Question about Canon PowerShot A510 Digital Camera
My cameras lens wont go back in........its just out.....it makes a noise as though it wants to go in but it cant.....see what had happened was that it fell on the lens.....the lens was bent half way in....i pulled it out cuz i thought it would help but when i tried to use it.....it didnt work anymore....i cant even view my saved pics or anything
Try this test. While turning camera off apply light pressure to the lens tube to see if there is a point where the gear engages to close the lens fully. This fault indicates broken gear teeth on the outside of the largest diameter barrel. Scrap the lens or use it for parts. A broken gear in the motor gear box will not respond to this test whatsoever. A lens that doesn't fully close, sticks up about a quarter inch and freezes on the Canon logo on power up inidicates the focus mechanism has not fully closed--perhaps a software glitch. The repair involves desoldering plastic ribbon connections and removal of the back panel to gain access to the focusing screw type motor armature to reset the small internal lens so it is flush with the back cover. This lens prevents the lens from completely closing. Reassemble and start taking pictures again.

Well, unless you know your way around those things, i dont think there's any way you can solve this by yourself. chances are some mechanizm inside the camera got broken. Ithink you have no other choice but to take it to repair and hope for the best.
