Question about Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera
My 3 month old Canon SD1100 camera will not work as it says "Lens Error" It happened during our vacation so I assume sand may have gotten into it. Any suggestions?
Your assumption is probably correct. Even dust can cause the lens to get stuck (pg 193). You might try using a can of compressed air while pressing the power button to see if you can free the lens or take it to a camera shop like Ritz.

First try calling 1-800-OK-CANON to see if warranty repair applies. If not...
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:

The lens error is due to failure of the lens control system. It will be good to have it checked at the Canon service as you do not have to run around for spares.
You can remove battery and card replace battery and while switching on tap the lens hood on your palms so as to disengage any dirt or mechanism being struck.
Use some air to blow between the lens to dislodge any sand particles struck inside. If none of these works then you can think of taking consensus with the service centre.
get estimate before you decide.
