SOURCE: lens error, restart camera for canon power shot SX120 IS

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

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, they're worth a try.

SOURCE: Canon Power shot A530 repeatedly displays "change

First make sure that you are using quality batteries, and not "super heavy duty". If so, some of The Canon Powershot A530 and A540 cameras are subject to an advisory recall. Seems that a small spring on the battery compartment door can short out the batteries. Suspect this of yours, in that you mention that your batteries aren't lasting long. If your camera is on the list, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

If you're after a reset button there might be a little hole you can insert a pin into to reset it, look around the camera.

You should also try holding down the power button for a few seconds, it might have a function where doing that does a restart or something similar. Taking the memory card out and turning it on without it is also worth trying.

My canon power shot sx120 1s wont allow me to use the menu, display, functions/settings button. Help


Check all your buttons have retracted all the way out. Sometimes it only takes one stuck (stupid) rubber button to stuff things up :) Check your camera thoroughly even check to see if the card/battery door is fully closed

I dropped my Canon PowerShot SX120 IS Digital Camera and now there is no power. Is there a reset button on the inside or anywhere?


Things to check first for a camera that won't turn on are battery contact points, and micro switches that are located on the battery and memory card doors. Troubleshooting tips on other things that need to be checked may be seen here. These tips won't work for every case, but they're worth a try.

I have a canon power shot A70 digital camera and I cannot get it to turn on even when inserting new batteries.


I don t have a solution, but I got a similar problem. When I install new batteries, they only last for maybe 10 snaps- snaps ,then the "battery" light comes on and camera shuts off. I ve tried several sets of different batteries so its not a battery problem.

Have you tried to reset to original settings in the setup window. I would try that maybe..
If that doesn't work then its probably an issue with your sensor unit which is apart of your lens.
