\015\012\015\012Thanks for using FixYa. To start with try to blow\015\012compressed air around the lens cover so that if there is any dirt it cleans if\015\012off. You can also stick a thin strip of paper between the lens shutter and the\015\012outer support ring & move it in a way that it clears the debris that\342\200\231s\015\012stuck in there. If still the issue is not resolved then you\342\200\231ll have to replace\015\012the lens assembly & lens mechanism to fix this issue. It is recommended to\015\012be done by a professional. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved\015\012or post a comment for further assistance.

Lense error- can hear lense trying to open, but lense does not come out of the camera body. This is weird because the camera was not dropped/hit/damaged. I used the camera to take night images of a rising moon. It took pics fine, but about an hour later when I tried to turn the camera on to review the pics, I got the lense error as noted above. 4 days later, same problem. The manual doesn't have any troubleshooting for this problem. Any suggestions? Anyone.....? Thanks for your time!
