It seems like, after an unfortunate landing in the sand, my camera's lens gears are stuck, and I have the dreaded lens error: lens will not retract, and is stuck half way. I've tried some approached mentioned on websites such as http://www.e18error.com/
, but to no avail. I am hesitantly considering to open the camera and dig my way in to find and clean the gears manually, but as a last resort.
Is there any other way I could solve this error that people here know of?
