    If the lens does not extend/retract properly, then most likely, something is stuck in the zoom gears. If it does extend, and you hear a high pitched buzzing type noise, then this is the focus motor, and the gears are out of alignment, or there is debris in there.

    The fix requires removal of the lens, and checking, cleaning, and making sure the gears are ok. Whatever you do, don't pull, pry, or tug at the lens. This won't help.

    You can send me an e-mail if you'd like some info specific to your camera. Just google my username, and you'll find my website.

    Also, what model Exilim do you have?
    | Canon 5D, XTi, EOS-3 | Canon 17-40mm f/4L | Canon 85mm f1.8 USM | Canon 50mm f1.4 USM | Canon 28mm f1.8 USM | Canon 580EX II | Elinchrom Skyports | Vivitar 283 + 285 flashes...Alien Bees...etc. | Mamiya M645 1000s | Canonet Junior, Bell & Howell Dial-35 + too much other gear...

    Lens Error

    Can you please tell me how to fix the error? I'm pretty good with this stuff, though the workings of a telescoping lens are unfamiliar to me.

    Thanks.
