Lens Error My daughter and I just got back from a trip to St Croix. We stayed at a resort on the beach and also went snorkeling. The camera was exposed to sand and water. While snorkeling we had the camera in a zip-loc bag so I do not believe it got water in it but I know that while on the beach it may have gotten sand on it. Now the lens won't retract and we are getting a "lens error 12". Any suggestions? Thanks

Lens error When I try to zoom the lens, it comes up with a lens error. We just got back from a trip to the beach, where my daughter accidentally kicked up sand while she was running toward me and I had the camera ready to take her picture. When I power up the camera I can hear a gritty sound when the lens extends. I've cleaned up the rest of the camera, but don't know how to get the sand out of the lens housing.

While at the beach, someone threw a frizbee at my wife and she dropped the camera in the sand. We were careful as we could be picking it up to avoid entrance of sand into the camera. It worked fine until the next day and the lens opened and stuck. I opened the case to remove and sand that entered the camera. While removing the flash it went off and now the camera doesn't even turn on. I assume something touched and blew a fuse. Is this fixable and if so where do I start?

Camera stalling The problems started after using my camera on a windy day at the beach 3weeks ago. After a few days, the lens started getting stuck, and wouldn't come out, or if it did, didn't focus properly. This problem was intermittent.

Lens Error My Coolpix Digital Camera suddenly got stuck with a "lens error" - it seems as though the zoom is stuck. When I turn it on, the zoom goes in & out, then the lens closes down & I get the error message on my digital screen.

Lens spring/s A couple of weeks ago I got the dreaded lens error. In my case it was probably due to sand. I took the camera apart and when I came to disassembling the lens - the spring popped and fell on the floor - as I picked it up it caught in the carpet and I ruined it. So my question is where do I get a replacement without sending the whole camera back to Canon? Also is there 2 springs, as there seems to be hooks for 2?

Brought my cyber-shot to the beach and had it in a camera case. When I got home it was a little bit moist on the inside of the case, and the lens would not open at all. On the screen it said to power the camera on and off again. There were a few grains of sand around the lens so I gently tapped in and it opened. Now, although it is opening I still cant take pictures. It is still giving me the same message to power it off and back on. Is this fixable?
