"lens error turning off camera.


If the camera was dropped it can somehow seize the lens related parts since they are mostly made from plastic. It is also possible that particles like sand grains can go between the moving parts of the lens and seize the mechanism. Either case the repair could be expensive and may not worth having it done.

Lens error, restart camera.


Lens errors are 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. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

When i press the power button i get an error message


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Camera was dropped-- "Lens error-restart camera" message


If it is still under warranty , please repair it.
If it is out of warranty. Try to get a quote, it the quote is more than 50% of original value , forget it.
For digital camera's they die like flies. New ones are better and cheaper anyway.

Lense error restart camera


A digital camera's lens is a very easy thing to have damaged. If the lens is bent some time you can force it in to the other direction and it will pop back into place. some times the gears get stripped and the lens then has to be replaced. I replace lenses all the time because of this issue. Hope this helps.
