I have a sony cyber t70 camera and have an error code E:61:00 come up on screen and i cannot take a pictue please help me .. what solution can i find for this.. venkatesh


Sony claims that the E:61:00 error means "Difficult to adjust focus Inspect the lens block focus reset sensor". In my experience this means that the gears that extend and retract the lens are somehow jammed. This could easily happen if you hit something with the camera with your lens in extended (working) position.
You should try to:
- power off the camera
- place your thumb on the back of the camera and the fingers a few centimeters from the closed lens
- power on the camera, and with your fingers stop the movement of the lens forcing not to fully extend
- when the lens retracts or stops and then continues to extend, let it go

sometimes this would resolve the issue.
You may want to check this site:

wich has similar trick for a different model from sony, but the error is the same.
Be careful not to force the lens too hard or you may worsen the issue.
Let me know if this helped, good luck

When camera is turned on the lens opens and closes several times and then an error message appears: "Turn the power off and on again." When this is done, the camera does the same thing - lens opens and...


Hello

Unfortunately a "lens error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

Lens are stuck out. screen says "lens error"


There could be two things causing this problem.

1- some dirt somehow got on the outside of side of the lense. So the lense could not fully retract or open out. As a result you can not take any picture. If the lense comes out even a little bit, try to pull it out NOT too hard a few times. If it does not retract, turn the camera off and push the lense in (up and down) NOT too hard for a few times. If the camera opened up 100% or retracted 100%, your camera should be back to normal. Make sure to clean the outside of the lense when fully open and keep it clean always. If this did not help, read 2.

2- If you dropped the camera, some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated or the cable may have come loose. In this case you need to take out the lense from the camera and inspect it for broken pieces or loose cable. clean the outside of the lense and push the lense in and out a few times. Put the lense back on the camera and your camera would be back to normal.

Good luck!!!!!!

E18 error on Canon ixus40 - lens stuck


The E18 error is an error message on Canon digital cameras. The E18 error occurs when anything prevents the zoom lens from properly extending or retracting.[1] The error has become notorious in the Canon user community as it can completely disable the camera, requiring expensive repairs.
A quick internet search for "E18" + "canon" quickly reveals hundreds of similar complaints.
ConsumerAffairs.com reports that the "lens has a feature called bellows claw, which is a gear that physically extends and retracts the lens. A piece that holds the lens, the barrier plate, is not large enough and can sometimes cause the bellows claw to malfunction, resulting in a stuck lens". The result is a black screen that only contains the error message, E18. Another problem mentioned on the site blames a sticky iris in the lens, caused by grease entering inside from the microphones built into the lens. The buildup freezes up the ability of the lens to open.

Coolpix lens opens retracts opens then closes again and lens error appears


Hello

When you turn the camera on the lens comes out and has parameters when extending to focus, if the lens does not open fully it sees a problem and then closes.

there are tiny plastic gears inside and may have chipped or a piece of sand got in causing the lens to jamb. "very fragile"

one solution is to ask a camera repair shop how much a lens mechanism would be to replace. (if cost is more than 1/2 of what you paid dont bother)

another solution is to have someone sell your camera on an auction site for parts, to make some money towards another camera purchase

Shutter won't close all the way


The lens cover of PSA60 opens along with the move of the objective lens. Normally the camera will sound an error beep when the lens does not end to the end position -- the lens cover is also not fully opened. In reverse, the lens will be retracted when the camera is switched off.
The "shutter" (outside lens cover) might have something stuck inside the blades or other mechanical parts that prevents the lens cover fully closed. Try to blow with a clean air (no hot air - because it can damage the electronics or plastics).
Or maybe the blades are probably not flat that may create resistance on the surface. Try to flatten the blades by hands.
Or maybe the mechanical systems need to be calibrated (by Canon service center).
My suggestion, try to exchange/trade-in your PSA60 with the latest model at the Canon center, because I have done it last year (trade-in with PS S5IS).

Lens Error - Restart Camera : Lens remains in extended position.


Hey,

I had the same problem as everyone else regarding the error that would pop up stating that there was a lens error. I had the camera in my pocket when I went to a hockey game, pulled it out to take a picture, and it didn't work. Needless to say I was pissed because I expected far more from Canon. I was just about to go and buy a new camera, and figured that I would try to troubleshoot the problem and stumbled upon this site. Someone suggested turning the camera on and off while twisting the lens, so I figured it couldn't hurt to try it.

Before trying this, my lens would not retract all the way, the cover would not shut, the image was blurry, and I could not zoom in at all or the camera would show the error.

So, I tried the "twisting" solution, and it wasn't working, but I think I was being too delicate with it. I put a little more pressure on it and gave it a good twist. There was a clicking noise as others have said, but in the end, it worked after about 2 or 3 minutes of messing with it. No my lens goes down, the cover shuts and its clear as a bell. Not sure if this is a recurring problem as it appears to be a common problem, I fully suggest trying this before you send it off to get it fixed for a ridiculous amount of money.

Best of luck

Same problem here - the forum posting on the SD 500 seems to be a bit more active (for the same problem).
