If all mentioned solutions don't work I'm afraid there is one and only solution to this problem - replacing the lens.
I had the same probIem - 5f08 5e02 code on lcd - it is troubleshooting service code - malfunction of focus motor/sensor.
I've disassembled the camera, including the lens unit and found a damage in flexible connection between focus motor (including focus sensor) and the rest of the lens unit. There is a specific bending of this flex - it's located between the shutter/focus unit and the lens rings. As You power on camera, zoom in and out, and finally shut it off, all the time this flex is being bended in this specific region - one day it has to breake:)
It is almost impossible to buy it separely, even if You buy second hand camera with other malfunction there is no certainty how much this element will take.
Simply : buy another camera:) (I suggest Fuji - easly servicable)

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your
camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to
replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest
you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any
off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about
warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
You may not believe this and I hope you haven't spent a lot of money fixing your problem. I read that some people had a different error message coming up on their Sony Cybershot DSC-W150's and in order to fix it, they literally banged the lens against their knee while the lens was out and it re-focused and the error message disappeared. I tried this while my camera was doing exactly what you described above AND IT WORKED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
After 2 or 3 firm blows, my LCD screen came up and focused. I can't believe it myself, but I was just desperate enough to try it and VOILA! Good luck!!
The movement of the lens is motor driven. When you turn the camera on,
the lens moves. The error 12, error 14, and error 22 refer to control
stages in the lens movement ( I think error 22 means the lens won't
retract). The lens housing and gear mechanism in this camera is
plastic. If there is dust, sand, or debris around the lens housing, it
may bind the lens when it trys to extend or retract. By banging it, you
might work the gears loose or dislodge whatever is binding the lens
(same with the "canned air" blowing out the dust). We've purchased a
bunch of these cameras for our electricians in the field. Several have
come back with this problem. I've taken the case off, and torn the lens
assembly apart, only to find the plastic gears have been "buggered up".
It's an inexpensive camera. Try to clean around the lens, give it a few
slaps, push/pull the lens.... but failing this fix, buy a new one.
the lens open halfway, the picture on the LCD is blurry and one second
after the lens close and an error appears of the screen saying "D: 5f08
5e02". what does this mean??? can you help me fixed this one??
