Lens error M627-30

\015 It appears as soon as I switch on the camera.\015\012After the camera switches off.\015

Answers :

Fix #1: Remove the batteries from the camera, wait\015\012a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably\015\012rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on.

Fix #2:\015\012Remove the batteries, then remove the memory card. Then install the new\015\012batteries, when you turn it on it should come back to life. Error E30\015\012means you don't have a memory card installed, so turn it off, slip in\015\012the memory card and turn it on one last time.

Fix #3:\015\012Insert the cameras AV cable, and turn the camera on in picture review\015\012mode. Have no idea why this would work, except that quite a few people\015\012have reported some success with it.

Fix #4:\015\012Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling.\015\012Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the\015\012power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus\015\012while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide\015\012pins in their slots.

Fix #5: Blow compressed\015\012air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out\015\012any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other\015\012variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or\015\012sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).

Now\015\012we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in\015\012conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care\015\012when conducting the following two fixes.

Fix #6:\015\012Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the\015\012intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other\015\012variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of\015\012your hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method.\015\012HOWEVER, there is also some potential for damaging or dislodging\015\012internal components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables,\015\012or cracking LCD screens.

Fix #7: Try forcing\015\012the lens. More people have reported success with this method than with\015\012any of the other methods. HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for\015\012damaging your camera by using this method. Variations include gently\015\012pulling, rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the\015\012power button. Attempt to gently straighten or align the barrel if it's\015\012crooked or twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps\015\012around the lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel\015\012that has the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in\015\012is NOT recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of\015\012the above, listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide\015\012pins may have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click,\015\012immediately stop and try the camera.\015\012\015\012\015\012

\015\012rating the solution is appreciated...\015\012

\015\012have a nice day

Lens Error I fell while holding my camera. The lens was open at the time and when I got up I turned the camera off. I then turned it back on to check it and the lens opened and immediately closed with the "lens error" on the screen. I can turn it off and on and the lens will always open but closes as soon as it has opened with the lens error on the screen. The shutter opens but closes also, like the lens. Can this be fixed?
