Yayyyyyyyyy!! But really, they only work for something less than half the people based on the voting, so don't feel too bad. I have tried everything you explain in the site but nothing happens. toodles!- heather May 27, 2008 at 1:28 AM Anonymous said... see this here
Turned it on and then off again and the lens cover finally closed. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods. said... I regret not doing this while on vacation because taking pictures was a real pain when the camera was busted.
I think it's screwed! :( Thank you anyways for the helps! I had a friend that let me try to fix her Canon PowerShot SD600 after it produced a lens error and wouldn't do anything. You especially might consider this if the lens barrel appears obviously damaged, bent, or crooked such as from a fall. One possible thing may be that the battery has worn down through non-use, and can no longer holding a sufficient charge.
holistic, Well good for you! finally, I tried shaking and hitting and pushing. Matias February 18, 2008 at 4:49 PM Camera Repair said...
I had already tried using new batteries, but it was the memory card the whole time.
I use a PowerShot SD600 at work everyday too. Note that this problem applies to ALL cameras with telescopic lens barrel (optical) zoom. Here are some troubleshooting tips for when this occurs: Cleaning If there is any dirt, sand, grit, etc. It is relatively new.
I read your site but tips #1-5 didn't work. https://www.ifixit.com/Answers/View/82057/It+shows+up+a+lens+error+on+camera. Maybe also consider using a small vacuum cleaner around these openings to draw the sand out. Eventually i slowly applied pressure on the focas len, and the zoom mechinism, when it was switching off, and it make a click. OK, and maybe pigs will fly?
It is possible that you get the lens error because your lens is of the track or otherwise stuck. http://jvmwriter.org/lens-error/lens-error-coolpix.html I'm glad I did. Recommend reading the text first (along with the reader's comments and tips section) as these provide additional tips for situations that the video does not. For example, the following blog was started with the intention of advising people NOT to bang on their camera.
After trying 4-5 more times, it seems to be working again.Maybe it's just me, but is seems the rotation mechanism is more or less shared technology between all the manufacturers (looking I tried pulling the lens to keep if from going back in, but that did not work. There is obviously some potential for further damaging your camera with some of these fixes, especially with Fixes # 6 and 7. http://jvmwriter.org/lens-error/lens-error-restart-camera-solution.html I was able to repair my daughter's Sony DSC-W5by gently tapping on the USB plastic covering, while holding the camera upside down.
The camera produces better picture quality than many digital cameras of its size, mainly due to its fair-sized LCD screen and features such as its image stabilization system.

First make sure the camera is working properly with the exception of the LCD.
repair would likely have cost more than the camera and the non-refundable shipping and handling charges from kodak were half the price! Thanks so much for this blog! February 10, 2008 at 10:59 AM Anonymous said... Looked very bad for me.Then I found this posting.
I will not blame you!! While powering up, i pulled the inner cylinder counter clockwise and felt a snap. holistic, I'm sorry to hear that. check over here Like you describe, this reset the pins and now the camera works perfectly again. --Tony January 6, 2008 at 6:16 PM Anonymous said...
The camera turned off with the lens still out and every time you turned it on it would just beep and you would be able to hear the cervo's trying to was about to call manufacturing to have them fix it but id still have to pay shipping and possibly even fees if they dont include lens in their warranty. I have a Coolpix 4800; I jammed the lens in an adapter during digiscoping.
