Lens error on Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H400

Having a “Lens error” message display on the camera’s LCD display indicates a problem with the camera lens mechanism. Usually it is because the entry and exit of the lens mechanism jammed, for example, had fallen, once when the lens is stuck out and vice versa when the lens is pushed entry and so on. But if you have never experienced physical violence usually only lubricating plastic gears that are already dry.

Usually, simply switching the camera Off then On again is enough to correct this problem. Or try to remove the batteries for 5 seconds, and then plug it in again. If that doesn’t work attempt to give the camera a good jolt. A shake of the camera will often realign the mechanism or knock off dirt.

If this does not help, then we regret the camera must be sent to Sony Service department as there are no user serviceable parts on Sony Cyber-shot DSC-H400 cameras.
