Look at the photos that go with steps 25-32. These show some (though not all) of the internal lens parts. Hopes this helps someone!

No, but it sounds like your camera needs service. I wouldn't try fixing this on my own.

Lens error


Not really anything that can be done without taking it apart and fixing. Problem is then getting it back together!

I always suggest to friends that they buy a camera without the extending lens for just this reason.

You can try sending to Nikon or taking it to a repair shop. Most likely will be $100 or so to get it fixed. Or, they will tell you it's not worth fixing.

Lens error


yes, this happened to me, what you have to do is "snap" the lens back in place, if it is bent anyway. if it is not bent and it says lens error, does it the lens come in and out? if not then it is bent if so then there is a hardware error in the switch and you will have to send it to a profesionall. :) hope i could be some help :)

PowerShot SD630 lens stuck out, says lens error, restart camera


This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

E18 Error


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. If there's any consolation, the A400 lens barrel is very resilient in its design, so there is some hope here:

"lens error" on camera. Camera will not function.


Try helping gently the lens to extend completely, using your fingernails, if the lens still do not extend, then the lens cylinder must be taken apart and remounted, this is a job that must be done at a repair shop.

Cannon Power shot SD630 Lens Problem


I had the same problem, tried different things but this is what worked.

I put the camera flat on its "back" (screen down, lens up). Looking down at the lens I could see that it was slightly off center. I pushed the lens towards the center and down, forcing it to close. Once it was centered I was able to turn it on and off no problem.
