Hi, The Lens Error is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option. Performing a manual power reset Turn off the camera. Remove the battery pack. Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds. Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds. Reinsert the battery pack. Turn on the camera. You can reset the Camera back to factory default by performing the following steps: Press the power button. Press and hold the MENU button for more than 5 seconds. Default Settings will get displayed. Use the arrow buttons to select OK and press the FUNC./SET button. This will reset all the settings back to factory deafult. This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.
"ERR" doesn't indicate any specific error, but usually tends to be something only a technician can fix. Sometimes, you can make it go away by fully pressing the shutter release, but chances are that it will reappear at some point. Take it to a reputable camera shop, or send it to Nikon if you're still under warranty.
(The "r09" message is not an error, but an indicator of how many images you can take-nine in this case-before the camera has to pause for processing. This usually applies to burst-mode photography, and varies depending on how fast your CF card can transfer images.)
You can reset all your settings and clear errors by removing the battery pack and also under the camera is an access screw to get to a button battery or two. The type of screw you use a dime or quarter to open. With the battery pack out, remove the button batteries and leave all those out for several minutes and then with the batteries still out, activate the On switch for your camera and leave it in the full on position for 30 seconds. That should drain off all residual power from the circuit board inside. You will have to reset everything, such as your personal settings in Tools and the time and date setting. All of those user set items, but your error message should clear too. If you get the error message again, right away, after reinstalling the batteries and battery pack, then you have damaged the Flash Unit... but I doubt that. Canon makes a good camera and I don't think what you describe would cause that problem.
