ERROR: Turn camera off and on again

Hi this error message just started happening last week while I was on vacation. It is currently only occurring when I attempt to zoom in for a picture.

Note: I have been very careful with this camera....i.e. has never been dropped or mishandled over the time I've owned it (since January'07).

    When I try to zoom, I get the error message "turn camera off and on again." I don't know what to do.

Hey HENEE88,
This error message should mean there is an internal malfunction in the camera. The most common malfunction that would cause this message is something is obstructing the movement of the lens (i.e. sand). I would first try removing the batteries and the memory card for about two minutes and then reinserting them. If this doesn't work you could try blowing compressed air into the side of the lens to try and dislodge whatever is stuck in the lens. If this doesn't work I would have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they could send it out to an authorized service center. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

LENS ERROR 2 Exilim EX-H30


Try to reset the camera, by removing the battery and memory card for a few seconds. Then reinsert both and switch on again. Make sure nothing is obstructing the free way of the lens. When it does not help, perhaps a sensor or the movement mechanise is damaged. These errors also occur, when you accidentally touch the lens when it must move out. Before you give a camera to a repair centre, ask what it will cost and compare the price to what a new camera will cost.

Can't help with the camera- sounds like it has a fault.

The photos, however, should be recoverable by putting the memory card into a card reader on a computer.

Lens error message on nikon coolpix L18 I purchased my Nikon L18 Cool Pix camera last September ('08). Last week when I turned it on, the lens extended fully, then retracted fully as I got a "lens error"...


Hi,
When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.

Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.

Can't take pictures


If the lens is buzzing and followed by an "E18" or "lens error" message then the lens will need to be replaced. If no message appears you may just have flat batteries or even a single bad battery can cause this. Try getting some good quality disposable batteries specifically for digital cameras. If all is well with the new ones, invest in a new set of rechargeables.

Sony cybershot dsc-w80 - not working due to error message


I just tried the same thing as a last resort (knocking my camera on the table) with my DSW-100 and it actually worked! My camera has not been working for two weeks because it keeps turning itself on and off with the same error message. I can't believe that actually worked.
