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.

Regards
Andrea

Getting message "Lens error. Will shut down


Welcome to FixYa.

Getting message of "Lens error" occur if you hold the lens while it is in motion or when using it in a location with excessive dust or sand in the air.

If this error continues to appear, contact a Canon Customer Support Help Desk as there may be a problem with the lens.

I hope this information will help your issue on your camera,

I just got this new camera and about a week ago I was taking a picture when the battery was low. the warning sign came up and i was about to shut it off when the lens did not go back in. now the camera...


Don't mess with this. Bring it back to where purchased and exchange for a NEW replacement. I wouldn't accept a camera purchased as new - only to have to send out for repair a week later! I'd want a NEW one. You should too. Most sellers have a return policy that will allow returns in the first couple (or more) weeks and you should take advantage of that policy.

I hope this helps & good luck!

I Dropped my camera model c330 and the lens will not return. I get lens error codes 22 and 12 and the camera will shut down.


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.

Camera is always shutting down even if its not low battery.


This is what usually happen when the battery power is too low to drive the lens motor that results in the camera using more battery power to close the lens causing the lens to jam and shut down. you can retract the lens ,replace the batteries and also check the warranty cover for the camera if still under warranty you can return for possible replacement

My cam


Hey jo-dee,
I am assuming this camera was purchased on BestBuy.com because it was shipped to you and the paper you have is most likely the invoice. Digital cameras have a14 day return/exchange period, and if the camera is defective you should be able to bring the camera to a Best Buy™ store and they can return it with the invoice. That being said since this is a gift if you do return it the funds should go back to the person who purchased it. If you are outside of the return/exchange period most digital cameras have a 1 yr mfg warranty and you could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

Kodak Easy Share C330 lens error 14 and lens error 22


Hello,

I bought two of these on clearance and gave one to my in-laws. She suspected that one of her kids may have dropped the camera or pushed in the lens. I don't remember which lens error number had shown up, but I dis-assembled the camera to find out what the deal was. If I remember correctly, there is a way to manually turn the gears to put he lens back out. I left the lens out and turned it on and it worked perfectly. Fair warning though. It is VERY IMPORTANT not to touch the contacts for the flash EVEN WITH THE BATTERIES OUT!!! God did it hurt like hell... unfortunately it is fairly easy to do and I must have accidentally done it about 4-5 times while messing with it..
