Try this: Power the camera on then gently push on the lens while hitting the power button again so that it will try to retract the lens. but be gentle as you could damage the camera worse.
if your interested in having it fixed for around 120 or more than dont try anything and just take it to a repair company.

if that doesnt reset the camera then you can try taking the batteries out for a couple day and then put some lithium batteries in it if it takes aa's that is. They have a little higher voltage than some batteries and while sometimes give it a little more push to get things going. Leaving the batteries out would let the camera forget its memory. If you had the camera stored without batteries then don't worry about trying to reset it as that would have already happened.


Let me know how that works or if you need anymore help,

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.

I have a sanyo vpc e1090 digital camera. it is reading lens error 0x0000 when it is turned on. it makes a hum noise then shuts right back off.


The lens is stuck. If you can't GENTLY pull it open, try lightly tapping the camera on a firm surface to see if it dislodges any debris. If that won't work it must go in for repair.

When you turn the camera on or off the lens will not zoom in or out it is stuck halfway on my sanyo camera vpc-e760


I had this same failure. It could be two things, one you bumped the lens an knocked it off the track it rides on. Easier done than you think, or the motor has failed on the lens. You can try to take it apart as I did, but you need time an small tools to do it. It took me three hours to take apart, an two hours to get back together. Dont throw it away I you can fix it. Someone could fix most likely if that is it

Lens error


Try blowing through the lens or tap the camera repeatedly with the lens facing the ground. A debris/sand is probably stuck inside the lens mechanism.

Hello! I have a SANYO VPC E1090 digital camera. When I turn iton the LCD screen has a red bar across the top and says "Lens Error 0x0311" and then powers down. Do you have any suggestions other than...


The lens error refers to a 'binding' in the mechanism for focusing.

The camera will not operate if this error exists. So, it's important for the owner to try to seek repair service for the camera.

Sanyo camera repairs


Hi,

This error usually comes due to faulty sliding mechanism.Put a bit of force on the focusing lens to push it back into camera casing. That's the reason the sliding mechanism won't work. The lens is stuck and if you force it back in, the sliding mechanism will work again. Not responsible if your camera screws up, so try at your own risk.

Or else try out this method.Pull the lens fully out and then it will work.It will be bit tricky to get the lens out. Use your nail to "grab" between the outer glass and the little plastic cover.
Thank you !!
