Having problems with your Casio Exilim Zoom EX-Z80 Digital Camera ?

Lens Error Battery is fully charged but when I start the camera the lens will not come out, it displays "lens error" and shuts down immediately, in less than 30 seconds.


Answers :

I solved the problem with a recommendation Rob posted here on FixYa. Some air pressure blown around the lens and it worked. Thanks, Rob. You're my hero! I almost sent the camera in for repair.

My Panasonic DMC-FH1 stopped working after less than a month of use. It has been treated with care, not dropped or thrown about. It powers up, the lens automatically extends, but it cannot focus. After about 10 seconds the display reads: SYSTEM ERROR (FOCUS). I have tried recharging the battery, and leaving the camera powered down for an extended period. The owner's manual does not reference this problem. Any thoughts? Thanks you, Brian

Lens error CoolPix L11. I switch on the camera The lens comes out. A picture is shown for about 1 second. Then the message Lens Error is displayed. The lens is retracted.

Error-C1 I was on holiday in dusty hot conditions when my second hand camara became unusable. I turned the camara on to take a photo and the zoom lens and shutter became stuck. The screen went blue and 'error-C1' appeared on the screen. Every time I turned it on thereafter the same blue screen came up and it makes a strange mechanical noise when I turn it on.

I have a Cannon Powershot SD600, just got it recently and it worked great, then all of a sudden I noticed the cover lens's that slide over to protect the lens when you shut it off were messed up.
