Hey shelldawg,
This is a common problem with point and shoot digital cameras caused by something obstructing the movement of the lens. The first thing I would try is blowing some compressed air into the side of the lens to try and dislodge whatever might be obstructing the movement of the lens. If this doesn't work you could try putting the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed up while holding the shutter button in, and while doing this turn on the power. What this sometimes does is force the lens to move which sometimes will force the lens back into alignment. If neither of these options work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

I own a casio exilim ex-z850. it has been showing a lens error, every time i try to take switch it on. the memory card is fine, i view the pictures. but the lens wont open up or anything. please reply...


Hi,
This error indicate that focusing ring got stuck or jammed due sand, dust, may be due to external shock caused by dropping the device.
  • You can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
  • You can try to turn camera ON at the table (facing it to the ceiling), don't put camera down face to the floor when opening.
  • If motor is running but lens won't retract sometimes lens would slip off with the gear or break off a tooth in the gear when it gets dropped. Try to gently move the lens barrel around with the finger and see if it is moving, but if tooth or gear is broken lens will move onces or twice then it will stuck again.
Else your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring at Service Center.

Good luck and have a nice day.
Rating the solution is highly appreciated.

Focus error


hi...The transmission system that moves the lens in and out has a problem with it's gears. There is most likely a gear or an actuator that has fallen out of alignment and is getting stuck at a certain point as the lens comes in/out.There is some disturbacnce of the lens arrangement that is preventing the lens from coming in/out.Any of these symptoms above could trigger the camera to shut itself off to protect itself from further damage. thank u rate me!!!

Casio ex-z80 lens error


Hi Mark, welcome to FixYa.

The problem your having is that sand and/or dirt gets in the lens mechanism of the camera. When the little cog inside gets sand or dirt in it, it prevents it from moving. It is what causes 95 percent of all lens errors. This is how you can fix it.
Take an air compressor (or borrow a friends) and put the nozzle up to the space in between the lens and and the camera. Blow it out real good. It may take a couple of tries, but it should free it up.

Let me know if that helped, and feel free to rate my answer.

Casio EX-Z700 was dropped in sand. When camera is turned on lens makes a grating sound and the moniter screen is cloudy. It originally said lens error, but no longer says anything.


Hello, I'm Mark Faith from the states. I purchased the CASIO EX-Z700 series.
However, I accidentally dropped the camera when the camera was on and the lens was extended.
It makes a grating sound, and the monitor screen said "Lens error".

Now, the camera is turned off with its lens extended.
When I see the lens from the top, the lens position is more concentrated to the right, and the gaps between each lens is bigger on the left hand side of the lens.

I sincerely hope this would help you to analyze the lens situation.
I'll be patiently waiting for a list of solutions.
Thanks.

Mark

Hi,
This error indicate that focusing ring got stuck or jammed due external shock, liquid, sand & dirt etc. enters the camera.
  • What you can try to do is spray some compressed air into the lens area to try to free up any sand or dust that may have worked its way in. If that doesn't help, you can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
  • You can try to turn camera ON at the table (facing it to the ceiling), don't put camera down face to the floor when opening.

Else your camera need to be disassembled to get at the focusing ring.

Good luck and have a nice day.

I dropped my Casio EX-Z1000 on a tile floor. The camera turns on and the lens goes out and quickly retracts and camera shuts off. I can still view pictures on my card and can enter info on date, time, etc....


Unfortunitly when ever a digital camera is dropped it can cause the lens to come out of alignment this is what causes the error or problem. The len has several moving parts and can be replace most of the time it knocks the focus motor and zoom motor out of sync thust causing the lens to go out to try and post and sience the camera can tell the alignment is off then the lens goes back in. The repair for this should be around 100.00 I just got through fixing 2 of these for the same problem. Sorry but I hope this helps.

Is there anything that sounds like a "beeping" noise when it extends? A lot of times the focus motor gears are knocked out of place. This causes a lens error, even if the lens extends fine. The camera has the "external" zoom lens, and an internal focus lens. This can be only fixed with disassembly of the lens, if indeed this is the problem you're talking about.
