SOURCE: lens error restart camera but

Hi

Your lens is defective needs to be cleaned, repaired or replaced. If you got sand in the gears it will definitely jam up the lens! Sometimes you can tear down the lens and clean out the sand, and if none of the gears are damaged the lens will then work properly again.

There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

I know this because I OWN ONE that charges a reasonable price to do the repair! (Google 'darntoothysam')

Just let us know if we can help! Good luck from

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 ...

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:

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

SOURCE: lens error, restart camera canon powershot

The best thing to do is to first try restarting the camera. Do not push or pull on the lens as this will often cause other issues. Do not blow air in the lens as this generally moves any dirt or dust to the back and it sits on your imaging sensor, you'll end up with poor photos after that. The best thing to do is to have it serviced so it is fixed correctly and working the way it should be. The site that is great for the Powershot Models is: www.CamerasAndParts.com They only specialize in these Powershots and they have your exact lens error problem right on the site. Try them for help. They tend to be the best deal plus they're service is wonderful. You'll pay $89 for the repair, all of the service for that model and the return shipping back to you included with them. They'd be the place for help with this one, best of luck.

How to reset the lens cover "leaves" on a canon powershot elph 330 HS camera. I took the cover off to remove a dent and the leaves went flying. :(


Take all the bits you can find to your local service centre, and be prepared for a bill greater than the worth of the camera.

My Canon PowerShot SX230 HS cuts off after 10-14 seconds of recording. A yellow exclamation mark appears and shuts the video off. A green light flashes and says the word busy at the bottom of the screen....


There may be other causes for your experience but I am thinking of two and these are:
  1. The memory card - video recording is best achieved with a card of Class 4 or higher. Anything less will pose problems.
  2. Settings on camera auto-timeout - check to make sure the auto-time out is set to default.

Can I fix a broken flash on the powershot sx230 HS?


Doubtful. It sounds like it's physically damaged and will need to go in for repairs. There could be an issue with wiring broken or circuit board damage.

Lens cover will not close


YES, BUT THAT IS A JOB THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE PROFESSIONALLY, DUE TO THE ALIGNMENT OF THE LENSES AND THE POWER DRIVE FEATURES. IF YOU GOOGLE CANON POWERSHOT A620 REPAIR SERVICE, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET A PRICE QUOTE BEFORE YOU SEND THE CAMERA IN FOR REPAIR. IS IT JUST THE COVER THAT NEEDS REPLACED OR THE LENS? THE COVER MIGHT JUST NEED TO BE CLEANED GOOD WITH AIR TO START WORKING AGAIN? WORTH A TRY. IF I CAN HELP MORE, REPLY TO:
