Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera
Two months into owning my Canon SD600 I took it to the beach. I thought I was being extremely careful, but I somehow must've gotten sand in the lens, because when I try turning it on it says "Lens Error, Restart Camera". I've tried "Dust Off" but to no success. Has anyone had similar problems or has any advice? I almost forgot, the main problem is the lens is stuck in the extended position.
I followed the directions contained in http://www.avh.dds.nl/Fix-Canon-SD600-Lens-Error/ and by disassembling the camera and turning the rotor just a little bit (page 4 of the instructions), it freed up the lens and it is now working perfectly! The camera had been put down on the lens as the lens was retracting and I assume that jammed the retract mechanism. While the camera was open, I blew out whatever dust/dirt was there (didn't see much). The fix took me probably 20-30 minutes, and I am very pleased with myself!

Manually rotating sensor rotor inside camera and cleaning gear fixed the Canon "lens error" for me.
