    I dropped my camera and now when i try to take pictures the camera makes a clicking noise when zooming in and out. After zooming in (lens out) while trying to zoom out (lens in) it says Lens Error and automatically shuts off. The camera also will not focus. Not able to take any pics.

When i turn on my canon powershot s3 iS , it says lens error restart camera. i tried restarting it , but my when my lens are trying to come out it makes a jammed noise. CAN YOU PLEASE HELP ?!


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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do 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, they're worth a try.

Broken lens : error


The lens unit will have to be replaced. This is a factory level service. It will most likely be more feasible to replace the camera!

Camera turns on BUT then get "lens error restart camera" msg


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Cannon Power shot SD630 Lens Problem


I had the same problem, tried different things but this is what worked.

I put the camera flat on its "back" (screen down, lens up). Looking down at the lens I could see that it was slightly off center. I pushed the lens towards the center and down, forcing it to close. Once it was centered I was able to turn it on and off no problem.
