The lens just gets jammed up if you tap it gently on something with the lens facing down sometimes it will free it up

Getting error message "Turn of the camera, remove the camera lens and turn on the camera"


This is an error due to programming of the camera. The lens is either sticking or not open fully as it should causing the camera to think the lens isn't open at all. I would try to download an update for your camera's software or have it sent in and upgraded.

Lens Error fix for Digital Camera


One of the mostcommon digital camera error messages has to do with a lens problem.Some cameras will just beep and not show any error message and otherswill have an error message on the LCD screen. Some camera's will try tostart, the lens will go out and then return back and shut down.Sometimes nothing at all will happen, but the lens is the reason whythe camera will not start up.


Different camera'smay give you different error codes. Some of the error codes will beE-18 for older Cannon camera's, ACCESS error for Sony, Zoom Error forFuji, lens error restart, or just plain lens error. These are themost common camera error messages, but your digital camera may have a different one.


There are manydifferent things that can cause the lens to give an error message.One of the most common causes is keeping the camera in a case or bag.The dust, grit, felt, and lint from the bag gets into the cameralenses and causes it to jam. The static electric from the camerarubbing the side of the case causes the dirt to be attracted to thelens, which makes the problem even worse. Also if your camera is in acase and the button gets pushed to turn the camera on, and the lenscannot extend it can cause the lens pins to come out of the track,causing focus problems and lens errors. Bottom line is that you areoften better off not keeping your camera in a case! It is saferwithout a case then with one.


The next problemthat many people encounter is that they drop or knock the camera withthe lens out. When this happens, the lens pins can come out of thetrack, and/or the lens can be knocked sideways, which will jam thelens as it tries to extend and/or focus and zoom. If you do drop orbang your camera against something, there is about a 50/50 chancethat it can be fixed. Many times with care the lens can be realigned,but in some cases the jarring or the realigning, will break somethinginternally, so there will be no fix for it.


If your digital camera hasa problem, you will have a couple of choices. You can try to fix ityourself, or you can try to find a camera repair shop that will fix it for you.Because of the type of problems that cause lens errors, the digital camerarepair will seldom be covered under the manufacturer warranty. Alsobe careful to get a quote from a digital camera repair shop before youauthorize the repair. Many times the repair price quoted will be morethen the replacement cost of the digital camera. If you do a search on theinternet for a camera repair shop, make sure to include any shipping andhandling costs in the repair price.


If you choose totry and repair the camera yourself then look for my tip - Steps toRepair a Digital Camera Lens.


This gives you thehow and why of your digital camera error message, and/or why your digitalcamera will/may not start up.

When i turn on my camera the lens close and on the screen it says "lens error!" and goes black.


Hello Lash,

The lens error in many cameras are caused due to sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Sand, gunk, case fibers, etc... accumulate at the bottom of the case. These materials stick to the camera by electrostatic build-up from the camera rubbing against the side of the carrying case. To resolve the lens error remove the battery for some time. Then insert the battery again and charge the battery completely. Then try pressing and holding the Menu, Function, Function Set, or OK button while turning the camera on. Also try the factory reset option. Also try the on/off button many times after battery full charge.

Good day! my camera unit is SONY DSC-W310 . my problem is about the lens of my camera which fell down on the floor and the lens is open and now it cannot function and it indicates on the LCD this quote...


A lens error can be caused by physical damage to the mechanism that controls the lens, or debris that is interfering with the operation of the lens.

This article may be able to help you with a "do it yourself" solution.
http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

In the event that your problem is due to physical damage and not just dirt or debris, you will need to take it to a local camera repair shop for troubleshooting-- though with most consumer digital cameras, labor and parts cost of a repair can easily exceed the value of the camera.

Lens error, restart camera.How can I restart the camera IXUS 60?


Hi,

Since the camera is locked after lens error, you will restart camera removing batteries.

If this does not help, then you are in one of the following conditions:

Lens error and lens does not retract.
Try helping lens gently back in while you turn off the camera holding the button at same time.

Lens error and lens do not extend.
Restart the camera , and try gently tapping the camera back with the palm of your hand whilst restarting camera at same time.

If that does not help, then one part on the camera lens assembly is broken or out of place, or dirt inside lens mechanism caused the fault.

The lens must be disassembled by a technician to fix the problem.

If the problem is not fixed swapping batteries and resetting, then the camera must be taken apart and tested by a technician.
