    Same problem. It just goes to "Press the reset switch" as soon as you put a tape in. It works fine as a USB camera. I bought a new battery, but that wasn't the problem. I don't have an AC adapter, so I don't know if that would do anything different. Maybe someone who has the adapter could post that info. I saw on another board that someone suggested it might not be getting enough power.

    Same problem -- constantly getting the "Push the reset button switch".  It sometimes works after I remove the battery and put it back on.  Once I re-charged the battery and replaced it and it worked for awhile.  This happens every time I switch tapes.  Pretty random...

  • compleks Dec 16, 2008

    i get this message every once in a while. when i start the camcorder with taping mode on (the red camera on the scroll wheel), it feels like the tape is trying to eject while the case is closed. its like a light push against my hand at the top of the camera. and then the message pops up. yea it is annoying and completely random.

    it usually works when start it up in playback mode (the green play button the scroll wheel) and then put it in taping mode while its on. that's how i got mine to work, im not sure if it will work for you but its worth a try.


  • wyantamy Jan 02, 2009

    I've used this camera for 4 years without issue until this month. It started out with a couple random reset switch messages to full blown constant messages. Now I can't even get it to register that there's a tape in it for playback. Help!!!!

I have a Canon PowerShot A430 camera. When I turn it on, the lens doesn't open and it shuts off. The message on the screen says " Lens error, restart camera." Please advise. Thanks


Hi,

The Lens Error is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
You can reset the Camera back to factory default by performing the following steps:
Press the power button.
Press and hold the MENU button for more than 5 seconds. Default Settings will get displayed.
Use the arrow buttons to select OK and press the FUNC./SET button. This will reset all the settings back to factory deafult.
This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for contacting FixYa
