Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
I got a bit of sand in my PowerShot SD1000, and now the lens is stuck open. Whenever I press the power button, the camera beeps and the message "lens error, restart camera" appears, then quickly banishes it. I have tried the banging philosophy: nothing. Please help!
If the sand is in the zoom gears or auto focus gears then the camera would need to be disassembled to remove. Nice thing about this camera is that no soldering is required to take apart. A few small screwdrivers, and some tweezers would be all that is required. Canned air and a needle might also be helpful for removing the sand. If the camera just buzzes then I would say that the sand is in the auto focus gears (the stepper motor will buzz). If the auto focus lens is not fully retracted then the camera lens will not go back in (to prevent the auto focus lens from bumping against the shutter assembly)
