Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. 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.

Regards
Andrea

I have an Olympus VG-16 and it has just recently started to play up. I have had it for at least 2 years and it's used on a daily basis. When I go to power it on the lens opens and closes twice and then...


This could be the auto focus sensor that is not working that why the lens comes out and goes back twice. The other thing it could be is the range on the lens is not enough and it wont reach full extension. I would send it in. www.precisioncamera.com

I have the stylus 840. When turning it on the lens comes out and goes right back in twice, then the "alarm" sounds 4 times and then it turns back off.


Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try 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 (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

My camera was dropped and now its reading lens error 126,1,0,-8 when turned on it will only go to the boot up screen and when shuttting off the lens does not close


How high is the drop? Lenses of our cameras use motor and gears that varied the focus. Your error that you are having probably indicate that some of the mechanical part of the lens could damaged or misaligned as caused by impact of the fall.

Zoom error showing on display screen of my daughters fuji finepix f40fd digital camera. Unable to press button to take photos and when I try to turn camera off the zoom lens goes in and out twice before...


The lens Is trying to close properly but the focus mechanism has a problem, most likely jammed, so the lens cannot correctly close or work properly.
It will need to be opened up and reset.

Casio Exilim EX-S880 won't turn on, lens clicks


Do you have a mem card installed? If so what size? Make sure it is the right size for your camera. Also make sure the battery is fully charged. The lens clicking twice makes me believe that there was some kind of damage done to the lens like maybe accident powering on when it wasn't supposed to like in a pocket or something. You may have to send it in. Expecially if it says "lens error".

Casio Exilim Ex-S880


I have had this issue on several Casio camera the lens comes out fine and then goes right back in some times it just gives you two beeps and nothing else. the problem is with the lens its focus motor is out of ajustment. According to Casio this is not covered under any type of warrenty coverage and that ****.but hehe sometimes you can take it back to places like bustbuy and if you have your receipt they will sometime swap it out. But lets say they don't. well you sometime can get a replacement lens for it off ebay for pretty cheap. This is only if you are sure that you can fix the camera. If you choose to have it fixed make sure you shop around there is a huge diffrence between shop to shop.
