Question about Canon PowerShot S5 IS Digital Camera
I turned on my powershot then opened the battery cover to take out the SD card without turning it off. The camera turned off with the lens still extended and won't turn back on. What do I do?
If you install fresh batteries, close the battery door the lens should retract. If it did not, make sure the batteries installed are properly. And don't do that again you will lose all pictures on the card and may ruin the card permenently.
