Question about Canon IXUS V2 Digital Camera
If the lens does not extend/retract when the camera is powered on, then lens assembly is damaged.
Unfortunately, such Canon SX100 (and the SX110 too) has a very fragile lens assembly, and it's damaged very easily. Most of the times the internal gears, the plastic post guides and the motor are damaged at the same time, so the only solutio is to replace the whole lens assembly.
The lens replacement requires a qualified camera repair technician, unless you want to try in repair it yourself, which requires tools (scredrivers, soldering iron, desoldering tool, magnifier glass with light, etc).
