Question about Cameras
I had the same exact issue.... try putting it on the charger, even if you think it's fully charged... If the light is red, leave it on the charger until it turns green, and then remove the battery for a second and then put it back in the camera before turning it back on..... try turning it on. If it still won't close, put it back on the charger. If the charger is automatically indicating a red light, that means you have exhausted your battery and will nee a new one... they cost about 5-11 dollars on amazon...... hope that helps...

I too am experiencing the same problem with this model. Have you found a solution? I think it could be a firmware problem, but I can not find a update download.

Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem. In any case it could not make it worse Good luck!

I have a camsung L830 that had similar problems and and after I would turn it on, it would beep three times and turn off....but I somehow fixed the lens by turning the camera on and then either pushing/pulling on the part the stickes out and hopefully it might activate the mechanism and it'll go in...that's what happened with mine...the shutters still won't close though. But I'm happy I can use my camera now.

SOURCE: lens error restart camera but
Your lens is defective needs to be cleaned, repaired or replaced. If you got sand in the gears it will definitely jam up the lens! Sometimes you can tear down the lens and clean out the sand, and if none of the gears are damaged the lens will then work properly again.
There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.
I know this because I OWN ONE that charges a reasonable price to do the repair! (Google 'darntoothysam')
Just let us know if we can help! Good luck from

THIS SOUNDS TERMINAL, BUT YOU MIGHT TRY USING CANNED AIR LIKE YOU USE TO BLOW DUST OUT OF YOUR COMPUTER, AND SEE IF IT HELPS ANY. MOST OF THESE CAMERAS ARE MADE WITH THE IDEA THAT THEY WILL NEVER BE TAKEN APART OR OPENED FOR CLEANING ETC. SO, THAT IS THE ONE PROBLEM YOU ARE FACING. I DOUBT IF IT WOULD BE WORTH SPENDING THE MONEY TO SEND IT IN TO BE CLEANED. THAT CAN GET VERY EXPENSIVE IN A HURRY, PLUS TAKE A GOOD MONTH OR MORE FOR THE REPAIR. SORRY, I CAN'T HAVE MORE CHEERY NEWS, BUT THINGS LIKE THIS JUST AREN'T TAKEN INTO ACCORD WHEN THEY MAKE THESE CAMERAS. IF I CAN HELP MORE JUST REPLY TO:
