    The same thing happened to me. I went to turn my camera on and it did, but the lens kept zooming in and out and then finally stayed in and a message popped up on the LCD screen that said Lens Error with a red exclamation mark. My camera is relatively new and i've never dropped it. I did take it to the beach once or twice, but i didn't get any sand in it.

    I have the same problem with my nikon coolpix s200. After 2 months the lens of my camera won't go inside. On the lcd screen stood lens error. I went to a shop with this problem. He took the battery out of my camera and press the off and on button for a while. Then he put the battery back in the camera and press the on button. The lens of the camera was now going inside en outside and inside and outside with a strange noise. And also on the screen stood lens error. Okey, the lens is inside the camera. But how can I fix this camera? What is the problem? What have you done? Please let know..!!

  • simplysavulo Aug 09, 2008

    I turn it on and it makes an extremely weird buzzing noise and the screen shows up white with red words saying lens error with an explanation mark.

    I don't know how to fix the problem.

    I took it to the beach twice and when I came home it stopped working!

    I've tried blowing in the lens and turning it on and off but I have no idea how to fix it!

    Can any one help?

    Just over this last weekend, I was using my camera to take pictures of my daughter and then all of a sudden the camera lens started going in and out the focus was off and then "lens error" appeared on the display. So I turned it off and then on. The problem is persisting and there is a strange noise too. I did not drop the camera or anything. This happened out of the blue!

    When we say lens error it means that the camera lens won't go out and the screen says lens error

  • Anonymous Mar 09, 2009

    I had the same problem straight out of the box...where it turns on, lens goes in and out and the says LENS ERROR! I returned it, received another camera and two months later, same thing. There was no reason for it, I have never dropped it or gotten any debris in it. Just a subpar camera I'm afraid. So glad I purchased it from Circuit City that is now out of business! ha! Guess I'll be talking to Nikon directly :(

  • tcrisler172 Mar 14, 2009

    Just tried Jaydeeee's solution....got zapped when I touched the capacitor. I wouldn't suggest removing the back if you don't know what you're doing. I'm going to find a different camera for my daughter. Won't buy a Nikon again.....

Ok,i had this problem & couldnt find solution anywhere,so i took the back off the camera to reveal the lense unit.Now there is 2 screws in the middle of the back of the lense you need to remove together with ribbon cable.Underneath this is a small square rubber seal which was not seated properly.All i done was to seat it back in the right place,put all back together & hey presto,turned camera on & all was good.
This might not be the same problem you all have but it worked for me.
Good luck !!!

SOURCE: Lens 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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Lens error


Lens stuck, is common defective that need new lens unit replacement or just repairable.

Causes of a Lens Error: There are a number of ways with which a lens error can be caused. Particulates might have managed to get into the mechanical bits that allow the lens to retract, a purely physical interference with the lens mechanism. If the camera was dropped, especially while the lens was extended, there's a pretty good chance something might have been knocked loose, such as the guide pins upon which the lens withdraws and retracts.

How to Repair a Lens Error: As scary as a lens error might seem, there are some easy fixes. Before trying any of them out, however, first take a good long look at your camera warranty and maybe have a chat with the company. If the lens error will be covered under the terms of the warranty, go for it. Even some of the simple fixes mentioned below might void the camera warranty. Frankly, however, it's unlikely that a lens error will qualify for the warranty.

Tip

Sanyo digital camera showing lens error 1114 or 112


Hi.

If your Sanyo digital camera is not starting and you get lens error 112 or lens error 1114 prompted on display, that means that the lens is getting stuck, and cannot extend or retract fully. The controller board detects the error on startup, and shuts down after displaying the error message.
This errors usually happen because of dirt, or because the lens mechanis mis damaged in consequence of a shock.

If lens does not retract, try helping the lens back, without putting too much strenght, while you turn off the camera at he same time.
If the lens does not extend, try tapping softly the back of the camera to help lens out, while you turn off the camera at he same time.
If the camera had been exposed to sand or dust, try blowing canned air on the lens.

If this does not work, the lens assembly must be taken apart completely and re-assembed, and for that you need a camera repair shop.

Also call the number listed on the owners manual to get support from the manufacturer.

Lens error, restart camera


Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.
