This error mesage is coming up more an more often and you cannot record because the lens will not properly focus on an object or landscape. I used to be able to pull the battery out...wait a few minutes... reinstall the battery and it would work properly for months - now it will not. Any suggestions?
I borrowed my friend's video camera and this message came up on the third day of our vacation. I started freaking out. I came here for solutions. I tried gently smacking it, but the error code still came up. We fixed it though. All you have to do is open the door to where the tape goes in, and blow in it. When you do this, the error code goes away and a new message comes up. Something about moisture in it. Take the battery out now. Put it back in afetr half an hour and the thing will work perfectly.

Could have been handy, if you told us what brand and what model camera you have. But I try it any way.
Check your manual, what the minimum focus distance for your camera is. Also check if there is a macro setting, because when you want to use the camera to film objects very close to the lens, the macro option will allow you to.
You don't need to drop a camera to get a lens error. Could be anything, from holding the camera in a wrong way (touching the lens barrel) or a bit of dust in the barrel or a gear, or a gear that breaks off. If the lens retracts correct when the camera is switched of, and comes out to the full extend when it is switched on, you should think everything is in working order. But when you say, the screen looks ver blurry that could be an indication, the lens is not coming out correct, or the focus mechanics does not work correct. I'm afraid you have to bring the camera in to a service centre (or buy a new one) if you can't solve this, by again take out the battery, charge the battery and reinsert the battery.
If the camera was operating properly before the zoom error then the most common problem to a stuck lens is dirt getting stuck between the two lens barrels. There are a few fixes for this none are guaranteed to solve the problem and should not be attempted if the camera is under any type of warranty. They include removing the batteries for a few minutes, reinstalling the batteries with fresh once with full power, turn the camera on while holding the the zoom button. Another method is to see if you can provide extra power to the focus motor by having the LCD screen turned off. There my be a button that allows you to switch from the viewfinder to the LCD screen switch to the viewfinder and try several times to focus (just point the camera at different distant objects) and attempt to focus the camera. I hope this gives you the results you need because the other suggestions may further damage the camera and are only a (last resort) thing. One is with the camera turned on tap the body on a counter or table edge while trying to zoom the lens obviously in the opposite direction to where it's stuck. The last is to gently push the lens in with the palm of you hand while zooming in. All these are just suggestions and carry no guarantee of working and may further damage the camera. The biggest cause of this problem is dust from a camera bag or some other environmental condition like sand from a beach.
yes thats a fair bet,,, it could only be the lens that took the brunt of the smack it had and its now jamming when you try to focus up on close ups,,,
try a difrent 50mm lens on it and find out if im right
E61:10 is a lens error code. You have a bad lens unit, but sometimes they can be fixed. The focus and zoom motor worm drives on the zoom lens jam when they get dropped. If your really really carfull you can free them up and fix the lens. Thereis a plastic claw that rides along the worm drive shaft that can get jamed. I've fixed thousands of these but i'm a guru. It can be tricky.
that problem is on the lens assembly...one the two motor is not working
properly...sometimes it is a poor connection to the socket of the main
board...other is photo sensor of the lens(not the ccd image sensor)or
the driver ic of the 2 motor...i suggest you have to go the service
center for repairing you camera cause it need to disassemble the camera
for doing this....
