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 centre 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.

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

My cann ixus 960 us not turning on..cant plug into my computer..every time i turn it on it shuts down and the lens are left open..please help


The lens is probably jammed. There are a few gears inside the lens assembly that can hang up, break, or get dust or sand in them, and cause them to not be able to drive the lens. Here is a website that describes things you can try to do to correct the problem. However, only about 1/2 the cameras can be fixed these ways, they report. Worth a try, some people have reported success. Then site refers to the problem as a "lens error", but it's the same type problem. http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

ERROR 99....WHAT THE MEANING....HELP ME/ model canon 1000 D


Error 99 means "other error", so there are may possible causes. However, in most cases it refers to a communication problem between camera body and lens.

Try the following:
  • Remove the lens.
  • Check the contacts at the lens mount and contact pads at the lens for damage and dirt. If necessary, carefully clean them.
  • Power on the camera, without a lens attached. Does the error recur?
  • If the error did not occur without a lens, re-attach the lens and try again.
  • If this did not solve the problem, try a different lens
If this didn't solve your problem, please report what happened when you performed these steps.

How do you restart the ixus 60 Canon digital camera, anyone? Please help!! Thanks Claire@klarity.org, Maui, Hawaii. Aloha!! & Mahalo.

Hi-- my canon SX110 won't switch on properly. it keeps telling me there's a lens error and to restart. when this has happened in the past, i've just switched it off and then on again and it's worked. not...


Try removing and replacing batteries to reset the camera. Ensure that batteries are fully charged.

If that does not clear the problem, then the lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. This happens because there is dirt inside the lens (sand dust), or one part in the lens assembly is bad or went out of place.
Because of this he 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.
If if does not extend tapping gently the back of the camera, and if it does not retract helping lens back in while turning camera respectively on and off.

More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

HI. Every I attempt to take a picture with my cam, I get a "Error 01" message. Please advise. Thank you


Err 01: LENS COMMUNICATION DESCRIPTION: This error occurs in the following conditions: When electronic communication with the lens cannot be established, after the EOS D300D is powered ON or when the shutter button is pressed halfway. When the lens diaphragm cannot be controlled during shutter release.

REMEDIAL MEASURE: Clean the electronic contacts on the lens with a clean, soft, dry cloth and check the mount interface switch on the body's lens mount for dirt or other damage. If this does not solve the problem, try another Canon EF lens or have the EOS EOS D300D examined by a qualified service technician. This error is similar to Error 84 on the D30.


rate me on this one...

thanks!

Error 99 Code on 5 month old Canon 40D


error 99 can be several things. Try the following. Check that the contacts on the lens housing are clean if not clean them with a swab of denatured alcohol available at walmart. also if there is extremely cold weather your shutter could be creating the error. Try using a blow dryer and on the warm setting warm up the camera with the lens off. Blow around the mirror area. I know it sounds silly but it has worked in the past. Good luck.
