Hi.I have a Canon G9 camera.Here's the problem. I dropped the camera few days ago,I tried turning the camera on but powers off with the lens extended and with notification LENS ERROR RESTART CAMERA . Please tell me what my options are,pls and thanks
Your best bet would be to have it serviced by a professional to get you going again, those are really excellent cameras. If you'd like to have it repaired, you can have the G9's repaired here: www.camerasandparts.com This place just does the Canons exclusively, they don't work on any other models. The best part, the work through them is superb and they are not expensive at all. It runs $89 for parts / labor on the repair and the servicing for the camera included. Plus they cover shipping back which we like. The best part is the work through them just excellent on the Canons, they'd be the place if you want to have it fixed. Hope that helps you with it, all the best. That's a great little camera.

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:
