Question about Canon PowerShot SD880 IS Digital Camera
The camera was dropped, The lens is supposed to go back in once the camera is shut off but it now does not, the lens appears to be slightly canted and jammed. Does anyone know I can fix it? any videos or manuals? I can take it apart but I don't really want to wing it. Thanks any help is appreciated!!
Here are troubleshooting steps for a lens error. Since the camera was dropped, and the lens is canted, suggest proceeding directly to Fix 7. And here's a video summary of the steps.

If the lens does not extend/retract when the camera is powered on, then lens assembly is damaged.
Unfortunately, such Canon SX100 (and the SX110 too) has a very fragile lens assembly, and it's damaged very easily. Most of the times the internal gears, the plastic post guides and the motor are damaged at the same time, so the only solution is to replace the whole lens assembly.
The lens replacement requires a qualified camera repair technician, unless you want to try in repair it yourself, which requires tools (scredrivers, soldering iron, desoldering tool, magnifier glass with light, etc).

Canon SD870 IS. Lense Error. Would not retract on power-down. Lense error reported when retracting zoom.
Noticed the rectangular frame about the lens was rotated off center. Manually rotated (squared-up) the lens rectangle while repeatedly powering the camera on and off. Modulating the power allowed for easier rotation of the rectangular lens frame.
Once the lens frame was square with the body of the camera, the lens completely retracted on power-down, and also zoomed in/out without error.

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

A stuck lens cover is a fairly common problem, but it is normally easy to fix. A single grain of sand jamming the cover mechanism is normally the culprit, and you want to try to dislodge it. There are many non-invasive techniques that people have come up with to accomplish this. Some may be seen on this blog article. You can also open the lens barrel up to fix the covers, but only as a very last resort. The article also gives examples for this type of procedure.

Testimonial: "Hey thanks heaps! My favourite little camera is now working well again."
hi.if you are telling both viewfinder and lcd are blank or black the problem is in the shutter that you found inside of the lens are not open.sometimes the cuase of the is humidity or moist goin inside of the shutter thats why it will not work properly or stuck up.if you can open your camera and adjust the shuuter from lens unit its better .but if not its better you bring to service center and request for adjustment.
by the way try also to reset your camera to default setting maybe it will help you.
