Unfortunately this is one of the most common problems in your standard 'point and shoot' camera. If you are unable to fix it yourself, the cost to repair something like this is generally about the same cost as a new one. You can try and take it to a friend or a local repair shop, but before you do try reading the information from this link. Hopefully that helps

Lens will not retrack when turning camera off


The best course of action here is to just replace the camera, the repair cost is likely close to the cost of a newer model.

Getting an error code E 45


Hi,
Error 45 in your camera clearly indicates it is related to a lens issue. Something has caused the lens to jam or stop working. When it does you get the E45 error you have to update the firmware and the error should go away.
Thank you !!

The zoom lens don't retrack Display don't


Charlene, It seems that there some dust that has entered between the lens housing and the camera body. To remove it you must use the vacuum cleaner to pull out the dust from this place. And keep switching on and off the camera so that it tries to move the lens inwards/outwards. If this does not work then the movement mechanism of the lens may have got stuck and would require more serious efforts for which you may or may not have to tools and knowledge.

There is no DYI fix for your damaged lens, and attempting to repair it yourself will likely cause serious damage to the camera. Professional repair is needed to fix this problem.

THE TEL PHOTO LENS WON'T RETRACKED


That happened to me. Camera is a few years old so the warantee was long gone, so I actually took it apart and cleaned inside it with electronic cleaner.
If you still have a warantee you could call customer service and speak to a technician.
If you know how to put things back together easily, you can try it. You could probably use Air in a Can to spray around the lense.
I sure hope this helps!

Lens will not fully close.Len get stuck when retracking.


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.
