Question about Canon PowerShot SX110 IS Digital Camera
I tried all the listed steps to no avail. However, a variation of Fix #6 did the trick instantly. [ymmv]
I firmly gripped the camera in my right palm with my thumb over the on button, index finger wrapped beside the lens and under the lcd, middle finger directly under the Func button.
Then I swung it in an arc into the **** of my left palm, hitting the camera in the back left edge being careful not to hit the lcd.
Just as I hit the palm of my hand I turned it on with my thumb.
It immediately whirred and retracted the lens.
It really didn't require much shock, it was a relatively light hit.
I hope this helps someone. :)

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.

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 solution 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).

Your best bet would be to have it serviced by a professional to get you going again, those are really excellent cameras. If you'd like to have it repaired, you can have the G9's repaired here: www.camerasandparts.com This place just does the Canons exclusively, they don't work on any other models. The best part, the work through them is superb and they are not expensive at all. It runs $89 for parts / labor on the repair and the servicing for the camera included. Plus they cover shipping back which we like. The best part is the work through them just excellent on the Canons, they'd be the place if you want to have it fixed. Hope that helps you with it, all the best. That's a great little camera.
