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 ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

My Window 7 can not detect my PowerShot SD800 IS from USB. I can not using Canon software detect camera


Thanks for contacting FixYa Technical Support.

I am not sure if you have attempted to run Canon's most current driver update for the Canon PowerShot SD800 IS, but here is the link for that driver.

Canon PowerShot SD800 IS Drivers for Windows 7

This driver is for Windows 7, 32 bit and 64 bit systems.

What you may want to try first, is to disconnect your camera from your PC, install this driver update and then connect the PowerShot and see if it will detect it.

Driver updates are usually the first steps to take in troubleshooting device connection issues with PCs.

Hope this helps!

Canon SD800 will not turn on.


If youve had it under a year you can try sending it back for warranty and see if they can fix it. However their warranty service sucks if its not actually something wrong with the camera. Maybe try and find a local store that fixes cameras and see if they can clean it out?
