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 message. Camera will not restart.


Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try 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 (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

When I open my Canon A570 camera, The lens stuck, and it says on the screen :"lens errror - restart camera". What can I do? Thanks, Nati.


This message ' lens error - restart camera ' is usually shown under the following condition.
An error was detected when the lens was in motion and the power has been automatically turned off.This error can occur while you hold the lens when it is in motion or you operate it in a location with excessive dust or sand in the air.Try turning the power back on, and resume shooting or playback.If this message continues to display it shows a problem with the lens and you have to open and repair it which I would not prefer as it can affect the fine mechanics inside the camera.You can contact the Canon Customer Support Help Desk from the following link. ( http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/consumer?pageKeyCode=requestRepair ).Your valuable feedback would be appreciated if satisfied with my solution.Thank you.

Lense Error


Dear Can On:

Unfortunately only a small percentage of lens errors can be resolved on their own, such as by restarting your camera. If that doesn't work then the camera will have to be sent into the service center for repair.

Call Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 for your service options. If you are within your one year warranty and the lens error is through no fault of your own, then it will be repaired at no cost and returned to you within three weeks of mailing.

If the camera is out of warranty, or the lens error is due eto liquid, sand, or impact damage, then you would incur a repair cost. The good new is that, under these circumstances, you can take advantage of the Upgrade Program and get a refurbished upgraded A560 model for (I believe) less than the cost of the repair. Call and see.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB
