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. Also, please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

Lens error message. lens stuck open; gives a lens error message & must remove batteries to turn off


This seems to happen when something (water, sand, dust)
gets trapped in the lens mechanism.
Has the camera been somewhere filthy before?
The recommended methods include taping on the
bottom of the camera,rapping it on a table,
and pressing hard on the lens.
If the lens moves when you turn the camera on,
try keeping your hand on it so that i
t's forced back into the camera body.
A can of compressed air squirted around the
lens is also a possible fix...
but be super careful with that stuff,
a good hard blow of breath might be safer.

I'm not recommending that you do crazy stuff
to your camera, but if you're careful you may
be able to get it working again without having
to get it serviced.

Error E45


Turn your camera on and smack the camera against your hand. The E45 error means your lens is stuck. The lens on my V603 was stuck open, when I smacked it against my hand it closed and now works fine. Give that a shot.

Lens Error, Restart


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....

check if the little metal lens cover is stuck open.  Mine was stuck open, so I just smacked the camera against my hand and the cover popped closed.  Then the camera turned on normally...

Lens Error - Cool Pix L6 - Camera unuseable


Dont know if this will help anyone. I had a lens error for ages. In my long lasting devotion to google serk I found that many equall contenders found that a strike with a soft book in different directiions solved the problem. I ended up beating the camera from all angles with the palm of my hand. But hey! it worked. 4 months later im looking for the cure to system error 2. If you can help wi that one.
