What does an Lens Error 0x0311 mean - Digital Cameras


Answers :

It means the lens is stuck and/or broken and will not extend. I just had a camera a few days ago with that very same problem. If you are feeling techno-savvy you can open it and replace/free the parts in the lens rings that are malfunctioning, or you can just get a new camera.

It's kind of hard to explain, but basically there are little plastic runners in the lens tube and when they get jammed or broken the lens will not rotate hence will not extend hence is broken.
