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:

"lens error, restart camera"


I was facing the same issue and its working now after following
these steps:

Go to this site http://homepage.mac.com/jpelling/page0/page0.html it will tell you how to take apart your camera and clean out the gear that controls the lens. The instructions are for a different model but it works for the A460 as well. You will have one extra screw to remove on the bottom. Once the gear is free of grit, reassemble the camera and plug the av cable in. This will allow your camera to "reset" the lens by powering on without attempting to focus the lens.
Try this it will resolve the issue....

Help please


I'm assuming you have a lens error which is giving you the restart message.
It is kind of misleading, but to restart the camera means to power cycle the camera or remove and reinsert the battery.
If you do have a lens error, if restarting the camera doesn't work, you'll need to get the lens fixed if to remove the error.

I have a Canon A460 that does this every now and then. Usually if I removed the batteries and put them back in, it does the trick. If that doesn't work, and the camera will stay on, try resetting it. Click Menu> Tools and then scroll all the way to the last option Reset All. Good luck!
