There could be several thing that could cause this problem like a bad lens. the battery might have to be left out of the camera for 24 hr to discharge the battery, a damaged main board. a defective power button. try taking out the memory card to see if that fixes it. repairs on this unit can start any where from 65.00 and up. goto www.digitalcamrepair.com if you need repair service.

How do i restart my cannon ps sd;1000.. the lens is stuck open and i can't shut restart it


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 have a powershot sd 780 is. i dropped it and it now says to restart the camera due to lens trouble. how do i do that? the lense won't close completely.


I put my Canon SD780iS through the washing machine. The lens was extended when I found it. I did not try to turn it on. I removed the battery and memory card, removed the 5 small screws and opened the front and back to expose the insides. Over the next 2 days I dried it out completely with a hair dryer. When I put it back together, I too found that the lens retract cycle was messed up, and while the splashscreen came on, nothing else worked..

I tried your trick of holding the Function/Set button while turning it back on. The camera reset back to factory condition, and it works like a champ. No loss of pictures either! This is one heck of a tough little camera!

PowerShot SD630 lens stuck out, says lens error, restart camera


This is probably THE single 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

My Canon sd 1000 won't power on. Battery is OK.


Check to make sure the batteries you are using have enough strength and volt power, if not it wont work. If they are really cheap, and last only a weak in the remote, they wont power up a camera.

Manually rotating sensor rotor inside camera and cleaning gear fixed the Canon "lens error" for me.
