Make sure the batteries are good and in right. If it keeps doing it you might be having a problem with your lens opening up and staying open, I had a camera that did that to me, and the lens had been knock and wouldnt open properly, check that out. The lens was out of range from normal and would automatically shut down

Zoom error I turned my F470 camera on and received a "zoom error" bar across the screen. The lense does not move outwards after I turn the power on, nor does the plastic sliding screen close when I turn the camera off. The lense is exposed whether or not the camera is on or off. The lense does not make any sounds when I turn the camera on, but I hear (what I think) are the gears when I turn the camera off. When the camera is on, the screen is working, but the image is blurry. I tried other poste

Camera was on, working fine. When powering off, telescoping lens did not retract so lens remained extended just a bit with lens cover open. Waited a few minutes, turned it back on and I get the "access" display message then the beeps and (turn power off and back on) message. While off, I have removed the battery, replacing it with a fully charged spare and it still does this. The lens tries to telescope a little bit and retracts a touch, but I can't get the camera out of this mode. Can it be res

Lens Jam My G6 turned on accidentally in its case and the lens tried to extend but was forced to stop. Now, when I turn the camera on, the lens makes a ratcheting sound and gets halfway before stopping. It beeps and says "LENS" on the top LCD screen, before powering off. I've been quoted £160 just to have it looked at which is half the value of the camera! Does any one know how to open one of these up (safely) and what to do when you get inside to fix the problem?! Many thanks

This is a common issue if the lens cap is on, I will assume it is not so something is binding the lens. It is probably sand or a misaligned lens. Try grabbing the lens barrel as it extends, you will need to remove the outer barrel to do this. If does ... Digital Cameras
