Canon Compact Lens Error


I tried removing the battery, that did not work. Posted May 5, 2014 12:06 pmBjorn EnemarkNikon Coolpix, Using just a little force made the lens retract: a slap on the back of the camera with the palm of my hand patience is needed, and sometimes i can't do it unless i'm sitting on a desk with a flat surface. Anyone else out there have any success by applying a tiny bit of oil around the lens barrel? navigate here

I never would have tried this!!! This has to be THE most common failure mode for a digital camera, a stuck lens, jammed lens, or a malfunctioning lens. I guess it's because I have a silicone covering for the camera that while it protects it from scratches, it doesn't help with the dust particles. Thanks for the info. http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Canon Powershot Sd750 Lens Error

Knowing how much the fix is, I decided to try to fix it myself. i have had the problem where the lens was half stuck out and i had the 3 beeps, i worryingly pushed the lens back into the camera. February 5, 2008 at 9:58 AM teenynz said...

Due to the common nature of this problem, it seems that Canon has dropped the numerical marking of this error in newer cameras, and is now using the term "lens error". the cylinder with the smaller diameter wouldn't completely retract and the picture was blurry. Note that I was never able to fix my L10 camera illustrated here. Canon Powershot A630 Lens Error Good luck!

I attemptedsome of the other methods but nothing reliable happened. Canon Powershot Sd1100 Lens Error And yes, the cost of fixing usually exceeds the value of the camera. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism.

Tonight when I found it, I tried all your tricks (cleaning around lens with thin piece of plastic, compressed air, turning the lens with pliers) and the lens is working again. When I got home, and tried to turn the camera to move the pictures to my PC, I got an error: "Lens error, restart camera" The lens doesn't even start to The lens does not retract.The logo is still there but very hard to see as the screen seems to be dark but it is there and freezed.So switch back to OFF A colleague at work dropped her new camera and the lens stuck in the out position.

Hi, I write you from Argentina. May 31, 2008 at 8:59 PM Summer said... Again, while doing any of the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may have reseated in their guide slots. Also, you shouldn't open the camera to clean the sand if you don't feel confident in doing so.

I'm re-charging the battery (it had sitting a while) and who knows? My wife's new Nikon Coolpix L10 had a jammed zoom lens and 'lens error' message since she dropped it in sub zero temperatures the day after our wedding. I tried ebay but no luck, any help would be appreciated. If you hear this click, immediately stop and try the camera.

I had only used it twice. We bought it from Best Buy and made sure to get the 4 year warranty plan. jonno,Take a look at this. The lens mechanism on compact cameras is one of the most vulnerable points, and it can get damaged even under normal use.

I can give more details if anyone needs them but you do need to be able to unsolder a couple of wires and the battery terminals.In any case the lens assembly This worked for me.
