    I'm having the same problem - but when I restart my camera my lens won't zoom out all the way, so the picture that I do see for a brief second is blurry. What can I do?

    When I pressed the start button, the lens popped out and is stuck in that position. I press the start button and a message comes up to restart the camera but since the lens is stuckin the out position, it shuts off.

    We've tried everything. The camera just stopped working one day. No trauma. Just a lot of heartache. I have read everything the internet has to say. I think I will have to buy a new one. Is there a guide to taking these damn things apart?

Hi

What you are seeing is a generic stuck lens error message, turning off the camera and turning it on again will not fix the lens unfortunately.

Your lens needs to be cleaned or repaired, and if it cant be repaired it needs to be replaced. There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

Fixya rules prevent me from giving you a link to anything off Fixya that would help you fix your camera.

Good luck from....

When you start the camera does the lense zoom out, and or does the lense cover open and close properly?

Digital camera lens cannot come out. Restarting required


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 ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
