The same thing happemed to me and when I turn the caera off the lens won't go back in. After a while I get annoyed but its not my fault i think the camera does not like me?!? Solution: Just let the camera be and then it will maybe be better than before. Trust me I did this and it works but still the lens won't go in?!?!? LOL LOL

SOURCE: Cannon Power shot SD630 Lens Problem

We had the same problem after my wife accidently dropped ours. I disassembled and reasembled our camera, after assuming that the lens was not recognizing that it was closed, hence the error. I can try to fix your camera for $50 and you pay all shipping charges.

SOURCE: jammed lens

Hey latyrant,
If the lens visibly looks crooked then the lens is probably broken and needs to be repaired by an authorized service technician. One thing you could try is placing the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed up and holding the shutter button in, while doing this turn the camera on. Sometimes this will force the camera to try and focus before the camera can register the lens problem and sometimes it will force the lens back into alignment. If this doesn't work you could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they could send it out to get looked at by a technician. I will say that the cost of digital camera repairs often exceed the value of the product. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.

SOURCE: the camera lens wont come out

Fixing a Lens Error on a Digital Camera

This has to be THE most common failure mode for a digital camera. Some common error messages that might show up on the LCD's of cameras with this problem include “E18 lens error”, or “lens error, restart camera”. Some cameras might show nothing at all, but merely make a beeping noise as the lens goes out, then in, then the camera shuts off. Sometimes the lens won't even move.
The problem is actually quite common throughout all camera brands. 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. Believe it or not, one BIG contributor to lens errors is using a camera case. Sand, gunk, case fibers, etc... accumulate at the bottom of the case. These materials love to cling to the camera by electrostatic build-up from the camera rubbing against the side of the case (especially those cases with soft fibrous intreriors). Once these materials work their way into the lens mechanism, that's all she wrote. I have many Canon's, and NEVER use a case for this very reason.
A camera owner that suffers this problem may have no recourse for having the camera repaired. Many camera makers will not honor repairing this problem under warranty as they claim it is due to impact damage to the camera, or sand or debris getting into the lens gearing mechanism (neither of which is covered under warranty). The quoted repair cost is usually close to or more than what the camera is actually worth.
Fortunately, about half the cameras that suffer this failure can easily be fixed by one of the following methods. None of these methods involve opening the camera, although some have potential to cause other damage to the camera if excessively done. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.
The methods are listed in the order of risk of damaging your camera. Thus make sure you try them in the listed order. And remember, these fixes (especially #6 and 7) should only be considered for a camera that's out of warranty, who's cost of repair would be excessive, and would otherwise be considered for disposal if unrepaired:
Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on. If that didn't work, try pressing and holding the Function or OK button while turning the camera on.
Fix #2: Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install new batteries, and turn on the camera. If you get an Error E30, it means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the memory card and turn it on one last time.
Fix #3: Insert the cameras Audio/Video (AV) cable, and turn the camera on. Inserting this cable ensures that the camera's LCD screen remains off during the start process. Thus extra battery power is available to the camera's lens motor during startup. This extra power can be useful in overcoming grit or sand particals that may be jamming the lens. If the AV cable doesn't fix the lens error by itself, consider keeping this cable installed while trying fixes 4, 5, and 7 as a means to provide extra help to these fixes. But note that I DON'T recommend keeping the cable installed during Fix 6 as you may damage the AV port while tapping the camera. Reinsert the cable only AFTER tapping the camera.
Fix #4: Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.
Fix #5: Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).
Now we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care when conducting the following two fixes.
Fix #6: Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or cracking LCD screens.
Fix #7: Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera.

My camera samsung when turned on , the lens out and log in again and power then die


Suspect battery - won't hold a charge. Go to Walmart, borrow a replacement battery that is charged, and test the camera - if no issues with borrowed battery, purchase a new one. Enjoy.
DO NOT force the lens in or out, the gears are tiny and very fragile - another possibility, if the lens moves and then stops and the power dies - gears are jammed or broken. But go for the battery test first. Good luck.

My camera ( finepix jz100) wont open and screen says turn off and on again when camera is turned on


It looks like the lens is stuck or jammed. Is the lens damaged in some way? Make sure the lens retracts fully when the camera is turned off. If not the lens is probably defective.

My samsung st700 is brand new have it only a week and it has stopped working. when i turn it on the lens extents and then it stop, i have no screen and it will not respond and then the lens wont retract....


Hello,

If you have been using this camera outdoors, then the one causing your problem is a grit of sand jamming the lens. Hold your camera with your right hand with the lens facing the ground. Next, tap the camera's base to your left palm while powering on the camera. You might want to do this several times. If it still wont work, and you can avail of the warranty to save repair cost.

Hope this helps.
