I've been tempted to throw my camera out the window recently. Having the lens open and then close a few times and then the blasted camera tells me to turn it off and then on. So I did. With zero results. *grrr* Thank goodness I found this sight! Gently tugging on the lens didn't work, but banging it lightly against my desk a few times did! WHOO WHOO! I hate that I have to abuse my camera to make it work, however... it works now and I'm delighted! :)

Camera was laid on its face and now lens won't open. worked fine before


This is a situation where the lens has jammed in it housing, there is a motor that extends and retracts the lens. One of two tings have happened, the motor has seized, or the gears have jammed preventing the lens from moving. This will require a camera technician to see if it's possible to repair lens in the housing.

I have a camera canon powershot and the lens was out of the camera while it was off. Now when i try to power on the camera the message error: "lens error. restart the camera".


you have a mechanical jam in the lens gear chain. It happens often when lens is extended, the camera may have slight impact or pressure on the lens, it damages the plastic gear chain and jams. You can try with very light force, jiggle the lens while tuning on the power to disengage from the jam. If this does not help, you need a help from repair technician. Average repair price for this repair would be around $115. -James

Lens jammed on a kodak v1253


I fixed my v1253 following these steps:
1. Pulled the battery when the lens starts to come out before it could power itself off.
2. Gently pull the telescope out until it clicks.
3. Use a fine tip paint brush to clear debris out of the cracks.
Camera works just fine now.

Lens retracts with difficulty


1. Do you have a camera case?
2. Or do you not?

The dust fibers from the case might have gotten into the cracks of the lens causing it to jam. So everytime it retracts, it jams. That's what i'm guessing. My old camera got jammed from sand grains on the beach.


- Take a thin strip of paper, and insert it in the cracks of the lens and circle around the lens and find any dust or anything. The paper slip should come out a bit dirty if that's the issue.

- Gently nudge the lens around, until you hear a click. The lens might have jerked into another position from the inside.

Casio ex-z500 jammed with lense stuck in out position; gears grinding when power applied


I have just experienced the same problem with the lens jamming. I bought it for my wife having been impressed with the EX-Z500 my daughter bought. She had the same problem last year and paid for an expensive repair, then I found that her partner's sister had also bought one and.......you've guessed it...the lens jammed on that one too.

So that's another three Casio EX-Z500 digital cameras to add to your list of Casio generic lens jamming problems.
