Hi! Better check it with qualified technecian. It might damage everything if you force it. The lense broke inside. It needs to be replaced or adjust the screw to lossen so that lens will go back to its original position.
Please feel free to comment.

The lens is stuck, it doesn't come out


Hi, This is a very common problem with digital cameras. The lense is a very complicated piece that has motors sensors focus motors that can see clearly at a distance or close or in between. So any rough handling or trying to open lense in a case or pocket by accidental getting its on button pushed is a death sentence for lenses on digital cameras, dirt sand etc getting in the conical tube setup is not good either, they CAN NOT be mishandled if you think that that bump the camera got wasn't that bad the lense will have the final say and odds are it will say NO. Final thought is it's broke so try wiggling the lense with you fingers,tapping gently on a hard surface if it don't fix it it is still broke and probably to expensive to repair.

My lens is stuck out and it will no longer take pictures. It is brand new!


The lens has either been hit, dropped against something, or the camera allowed to turn on while in a pocket/purse/case. The lense drive gears are plastic and not entirely substantial and require care - which most people especially teens and 20's don't give them. Once in this condition, they're done for. You can attempt to contact Fuji for repair, but you'd be responsible for the cost unless they're feeling especially nice that day, since there's simply no way for the lense to become jammed during normal operation - unless the lens is bumped or hit while open.

Since these camera require total disassembly, from the back forward, to get to the lense assembly, it'll be cheaper or near it to replace it than to repair it. Take it as lesson learned, and treat the next one with more care. NEVER touch the lense when open, NEVER allow it to bump anything, NEVER drop it, NEVER place it in your pocket or purse unless the power button is protected from being accidentally turned on.

Lense won't open or close


It is time to send it in for service if it is an expensive camera ($200 or more retail price) or throw it away if it is inexpensive. A repair for that may run $100, espcially if it was bumbed ot dropped and ther is mechanical damage. If it is under the warranty then definitely send it off.

Lens are stuck out. screen says "lens error"


There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can not take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard for a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal. Make sure to clean the outside of the lense when fully open and keep it clean always. If this did not help, read 2.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inspect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on the camera and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!

Dropped my camera canon sd450


The E18 error is 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.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try:
