Re: ugh i dropped the camera on the side of the lens
Call the repairs center at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1. There is nothing that you can do yourself to fix it. Your lcd might even says "lens error". Even if it doesn't go ahead and call them and send it in.

to the beach yesterday, by the end of the night my camera gave me this
error: "lens error, restart camera". The lens would no longer come out.
I figured sand got stuck within the lens, so I did the following:
1. Turn camera up-side-down (with lens facing down) 2. Gently tap the sides of the camera (to loosen particles in lens) 3. Turn camera on 4. The lens will eventually come out 5. Gently tap the sides of the lens 6. Turn camera off (continue tapping side of lens as it retracts)
I turned the camera on and off a couple of times to ensure I removed all sand particles from the camera.
If the lens is stuck out then you will find it is usually one of a few reasons.
1. Check the batteries. (obvious I know). 2. The camera has been dropped or knocked. 3. The camera has grit or dirt in the lens mechanism.
Providing the batteries are ok then 2 and 3 usually mean a professional repair. The lenses tend not to be something that the average home user can remove and take apart. The cost of repair also might be more than the camera value so you will need to find a good repair shop near you and get a quote.
OK you are probably going to think I am loony giving you this advise But No I am completely sane!
Get a can of compressed air OR acces to a compressor at your local garage Get them to fit the triggered air blower tool to it.
Blow around the lens in all the extension joins the firmly slap it in the palm of you hand with the side of the camera making contact with you palm. Do the procedure two or 3 times and inbetween the slaps turn it on to activate the lens mechanism. I have now fixed about 80 of these cameras with this method. I obtained the fix from Sony who charge $90 to do exactly the same. Keep at it as it will eventually work. One tip, make sure the battery is charged before you do this.
ok if your lans is kinda pointing to one side (like My) you cinda have to pray lol it worked for me love ya god and than you hit your lans to straitin it out and than it will turn on but tha lans still wont go back in so you have to hit it s cupple time down **** so it will go back but not hard dont hit it bck in just kinda lusint it a bit and than turn on the camera and it shuld taike in the lans.
Yea, I'm guessing this is not a do it yourself'r kinda project. As for taking camera stuff apart it requires tiny screw drivers. Sometimes small pointy pen/pocket knife blades work. But you're more than likely going to strip the heads out.
Over the eons, I have taken some cameras apart, but confess that I've never put them back together again.
This might be an E18 lens error issue. Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. Have already fixed several cameras with this problem by using these methods:
