Lens error restart

Dear sir, I was on holiday after taking beautiful pictures my camera for no known reason went on lens error restart ,I did not drop or damage the camera in any way it is in mint condition and i take very good care of it.I did not want to interfere with it when this happened so i waited to give it to a service center to assess.They assessed it and gave me an exorbitant amount and told me that the whole lens needs to be replaced .When i took the camera back from them to get a second opinion i found that the retraction and extention of the lens working normally but the camera had no picture and could not take a picture yet prior to this it was taking excellent pictures and just stopped with a lens error shutdown.I did not in any way damage the camera.What i would like to know if they caused any damage to the camera when they assessed the camera because the problem with the lens was resolved without any repairs by them.The lens error shutdown is understood to be a common problem. Please advise so that i can be treated in a fair manner.If they caused another problem due to negligence when assessing the camera for repairs it would be unfair for me to pay the price. Thank you

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Hi Rania. If you go with a place that knows what they're doing, the camera will be perfect again, sometimes even better as they'll service it all up at the same time. A site that a lot of people go to for help with the Canon Powershots is: www.camerasandparts.com They just do service exclusively on the powershots and they are wonderful if you need help with one of these. Try them, it runs $89 for everything with the repair and the service for the camera included. They're the place if you need help with a model like this. Good luck.

When I turn on my camera D50 it will not take pictures. In the top screen a F- - just flashes?? Can anyone help? Thanks!!


The F-- error indicates that teh contact between the lens and the camera is broken. I would try taking the lens of and putting it bask on agein. Cleaning the gold plated connectors on the lens ( and camera). U can use a q-tip and jus a drop of rubbing alcohol. If this does not work. The camera an lens should be serviced by a proffecional.

Dropped camera now lens wont close. It says lens


Hi,
Remove the batteries and insert new batteries . Sometimes this may work but in your case the lens is stuck inside, or it will have been damaged . Nothing can be done other than taking to service center to get it repaired .

Hope this helps .

This is probably THE single 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
