Question about Canon PowerShot G10 Digital Camera
An error was detected while the lens was in motion, and the power has been automatically turned off. This error can occur if you hold the lens while it is in motion or you operate it in a location with excessive dust or sand in the air. Try turning the power back on, and resume shooting or playback. If this message continues to display, contact your Canon Costumer Support Help Desk as there may be a problem with the lens.This is what the manual says.
It could be you are using a conversion lens adapter, that is not correct installed. (or a different one than was ordered in the manual.) Canon has lots of different of these adapters, that only slightly differ, depending for what model they are.Make sure you have the one that is for the G10. (LA-DC58K)
Could be the ring that has to be removed to place the conversion lens adapter is not placed correct. Or even something as one grain of sand, sifting in the housing, can block the lens barrel, from coming out. If last time you used the camera was on the beach, i think I know where the sand could have come from. (it happened me once)
If you can't be sure the lens can move free, you should go to a Canon Costumer Support Help Desk as told in the manual.
