  1. If your camera is still under warranty, the best thing you can do is to take it to the nearest official repair shop and they should fix it for free. \015\012
  2. If your camera is out of warranty, or if the manufacturer refuses to repair it for free (happens sometimes if for example they suspect the camera has not been treated properly) you can try the following methods to repair it yourself. \015\012
  3. First, make sure your camera has fresh batteries and it is in recording mode. \015\012
  4. Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for a couple of minutes, then put them back in and turn the camera on. \015\012
  5. Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function fine. \015\012
  6. Another method is to tap the padded USB cover part on a hard surface, for example, a desk. Sounds simple, but it works. \015\012
  7. Try forcing the camera lens. Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if the camera was dropped while the lens was extended. Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on. \015\012
  8. If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts again, do the following. Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on. \015\012
  9. Another version of this fix would be to pull and twist on the largest ring of the lens while turning the camera on. Listen for a "click". If at first the focus seems to be off, turn the camera on and off and take lots of pictures, close ups and distance. Focus should slowly start improving.
\015\012I repair these all the time and if these steps don't work then a service center like my self would have to repair it sorry for your problem and I hope this fixes your issue let me know if I can be of any further assistance.
If its under 1 year they repair it for free, thts what the tech support guy just said.

Lens Error I recently had a problem with my Casio QV-R4... every time I'd turn it on, the lens would retract and I'd get a "LENS ERROR" message on the screen. I talked to customer support and they told me that Installing the new version of their firmware, v1.01 would fix this problem. I've since installed the new firmware version, but I am still receiving the lens error. Has anyone else encountered this problem? Does anyone know how to fix it? Please help!!!


As solutions 1 & 2 indicate, lubing the gears works!! This is a great camera, so I hope all of the QV-R4 owners try this. I may become a maintenance item for the camera.\015\012 \015\012I have a few a ... Casio QV-R4 Digital Camera

I have a Sony Cybershot DSC W100. I accidentally dropped it and now it says 'Access' and the lens opens and closes three times then beeps and says, 'Turn the power off and on again'. I have done this and it still doesn't work. I tried to initialize the settings - that didn't work either. I even played around with the lens some, and that didn't fix it.
