This is common, but the fix is even odder!

This is not a joke....it will work just be persistant!....

Use a can of compressed air and blow around the lens while it is extended. Take a relatively firm approach with this problem slap the camera into your palm two or three times.
Not lens down in this case, but using the side or rear of the camera to make contact with your palm
Make sure you have the camera cord around your wrist so as not to lose it across the room.

Do this several times and turn it on and off till the message of tuen ona nd off no longer shows(if it ever did) and the lens retracts and works correctly. The compressed air will help remove any accumulated dust that is jambing the lens.
This is a sony tech fix and not a joke, they charge you $90 to do this and this fault is not uncommon in many of these small cameras
dust and dirt get taken into the lens bay ad eventually cause it to stick. Hence the use of comptressed air with the brutal approach


Please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Is there a specific error message, such as "lens error"?

Odds are it's a lens problem, which is very pricey to fix.

Hello. I have a Kodak Easyshare M853 and everytime I turn my camera on it says "lens error error 10f,1,0,0" and then turns off. The lens is extended out and it will not retract. It has not been...


try to leave the batteries out for a day or two, it'll reset the camera, but it'll only last a week or two, then odds are, it'll do it again. I had one to do the same thing- and the camera was only 6 months old- i don't think it can be fixed without sending it off.

Cyber SHot DSC-W80 lens will not close.


Your lens is jammed. Odds are it's unrepairable, but as a last ditch effort try GENTLY wiggling/twisting the lens as you attempt to power down or on.

Lens error


First check the battery for full charge.
This may be a damaged lens system.
Lens error is usually E18 or text "lens error" or other error message.

What you both can try is something I have tried and fixed some cameras.
As the camera starts, gently push in on the lens or pull..that may be able to be determined by the way the lens acts. You have to study carefully the lens as it is extending to see what happens.
If any noise is present as it is extending, then you may have internal parts which are broken in the lens. Sell it for parts on a site such as Ebay. List it as is, parts, or repair.
take care,
