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 centre 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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

Neptune front loader. What does error code u5 indicate?


Hello. Are you sure of the error code? I checked the service manual and couldn't find that code listed. A jammed or clogged drain pump error is "ND". I need the exact model number to help you most accurately and provide exploded parts diagrams and part numbers. The Neptune series has a lot of service bulletins on components inside. I want to make sure I give you absolutely correct information.

Hello, I've just bought a Voit Eco Elliptical cross-trainer - had it set-up - and have used it once. Now it doesn't work, at the 2nd work-out! The screen indicates 'ERR4'. I've tried to reset it, stop...


Hi Belinda,

I know someone who was seeing the same error and also tried resetting the computer on the machine but did not work. As per what they told me it was some issue with the Motor. And they could replace the motor under warranty and the issue was resolved. you can try doing the same thing if nothing works. cheers.

I have a canon powershot and i dropped it. now it says lens error, restart automatically. but the lens can't move at all, i tried to wiggle it...nothing


Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) 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. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.

Error message ''Lens error'' on nikon coolpix digital camera


Try cleaning any grit out of the lens mechanism with compressed air and a little wiggling of the lens. If that doesn't do it, the camera needs servicing.

Lens Cover


The micro motor broke in the dust cover that opens and closes the cover. If your camcorder is still operational then I would not worry too much. Only when you can not get pass the error messages to operate then you will need to get a new one from sony (~$50). If you are mecahnically sound to take apart small things otherwise, take it to a professional.
