My camera was dropped on the floor, now everytime I turn it on it says lens error on the screen and the lens itself will not detract when turned off.

Focusing mechanism might be either broken and jumped out of its place
1) Take a screwdriver and open it yourself (it's not that complicated, as soon as you don't lose any parts; just try to remember where every part lies in).
2) When after opening the case you still don't understand how the focusing mechanism functions try to place battery inside, switch it on and then you'll see what exactly is blocking the focuser from moving back and forth.
3) Either place the focusing mechanism back correctly or if something is broken that you can fix with a SuperGlue - do it.
P.S. I once had the same problem after dropping my photo camera (Canon PowerShot G7), but the focusing mechanism was broken so had to go the mechanic to replace it. Mechanic normally wouldn't object that you have already disassembled the camera - less work for him.

When I turn in my Olympus Camera, the screen background is blue and it says the following: D: 5f0a 5f08 5f0a 5f08 5f02 The camera model no. is Stylus 710

  1. Replace the batteries with new ones.
  2. The focusing ring may be stuck or jammed. Try and spray some compressed air into the lens to try to free up any sand or dust that may have gotten in.
  3. If that doesn't help, you can gently bump the camera to try to free the focusing ring.
  4. Try and move the lens to the left or the right until the lens pops out.
  5. If that doesn't help, the camera will have to be totally disassembled to get at the focusing ring.

When the camera is exposed to hot temperatures 100 plus the camera will not focus properly the image on the screen jumps and the lens or focus feature inside the camera vibrates you can feel the movement...

There is steady shot mechanism located at end of lens assembly, that mechanism gone bad and vibrates, replacement of that mechanism will fix your camera issue.
Local camera repair shop will do this job as camera will take apart to replace defective part.

Focus error

Very common Fuji lens problems. Find a good independent repair shop that may be able to fix. Fuji will charge a huge sum to replace lens.

Camara not focusing/ zoom not working

Its an error code and shows problem of Lens mechanism.
Lens focus / zoom motor is stuck that's why camera gives out of focus image.
You need to replace Lens Assembly and it would cost you more then camera worth.

Red lights on focusing screen very faint

It sounds as if you must have had the lens off to get the focussing screen dirty. If not, it could be that you have dirt on the eyepiece you look through. The best thing for that is a soft brush to whisk away any dust on the eyepiece. you mention at the end of the question you need information on how to replace the focussing lens. It sounds as if you are not sure which bit of the camera is which, as the focussing lens is the one on the front of the camera where the light for the picture comes into the camera, and has rings around it which you turn and focus the picture while you look through the viewfinder at the back of the camera. If it is mucky, you need to blow the dust off the front of the camera lens with a blower brush, or a soft brush, or blow through a drinking straw onto the lens to clean as much off as you can. Don't try to clean it with a heavy hand, as it needs to be cleaned as carefully as possible, or any scratches will make the picture less good than it should be. My best advice is to take it to a camera shop and ask their advice, but first read up a book on basic photography and see how to look after a camera, and make sure you know basically how it works. You may find the shop will want to take it in for servicing, but first I feel you need to learn more about cameras. If you actually mean the screen, then I would definately take it to a camera shop to have them replace the screen with a new one - it needs you to understand the camera well though before you start, or you can ruin the screen quite easily, as they are delicate and fine items.

good luck with your photos!

Please help...I can't take any pictures!

Possibility one : lens unit faulty and proper focus is not being achieved camera goes into error mode because of this and then it switches off to prevent further damage.( replace /repair lens unit ) Possibility two: shutter faulty . Lens delivers proper focus but when you try to take picture goes into error mode because shutter not coming on line or malfanctions. ( replace shutter only ).
