    Bought for Christmas 07. Lens is stuck out and won't retract. Says "lens error restart camera" and I would LOVE to restart the camera but nothing is working on the camera at all. Have read numerous reviews stating that Canon won't fix the camera if it looks like it's been mistreated which undoubtedly they will same mine does (though hasn't been, just normal wear and tear of a year old camera). Don't even know whether to bother to send it to them. Shops quote £100+ to fix, which makes it just as worthwhile purchasing a new camera. Anyone know how to take the camera apart?! Or have any suggestions!?

This worked for my ixus70:
when you turn the power on, bend the camera with our hands - like twisting it a bit holding on opposite corners. it worked for me, the lens retracted, but it was giving strange noises a long time before, and some time after it died - i now can't use my ixus at all, shows the infamous message "lens error, restart camera".

Hello

No simple fix for this one, sounds like lens block is faulty and probably need to be replaced.

Suggest you contact a local service center for pricing.

SOURCE: how to restart Canon IXUS 70

Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, chances are that your batteries need to be replaced because they are just too worn to properly power the camera. And then, of course, there's the possibility that your camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

How to fix digital camera canon ixus 70 'lens error restart camera'?


Would not recommend opening the camera as the chances are much greater for you causing greater damage. BUT would instead recommend that you try the seven sequential repair step outlined for a lens error in the below listed Related Link "Fixing a Lens Error on a Digital Camera". None of the steps outlined in this link involve opening the camera. and reportedly you should have close to a 50% chance of success with these techniques.

If you cannot repair the lens yourself with the first related link, then consider trying the two 'Digital camera repair" links below for two online digital camera repair businesses.

Lens Error, Restart Camera


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

RE: Canon solution


It is most probably that your hand was in the way when the lens is trying to come out.
Try restarting and make sure no obstructions are in the way of the lens.
