Question about Canon PowerShot SD630 Digital ELPH / IXUS 65 Digital Camera
I dropped my camera on the floor when it was on. It's a Cannon Powershot SD630 Digital Elph. Now the lense is stuck out and it wont take any pictures. It keeps telling me "lens error,restart Camera" . How do i restart it if it wont let me go to the menu or anything. Is there anything I can do at home to fix it?
What you are seeing is a generic message that means there is some sort of problem with the lens, yours is due to the impact damage when you dropped it.
A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.
Don't bother trying to send the camera to Canon if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.
I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.
We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.
Hope this helps,
