Carmera flashes fEE and will not function. We have tried on a D80 and a D90 with the same result. Seems as thought it will not focus on auto-focus or manual focus, same error code.


It sounds as if you are talking about a lens "tried it on a D80 and D90" which is a bit confusing because the Fee code I' run into relates to a memory card being full with no available space for more pictures files. If this is not the case then clean the cold contacts on both the camera and lens with a new, clean pencil eraser by gently polishing the contacts. be careful not to get dirt into the camera body. The contacts look clean but for some reason over time thy get an oil residue on them and cause a host of ignorant problems including no focus or focus confirmation.

Sanyo digital camera showing lens error 1114 or 112


Hi.

If your Sanyo digital camera is not starting and you get lens error 112 or lens error 1114 prompted on display, that means that the lens is getting stuck, and cannot extend or retract fully. The controller board detects the error on startup, and shuts down after displaying the error message.
This errors usually happen because of dirt, or because the lens mechanis mis damaged in consequence of a shock.

If lens does not retract, try helping the lens back, without putting too much strenght, while you turn off the camera at he same time.
If the lens does not extend, try tapping softly the back of the camera to help lens out, while you turn off the camera at he same time.
If the camera had been exposed to sand or dust, try blowing canned air on the lens.

If this does not work, the lens assembly must be taken apart completely and re-assembed, and for that you need a camera repair shop.

Also call the number listed on the owners manual to get support from the manufacturer.

Turn camera on, lens comes out, goes back in ,and says lens error.


try these fixes

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 using rechargeables, and they're more than a year old, consider purchasing new rechargeable batteries as they may not be providing sufficient power to startup the camera. If new batteries didn't work, try pressing and holding the 'Function' or OK button while turning the camera on.

2.If the camera's batteries ran down completely while the its lens was still open, the camera may show a lens error or not start properly when new batteries are installed. Remove the memory card and keep it removed, then install the new batteries. When you turn the camera on with the card removed it may come back to life, as this triggers a reset in some cameras. Error E30 means that you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in the SD card and turn it on one last time

3.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 back into their slots.

4.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 fix 3 as a means to provide extra power to help to this fix. Reinsert the cable only after tapping the camera.

I cannot turn my camera on.


If The Lens Is All The Way Out And Wont Go Bak In Thats Why The Camera Wont Turn On Not The Other Way Around. Try Very Gently Turning The Lens And Turning The Camera On At The Same Time Till U Hear A Click That Should Do The Trick.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN WHEN THE SCREEN IS BLACK AND SAYS E18 AND MAKES A VERY STRANGE NOISE AND i CAN'T TAKE A PICTURE.USUALLY IF I TURN IT ON AND OFF SEVERAL TIMES THIS WILL GO AWAY


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 ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.
