TIPS:
1.)NEVER PUSH THE LENS IN AFTER CAMERA DIES, BUY A NEW BATTERY IMMEDIATLY AND TURN IT BACK ON, CLOSING THE LENS!

2.)NEVER USE AN AC ADAPTER, USE A RECHARGEABLE BATTERY OR A REGULAR BATTERY!

Do as i say..

1.) Remove battery
2.) Remove front plate (screw driver may be needed)

4.) Move the gear manually to make the lens come out.
5.) keep it out, put the front plate back together.
6.) reinsert the battery, turn it on.


or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Wait about 6-8 hours.
3.) Reinsert the battery.

or...
1.) Remove the battery.
2.) Try hooking it up through AC adapter, put correct voltage.

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Hi Pavel

Sorry but your camera needs to have the lens replaced. The drop onto the floor damaged it and the only way to fix it is to replace it. Wish I had better news for you.

Dropped camera while it was turned on - now "lens error" appears on screen & can't turn off camera or view pictures


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 ...

Samsung s860 camera got dropped turns on but screen is only white


dropping the camera might have caused damage to your LCD screen, best advise I could give is to send it in for repair

check if you can still view old pictures or if the on screen displays are visible, it will narrow down if the problem is with the lens or the screen

hope this helps

Only takes pictures when it wants to


It sounds to me as if this camera needs an urgent service. Most likely a connection inside has become intermittent. Unfortunately dropping a camera is one of the worst fates I could ever wish upon someone. We all know to use the strap, but we only drop them the instant we let go of the strap.  You were very lucky it did not land lens down. I have seen lens mounts ripped from their anchoring with the remainder of the lens smashing the mirror and sensor. At least it works temperamentally. Good luck with the service!

Dropped my camera.


Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.

It sounds like the fall knocked the gearing or track of the lens off. The unit will need to be taken to a repair center to be put back on track.

I dropped my camera and now the pictures are funny...


What you describe is the symptom of a stuck shutter. The shutter is inside the lens and must close in order for the image sensor to properly record the image. Yours is stuck open, and that is why you see the lines across your images. When a stuck shutter results from an impact it usually requires full disassembly and manual re-setting of the delicate shutter blades. This problem would require professional repair. Unfortunately damage from an impact is not covered by your factory warranty. You can find good repair services on the internet who can service your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair
