Lens Error Message

I have had my camera for about a year, and it was working great. Then all of a sudden I am receiving "Lens Error" messages and the camera won't do anything until I turn it off.

    Exactly the same problem, the camera wa sworking fine, and then without any reason it started saying that there is lens error.

    Since then I have no been able to use it.
    Any suggestions?

    Hi,

    Same here, had the camera for 2 years and now I'm getting lens error. Must be a design fault. I can not even find my reciept to return it and I'm going away in a week on holiday and could really do with having it fixed or replaced.

    my zoom lense will not close when I shut the camera off. Also the Wide and tight angle button does not work. If you know how to fix this please send me an e mail at mrpoland@juno.com

I was getting a lens error message when turning on my camera and hence couldn't use it.

To fix it, when turning on the camera continue holding down the power button and then press the zoom in button (T on mine) and hold it. This forced the lens to stay zoomed and then it just started working again. Hope this helps!!!

Hi there

I had the same problem a year after I bought my camera. I returned it to Nikon and they fixed it and returned it. The problem reoccurred 3 times and each times Nikon repaired it free of charge. Then after a year it went again and, when I returned it to Nikon they sent me a new camera. Within a couple of months the new camera had the same problem. I have since resolved it with new batteries! The original coolpix rechargeable batteries do not seem to recharge properly so when I put ordinary AA batteries in it suddenly worked. Good luck.

Lens error= restart camera - this is the message I am receiveing from my cannon SX110 IS


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's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Focus error message camera wontwork


I found this site to solve this problem. I got as far as tapping the lens, while turning it off. That worked but I still could not take pictures, so, I got the idea to put slight pressure on the lens when turning the camera on and was delighted to see that the error message was gone. Then, reluctantly, I snapped a picture...It worked. Hope this helps u 2..
