Having problems with your Olympus Camedia C-730 Digital Camera ?

Lense error I get a lense error message. My lense is shut open on my Olympus 730 and the camera keeps shutting off

Answers :

I had the same problem with my Nikon coolpix camera. Fortunately, I found a very strange solution from google.com :
\015\012"Hit the camera on the palm of your hand a few times (hit the side of the camera , not the lens). Try it slow at first, if it does not work try to hit it harder (but gently). "
\015\012I'm not sure if it will work with an Olympus camera and if this is a permanent solution ( a co-worker borrowed and lost my camera after a few months!!) . Also, there is a risk that you will permanently damage the camera. If your camera is under warrany send it for repair.
\015\012Good luck!

Canon Powershot SD450 E18 problem: The camera lense would not open and reported error code E18 on power-up and then would shut down.
