Question about Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera
I've got a Canon PowerShot SX100 IS; unfortunately, I accidentally dropped it the other day. It was dropped from four feet onto concrete whilst the camera was open and the lens were fully extended. Now, the lens are stuck. I'll turn the camera on, and the lens will try to close; the black screen comes on and says, "Lens error, restart camera," and then the camera shuts off and the lens force back out a little bit.
Any help, please? :)
If the lens does not extend/retract when the camera is powered on, then lens assembly is damaged.
Unfortunately, such Canon SX100 (and the SX110 too) has a very fragile lens assembly, and it's damaged very easily. Most of the times the internal gears, the plastic post guides and the motor are damaged at the same time, so the only solution is to replace the whole lens assembly.
The lens replacement requires a qualified camera repair technician, unless you want to try in repair it yourself, which requires tools (scredrivers, soldering iron, desoldering tool, magnifier glass with light, etc).
