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 center 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.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Error de objetivo reiniciar camara


El origen de este error se encuentra en el mecanismo del zoom.

Existe una corona de reduccion o engranje de doble corona que hace la rotacion del mecanismo del zoom, que al forzarce se le desprenden unos dientes (plasticos) y comienza a patinar en el lugar Esto pasa también cuando se cruza el lente de zoom,cuando se rompe una o mas guias ,lo cual ocasiona que los sensores de foco y demas no logren su propia calibración y es ahí cuando la maquina te envia ese mensaje.

Similar problema se presenta en varias marcas y modelos, por lo que aqui puede obtener mayores detalles (con videos incluidos): Lens Error when turn camera

En la pantalla de mi camara digital kodak c140 sale un error de lente error 102 por favor decearia que me expliquen por que salio este error y como solucionarlo les agradecere mis correo es...


Error de lente sinifica que hay un problema en la extension or retraccion de la lente. La placa base detecta que la lente no se puede mover y hay tienes el eror de lente.

Lo unico que se puede hacer es intentar ayudar suavemente el movimiento de la lente mientras que se encende o apaga la camera. Si esto no sirve, llama Kodak al numero que se encuentra en el manual de uso.

Aqui ay un artculo que trata el problema (en Ingles). Los codego son los de una camera Sanyo, la situacion es la misma que se encuentra en Kodac con error 102.

Zoom Error


I think a grain of sand was blocking the zoom tubes. This will not work if the camera has been dropped & the zoom apparatus is bent. It is entirely at your own risk & may invalidate any guarantee but they may charge anyway if you have got sand in. I cut a finger of 80gm computer paper 1cm X 5cm. Inserted this first  around outer zoom tube & worked it all around. It goes in quite deep so be gentle. I switched on to open zoom & tipped out batteries before it had time to close & repeated procedure. When I put batteries back in it worked OK. I repeated procedure with lens fully extended. I found a thin bit of plastic packing worked better as it did not kink so easily. It is still working today having failed 100% before.

No se como un lente puede romper el anclaje al cuerpo de la camara, pero si en verdad se rompio, deberia llevarla a una tienda fotografica para que la arreglen. Le queda tiempe en la garantia?

You have damaged lens barrel mech. Within the lens barrel, there are couple of tiny plastic gears and any damage to one of those gear will cause this kind of problem. I'm not sure it would be worth repairing the problem because of the cost of repair around $100. Good luck.
