I have a camera I dropped and got the notorious "lens error."
Probably an easy fix for a camera tech or techy in general.
So, my loss is your gain.
I've read up on this problem and it's quite common.
I paid $299 when this first came out. It includes the camera, charger, and battery.
I can try and pull up an original receipt upon request too from Best Buy.
I am going to just buy a new camera..
