G11 lens error and would not retract. applied gently pressure it retracted and seems to work but now does not focus.


Personally I wouldn't mess with it anymore, I know a lot of people say to push and pull on the lens and I don't think that's the best option especially since the focus is messed up now. I would just have it serviced and get it going right, maybe a part is damaged in there from when the lens got jammed. If you need help with it, try emailing this site: www.camerasandparts.com They just deal with problems on the Canon Powershots so my guess is they'll know right away what the problem is. If you need to have it serviced, they are excellent for help with these cameras and not expensive at all. Best of luck with the problem.

System Error (Focus)


The systems control board has detected a problem with the auto focus lens, the focus is controlled by a tiny motor that has jammed or there is a mechanical issue with the camera lens. It will require a technician that is highly skilled to deal with the situation, but the repair cost would probably not be justified.

I have a elixim casio, it was taking great photos and then i wiped the lens with my shirt and now the focus is fuzzy. I've reformatted and reseted my camera yet nothing works. Please help.


Look at the lens in the light from a desk lamp. Is it smeared from your "shirt" cleaning? If so, try cleaning it with some camera lens cleaning fluid and a microfiber cloth.

I had the E18 error--lens wouldn't retract and


Focus problems are quite common after a lens error, it sounds like you still have an issue with that lens unit. If you need help, there's a great site taht just specializes in the powershot problems, nothing else at all. Try going to www.camerasandparts.com and you'll see the fix for this for your SD890 camera. I hope that helps, that site is amazing for the powershots and that's where a lot of people go for help with these. Good luck with it.

Lens error


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Lens wont retract on power off.


Look at the battery near the contacts there is a little rectangle. If it's white then make sure all contacts are very clean. You can clean them with a q-tip dipped in rubbing alcohol. Clean all contacts, charger, battery and battery compartment on camera. If it's pink, you need a new battery.It has gotten moisture inside. Not your fault, this can happen from something as simple as jogging with it in your shirt pocket, yes it's true.

Camera focus error


there is a small logic circuit that controls the motor that retracts the lens and a sensor that tells it the lens is retracted, it is a lens position sensor, one of these two components is most likely defective, the thing is there are no consumer service info provided by panasonic, they will not sell you parts either, the camera is a mystery to take apart and repair without the tech manual which u can't get, so u see the delima here, u must either have this camera fixed by a panasonic repair station or see if it qualifies for a upgrade exchange program for a newer model.

Camera beeps loud 3 times and shuts right off!!


sounds like a lens error, does the lens extend or retract? You probably have to get the lens back on track, use gentle pressure wiht the camera face down on a towel covered table and turn on to see if the camera tries to retract the lens. I really dislike these types of cameras that extend the lens everytime, if it turns on in your pocket, your doomed!

CAMERA WILL NOT TURN ON


I had exactly the same problem I seem to have solved it by holding down the shutter button and then pressing the on/off button. It powered up and the lens stayed out. It was not auto focusing, so I placed it into manual focus and ran it back and forth in manual focus mode. (The circular button on the back adjusts manual focus by pressing it to the right or left) I suspect it's part of the start up self test that checks to see if the auto focus system is working, if it fails it shuts off. I think I stumbled onto a override of sorts by the button combination. Running the manual focus seemed to help. I do have a small black area in the upper right of the screen that gets no light - a dark spot. I store the camera in my pocket, I wonder if some pocket fuzz got into the camera somehow...
