Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Sir, there doesn't seem to be an error code accounted for that reads E30.

Canon IRC 2100 Service Repair Manual
That is the link to the service repair manual which also has the error codes so you can diagnose what is going on although there doesn't seem to be an E30 code accounted for.

This is a more extended list of all of the error codes and once again there seems to be no E30. There are 9 pages of error codes if you'd like to look.

Np 6551 canon error 210 righaway


This is a problem with lens motor - not moving the lens to the home position sensor. When the copier is first turned on the scanner should go to the left to the scanner home position. The lens will then move to the left to the home position and then go towards the rear of the copier to its home position. If the lens doesn't reach the home position within 9 seconds then you get the error. Check to see if it gets to the sensor and if not like not even moving then most likely the lens motor is bad. I know that the copier had a problem with the gear cracking on the motor. It will have to be replaced. The removal and replacement procedure is too detailed to explain. A trained tech may have to do this for you. Good Luck.

Canon NP6060 error code E210 Press Power Switch to Off then On


This error code, on older machines, means that the lens cannot get to its home position.
Lift up the top cover (or Document feeder) and look under the platen glass as you switch the power on.
Can you see the lens moving, trying to find its home position.?
If not, it is stuck on something, or the drive cables are loose...

MP140 can't recognise the black cartridge that I've just installed. Error code 4 - any ideas? I've tried the manual - nothing, and not much luck online - Thanks


Error code 4 normally indicates that there is no unk, and the solution is by installing a genuine cartridge, Try to use Black PG40 remanufactured Canon printer ink cartridge. This cartridge is a high capacity cartridge which has been filled with 23ml of ink compared with the 16ml (Black) that you get with the originals. Compatible with: Canon Pixma MP140. if this error still occur it is better that you try the following procedure below:-

When you insert a refilled ink cartridge into your Pixma MP140 printer you should get a warning about the refilled cartridge. You should also be prompted, asking if you wish to disable ink level detecting. Agree to do so, and you won’t get the warnings again because the ink levels won’t be monitored by the printer.

Thanks
