You need to take your camera to the nearest service centre to get it back into action. Whenever there is such an accident (sand, water, fell off) you should take your camera immediately to the service centre.

SOURCE: when i start camera canon s3 is it says lens error

Hello :

The internal coupling of the zoom lens is somewhat fragile, and a slight tap at the wrong time can mess up the system. It could have been something as small as a bump while it was being carried in your pocket. The problem is that you'll have to pay for repairs on it since technically it's not a camera error . It's better to call Canon for help .

PLEASE DON'T FORGET TO RATE !

good luck .

Hi there i like to inform you that its a lens guide pin problem. It is damaged or out of lens guide line. Thats why its stuck. The solution is only replacing the lens. But before that if you want to take a risk then on the camera and give a twist on the lens. Be careful. not much twist, just little. After that turn off / on the camera. If its working then fine. Other wise only the solution is contact with the service center and replace the lens.i am sure your camera lens position like a below mentioned picture.. before all this try to follow those step for luck.


1. Ensure batteries are fully charged.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

How to repair lens of canon s3 is


the lens assembly for S3 is pretty complicate. I suggest you get a professional to handle it. It is usually the stuck shutter or failed motor that caused issues on S2 or S3.

There is a guy on eBay that fix both issues for a low price. Fix is for Canon S2, S3, S5 with stuck shutter. here is the link in case you need: http://www.ebay.com/itm/141414188140 and stuck lens: http://www.ebay.com/itm/141334025954

Hello

Unfortunately a "lens error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

Lens won't retract


This is probably THE 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

Canon PowerShor S3 not functioning


Had my S2 IS now for 3 years , never had a problem with the lens. I'm careful not to bump my lens into anything. I actually bought the lens hood and put a filter on my lens so that no dirt can get into my lens or I can't accidentally bump my lens into anything while i'm using it as it's protected by the adapter and filter.
