Hey Ryan Roos,
This message should mean there is something obstructing the movement of the lens (i.e. sand). You could try blowing compressed air into the side of the lens to try and dislodge whatever is in the lens. You could also try putting the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed up while holding in the shutter button, and while doing this turn the camera on. If these options don't work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct your lens error. 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:

M425-12 lens error


This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

The lens has a servo fault. This can be either the lens motor, the helicoil in the lens is jamming, or the servo drive electronics has a fault.

You will have to send the camera for service if you want to fix this. I doubt you can fix this yourself unless you have access to the parts, and have the training and tools to do this type of service.

Lens Error, Restart


Hi

What you are seeing is a generic stuck lens error message, turning off the camera and turning it on again will not fix the lens unfortunately.

Your lens needs to be cleaned or repaired, and if it cant be repaired it needs to be replaced. There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

Fixya rules prevent me from giving you a link to anything off Fixya that would help you fix your camera.

Good luck from....

It says lens error


its probably broken but the black slides that cover the lens if you play with it alot or push them in when the camera's turned off the lens mess up or if you've dropped the camera too much the lens break on the inside.
