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 centre 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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

I have a sanyo vpc e1090 digital camera. it is reading lens error 0x0000 when it is turned on. it makes a hum noise then shuts right back off.


The lens is stuck. If you can't GENTLY pull it open, try lightly tapping the camera on a firm surface to see if it dislodges any debris. If that won't work it must go in for repair.

I have a sanyo vpc-e1090 which displays a Lens Error 0x0311. The camera powers up then shuts down. I am unable to get into the menu to check any setting. Any ideas on how to fix this issue?


Maybe the lens are blocked.
Try :
1.- Turn OFF the camera and push softly the lents
2.- Turn ON the camera and PULL softly the lens.

When we turn on our Sanyo VPC E1090 digital camera the lens does not appear to come out completely & we get an "lens error 0x0311" message on the screen then it turns off. WHAT IS WRONG!! ...


If lens does not appear to come out completely and camera gives error that means lens mechanism got broken internally and lens assembly will be replaced to solve the issue.
Lens replacement is not user level repair and local camera repair shop[ will do this job for you if camera is out of warranty.
Thanks.

Hello! I have a SANYO VPC E1090 digital camera. When I turn iton the LCD screen has a red bar across the top and says "Lens Error 0x0311" and then powers down. Do you have any suggestions other than...


The lens error refers to a 'binding' in the mechanism for focusing.

The camera will not operate if this error exists. So, it's important for the owner to try to seek repair service for the camera.

Sanyo vpc e1090 says lens error 0x0311 when i turn it on how can i fix it


I have one of those and had the same message. Go to the menu and then into the "settings" section. One of the settings will be "digital zoom". You will have to enter into that setting and set it to "ON". Worked for me!

My sanyo camera is not working


Well maybe I can solve this..... My lens would not retract and showed two error messages. Tried a number of tricks that have been recommended on this site to no avail. Ultimately what worked for me was pushing quite hard on the barrel of the lens trying to force it back in ( yeah i know, sounds extreme but did'n't think it could make the situation any worse ). The lens remained in the locked out position not moving in spite of the fact that I pushed it fairly hard. When I turned it on the lens retracted and it appears to be fully recovered from whatever was ailing it. Hope this works for you.
