Ok try this, maybe they've got tired of taking easy money of $90 for the fix

This is not a joke........
Use a can of compressed air and blow around the lens while it is extended. Even if the lens wont extend still use the compresses air on ther lrns area.
Take a relatively firm approach with this problem slap the camera into your palm two or three times.
Not lens down in thi case of an extended lens, but using the side or rear of the camera to make contact with your palm
Make sure you have the camera cord around your wrist so as not to lose it across the room.
Do this several times and turn it on and off till the message of turn on and off no longer shows(if it ever did) and the lens retracts or extends when turned on and it works correctly. The compressed air will help remove any accumulated dust that is jambing the lens.
This is a tech fix and not a joke, they charge you $90 to do this and this fault is not uncommon in many of these small cameras
dust and dirt get taken into the lens bay and eventually cause it to stick. Hence the use of compressed air with the brutal approach.

you can even take it to a mechanic shop and use their air gun blower attachment as it has more pressure than the aerosol can.

good luck

How to fix digital camera canon ixus 70 'lens error restart camera'?


Would not recommend opening the camera as the chances are much greater for you causing greater damage. BUT would instead recommend that you try the seven sequential repair step outlined for a lens error in the below listed Related Link "Fixing a Lens Error on a Digital Camera". None of the steps outlined in this link involve opening the camera. and reportedly you should have close to a 50% chance of success with these techniques.

If you cannot repair the lens yourself with the first related link, then consider trying the two 'Digital camera repair" links below for two online digital camera repair businesses.

Lens Error, Restart Camera


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 wont close


tryig to force it closed if sand is in it will do further damage. Can you gently extend the lens and jiggle it to see if any sand comes out. Most likely this fault needs repairing to open it up and remove the sand.
