Re: two cameras and two lens erros
I don't think either camera is worth the over $100.00 that it will cost to fix. However, look at my posts on this problem of lens errors. By forcing gently the lens in or out when you start the camera and shut it off, it may get the lens to work again. This may damage the camera even further, up to you, and may be worth a try.

Hey Chamber Girl, One common cause of this is that something is stuck in the lens obstructing its movement (i.e. sand), and you could try blowing compressed air into the side of the lens to try and dislodge what ever is stuck. You could also try putting the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed up and holding down the shutter button, and while doing this press the power button. If this doesn't work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician, but I will say digital camera repairs often exceed the value of the camera. I hope this helps!

I had the same problem. I dropped my camera on the floor today while its on. I tried hitting it but it didn't work. So what I did is, I pull the lens or shuttle forward then I close it and turn it back on. It work perfectly fin now. I hope that helps.
