I called the Sanyo service line and they told me that it would cost $96 plus $10 for shipping and handling. You can go to walmart right now and pay $94 and get a brand new one.

    god stupid camera

  • fjfiji Apr 16, 2009

    Has ANYONE found ANY WAY to solve this yet? It just happened to me last week- my camera was connected to the TV and fell off twice- the first time it was fine, the second time it appeared fine until I realized the lens didn't go back in when I turned off the camera. It still takes pictures, videos, and works in general, but the lens is unprotected now and it's hard to take places. It also cannot zoom- when I try to zoom, Lens Error 41 pops up on the screen and it shuts itself off. I have watched the lens when I turn the camera off, and it actually comes out farther instead of even trying to retract. Any ideas are appreciated; I love this camera and it has been nothing but perfect for me. If I fix this problem, my camera will not be sitting on any high objects without something securely holding it there. Someone out there must have an answer...

I have the same problem ..
it was error 16 AND 21 .
im not entirely sure about the error 27 or any other
numbers ;
but i do know for a fact its because there
is something like dirt ; hairspray ; make up etc.
in the lens .
idk how to take the camera apart ..
but your best luck is to kind of jar your camera with your
palm or a book or something .
mine fell on the floor at first and was fixed ,
but today i dropped it in a little bit of sand and hasnt gone
back down yet .
im hoping i can fix it :/
let me know if any of you have any luck .

Lens Errors 17 & 27 on Sanyo VPC-E760

My camera was showing lens error 12&25 and then shutting off. I tried gently trying to twist and pull the furthest out part of the lens and it popped back into place easily. It made a noise when it did this, and then i turned the camera off, and the lens went back in!! Completely fixed now!!

My sanyo camera is not working

Well maybe I can solve this..... My lens would not retract and showed two error messages. Tried a number of tricks that have been recommended on this site to no avail. Ultimately what worked for me was pushing quite hard on the barrel of the lens trying to force it back in ( yeah i know, sounds extreme but did'n't think it could make the situation any worse ). The lens remained in the locked out position not moving in spite of the fact that I pushed it fairly hard. When I turned it on the lens retracted and it appears to be fully recovered from whatever was ailing it. Hope this works for you.
