Turn camera on error message keeps popping up lens error, restart camera. Have restarted but still keeps coming up. Can you help please Thanks David

Some problem with the lens.
Look at the lens as it comes out, and listen as well. If it does not come out at all, then internal problems exist.
If there are noises, problems are inside.
If the lens comes out but is not at a straight angle, you may be able to fix it by carefully pulling on it as it extends.

If nothing else, sell it on Ebay as a repair camera.
List it like this:

Hello -
Try replacing the batteries. If that doesn't work, try to blow out around the lens - hopefully with dry compressed air. This can sometimes happen if dirt gets in the lens mechanism.
If it's still under warranty, you can email Canaon at:
Good luck!

Lens won't retract

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.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try:

A430 camera

I went to the beach and when it came back, it was like ur's, so it might be some tiny piece of dirt and sand stuck in the lens somewhere.
