When I turn my camera on or I'm trying to view the pictures from my card, it beeps and on the screen appears: "Lens Error, restart camera". What can I do to solve the issue?

Typically, this error occurs after the camera is dropped with the objective extended. In order to fix it, turn off the camera and check if there is a space between the lens and the lens housing. After that, very easy, press the lens back to its place. After you hear a click, turn the camera back on. This should fix it. If not, use Google search engine to find another solution.
