These cameras are easily broken by dropping them. Try to free it by hitting it easy at first, not too hard, you don't want more damage to it? Option number two is to take it to a camera shop for repair estimate. They will try what I'm telling you and chage you a lot if it works.

SOURCE: canon powershot A470 problem when i click photo

Go to the menus and find the set to default option.
This should reset the menus and options to original.
Go to the menu section find a setting something like this... such as.. reset all to default or set to factory default or simply RESET.

Check to see if the pictures are saved to the card by taking a picture, then remove the card and play it back in either another camera or use a card reader to read the card.

If these tests shows that no picture was taken or it is all white, then the camera needs repair or has a ccd problem.

Another option is to call Canon Repair at the following page and use the 800 number for calling the repair department.
Canon has a trade-up or trade-in program which is a great way to get another camera at a good price. Canon will allow you to trade in your camera for a reasonable price against a refurbished camera plus a cost which is reasonable. A refurbished camera will come with everything it had when new, and will have been restored to original specifications.

SOURCE: Canon Powershot A470 Screen reads Lense error ,

Hi,

This error occured when lens is prevented from properly extending or retracting.when pressure is applied to the lens or the area surrounding the lens while handling the camera. The error may also be displayed due External shock or liquid, sand & dirt etc. enters the camera.

Avoid applying pressure to the lens and surrounding area:

1) Do not touch Lens while shooting.
2) Make sure the camera is off before the camera is placed back in the case.

If you cannot clear the error code by turning the camera OFF and then ON again then your device need to be repaired.

Rating the solution is highly appriciated...Good Luck.

SOURCE: lens error, restart camera canon powershot

The best thing to do is to first try restarting the camera. Do not push or pull on the lens as this will often cause other issues. Do not blow air in the lens as this generally moves any dirt or dust to the back and it sits on your imaging sensor, you'll end up with poor photos after that. The best thing to do is to have it serviced so it is fixed correctly and working the way it should be. The site that is great for the Powershot Models is: www.CamerasAndParts.com They only specialize in these Powershots and they have your exact lens error problem right on the site. Try them for help. They tend to be the best deal plus they're service is wonderful. You'll pay $89 for the repair, all of the service for that model and the return shipping back to you included with them. They'd be the place for help with this one, best of luck.

WhY photos canon A470? i have a canon powershot A470 camera and there's a problem taking photo.. whenever i take a picture, it's either fully white or have white stripes on the pictures.. i thought it


Perhaps you check the settings. If the camera is on nightshot, or manual, with a long shutter time or wilde open diafragma your pictures are all overblown, or stripes come from lights. Put the camera in automatic. The main dial on the green camera logo, and try again. If this does not work, Please let me know how the settings are on your camera. Success

In my, Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera there is problem during picture taking process.pictures are not clean and many lines appear in photos


Try taking it into a photographic shop (or just Boots) and ask them if they could clean the lens.
If cleaning the lens doesn't work, then you have a faulty camera and if this happens, you will have to get a new one if the warrentyu is out.
