Canon SD770 IS's lens won't close. I get error message: Lens error, restart camera. Restarting doesn't work. Any advice? Strange that it won't even take photos or playback while the lens is stuck!


Welcome to FixYa

Camera detected this error while moving the lens and cut the power automatically. This error message may appear if you press on the lens while its moving. Make sure that when your going to turn on the camera, your hand or fingers will not block the lens to retrack. Turning on the camera in a dusty or sandy environnment is also one reason for this message to be displayed.
Try to remove the battery and re-insert it, then turn on the camera again. If the message still persist, take the camera to a service center because there may be a problem with the lens.

Please let me know if you have any questions and if this solution was helpful.

Thank you for using FixYa

Camera is saying lens error, please restart


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, or if repair costs close to the value of the camera, they're worth a try.

Lens error,,restart camera.,,the lens wont go back in ,,and the camera will not work,,,its like the lens is stuck,,,can any one help please!!!


Did you try replacing the batteries? If that's not the problem, then it might just be stuck. Look to see if the lens is a little crooked. If it is, try to gently straighten it. If it still won't retract, try to gently push it in as you turn the power on.

How do you fix 'lens error restart camera' I put it in my bookbag. I guess i threw my bookbag around and now i have this "lens error, restart camera." The lens froze halfway and it's staying that way....


First of all, make sure your batteries are fully charged.
If it's still stuck, you could try hold the lens with two fingers, and when you turn the camera on, you **** the lens around just a little bit. Do not use a lot of force, just slightly **** it around. That might unfreeze it.
If that won't help, I'm afraid you're going to have to bring it to a camera workshop.
