When switching on the camera, the lens would not come out, it displays the message "lens error,restart camera" . I have switched it on and off several times, taken out the batteries,replaced with new batteries,taken out the memmoriy card and went through the procces several times
Was on a cruise and camera lens would not move. Got the same error message "lens error, restart camera. Could not restart camera. Was about to send camera in to be fixed since I purchased extended warranty. However came to this website and found the solution. Thanks so much! It worked great. This is a money saver and nerve saver also. Great! Great! Great!

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 ...
Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.
I would help to know the error message, but here is what I can tell you.
Having a "Lens error " message display on the camera's LCD display
indicates a problem with the camera lens mechanism. This situation
generally requires that the camera be sent to a Nikon Service
Department for repair. Before doing this however, be sure to check
these situations below:
One possible reason for this error is if the camera is switched on
and the lens unit is prevented from extending. The camera will
struggle for a second to extend the lens, then report the
problem. Inspect the lens for any obvious obstruction, then turn the
camera off, then on again. Usually, simply switching the camera Off
then On again is enough to correct this problem.
Remove and recharge and/or replace the battery. If the error does
not clear up right away, leave the battery out of the camera overnight,
and try again the next day.
hi u need to get the lens repaired the railing in the lessystem is no correct so pleas dont try to doit or push in .... it will be permanent damage ....get to the shot5 the camera is not broken need small fix....
This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
yes, this happened to me, what you have to do is "snap" the lens back in place, if it is bent anyway. if it is not bent and it says lens error, does it the lens come in and out? if not then it is bent if so then there is a hardware error in the switch and you will have to send it to a profesionall. :) hope i could be some help :)
Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned. Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal. More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.
the beeping sounds means that your camera lens is stuck. contact the manufacturer (canon), for a possible solution...or they can even send u a new one. My friend dropped her SD630 and had the same problem...she contacted canon, and sent in her camera to be fixed, but it wasn't fixable, so canon sent her a brand new camera. hope this helps.
