Question about Canon PowerShot A810 16 Megapixel Digital Camera - Silver

Lens error shut down automatically

I went and walked my dog, took a couple pictures and then put my camera back. Then, I sat down at my desk, looked at the pictures, and set the camera back down on my desk, (Did NOT drop it whatsoever) About an hour later I pick up the camera to take a look at the pictures before I put them on my computer, and I get the "Lens error, please restart Camera" error. What do I do? I still have the one year warranty, but that requires a proof of purchase receipt thing, and I got it online on boxing day from my dad, so I don't have that... What can I do?

Ask your dad for the purchase details. I had exactly the same error message on my canon compact camera and had to send it to be repaired.

Camera has to be repaired. The lens assembly with the focusing, iris setting, zooming is fubar and needs help.

Until resolved you will continue to get that error message.

My screen went black after i took a picture


It's very possible that the problem is that the shutter is stuck, which is a known Canon issue on the powershot cameras, mainly on the S2 and S3 models, which it happens after some time (weeks or months) thata camera is not used.

Unfortunately the repair of it requires a complete disassembly of the camera, including the lens, fix it, and then put back together everything.

Definitely requires the skills, tools and experience to do it, so it's recommended that a professional camera repair center is performing this type of repair.

If you look for a reliable and low cost repair service for it, you can look in ebay for such repair services.

Example, look for seller ID Great_items_2004 or with the keywords "Shutter black S3".

Camera turns on BUT then get "lens error restart camera" msg


This is probably THE 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

E18 lens will not come out


E18 Error Fixed Canon PowerShot A520 My lense would not come out and would give me the E18 error and shut down.

I just pressed the power button on and held it down while extending the telescopic zoom lense. It made a horrible sound but the next thing I knew the lense extended out and the camera worked again!

Olympus technical support you need to speak to. Don't tell them about taking a picture of the dog. Cats are OK. Dogs wreck cameras -;)

Pentax Optio T10 turning off immediately


My optio t10 did basically the same thing...turned on, lens goes out, then automatically shut off. I took the advice of a solution listed here for another problem...hit the camera. For whatever reason it worked.

Error code E:61:00


For DSC-W17: The lens extended (normally I thought), but would not zoom. I shut it, and it was attempting to extract-retract, but shut with the lens rather extracted. Putting constant gentle pressure helped the lens to retract while shutting, even though it was attempting to extract again for 2-3 seconds.

Harder pressure however (about 1/2 kilo strength on wooden desk) made the lens totally unoperational... :(
