Error message L1 and L2

My leica Minilux zoom lense started malfunctioning a few days ago and I got tow error messages erl1 and erl2. One when I turn it on the other when i turn it off. When I turn it on the lense extends itself fully and cannot be retracted unless I switch it off. The Shutter mechanism seems to still work though. Any advice?

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.

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

I have a TI-84 plus calculator. I enter data into a table (L1 & L2) and go through the steps to get an equation for the data. Next, I should be able to press VARS, move to Y-VARS, select FUNCTION,...


Your assumption
--Next, I should be able to press VARS, move to Y-VARS, select FUNCTION, then select Y-1 and automatically enter the equation into Y-1.-
is not correct.

When you press [STAT[>][CALC][4:LinReg(ax+b)] or any other regression model,the command echoes on the main screen. If you press [ENTER] at this point, the calculator uses by default lists L1 and L2 and displays the resulting equation without copying it in a Y-variable.

If you want to have the equation copied on a Y-function, you should modify the command as follows
LineReg(ax+b) [SHIFT][1: L1] [,] SHIFT[2:L2] [,] [VARS][>:Y-Vars] [1:Function][1:Y-1][ENTER].

Here, [>] stands for RightArrow. For any other regression model, use the appropriate command.
At this point, the command line should look like the following:

LinReg(ax+b) L1, L2, Y1

Press [ENTER] to calculate you get the same screen as when you do not save the equation in Y1, but if you go to the Y= editor or press GRAPH, you will see the regression line superposed on the scatter plot.

If the "!ZOOM ERROR" message is displayed on the digital camera, switch the camera off and on again 2 or 3 times.
If this does not clear the error, take the camera to your nearest FUJIFILM Service Station for testing and repairs. Problem may caused by lens zooming gears stuck.

I cannot get sinreg to work


Here are a few things to try.

First, I'd check whether the students put the data
into lists other than L1 and L2. If you do SinReg
with no arguments, the machine defaults to using L1
and L2.

Second, check degree versus radian mode.

Third, I have had problems in the past with SinReg
when the data were *too good*. I think a singular
matrix might be the culprit in a case like this, but I
doubt that's the problem here. If you think it might
be, try deleting every other data point and try the
regression again.
