Lens Error My daughter and I just got back from a trip to St Croix. We stayed at a resort on the beach and also went snorkeling. The camera was exposed to sand and water. While snorkeling we had the camera in a zip-loc bag so I do not believe it got water in it but I know that while on the beach it may have gotten sand on it. Now the lens won't retract and we are getting a "lens error 12". Any suggestions? Thanks

Olympus D-435 Our camera has been working fine until last week when we started getting this error message - memory full on a blue screen when we had taken only one photo (and deleted all previous photos). Thinking there was a problem with the memory card, we removed it and used only the camera's internal memory which worked for a short while - allowing us to take 12 shots - but now it will only let us take 1 shot before giving us the error message. Is there anything I can do? Many thanks


You can try updating the firmware of the camera since this is not a problem with the memory card its with the camera itself you can check Olympus web site for software update on this.Hope that helps....... ... Digital Cameras

I have a Nikon Coolpix L14 and all of a sudden, when I turn it on, the lens moves in and out while making a strange noise until a "Lens Error" message comes on the screen. I tried replacing the batteries, turning it off and on, taking out the memory card, and cleaning the lens. The first time I replaced the batteries, it worked...until the next time I used it and the screen was completely blurred. Then, I had the original problem with the "Lens Error" message.

Kodak v610 camera (easy share) My 10 year son was using our v610 camera and the following error message E45 (please see user manual) appeared on the screen. We were unable to switch the camera off and therefore the shutter remained open. The shutter will only close if I remove and replace the battery and when I turn the camera back on the shutter remains open and the same error message returns. I have checked the manual and it doesn't mention this problem. thank you jane

I take a few shots and get the Error message 30 on my 50D- Always need to shut it off and then back on.

When I turn it in, the lens will go out as normal, but the message will appear and it will turn off. The shutter only closes halfway. I think it is jammed. Is there anyway to fix th
