When I turn the camera on it shows lens error and shuts off


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:

I am having to manualy open my shutter to take a picture. Any suggestions on a quick fix?


Think you're probably referring to your automatic lens cover. If so, this blog post outlines repair procedures for stuck lens covers. An A400 is used as an example. But it should be somewhat similar for an A550. The exception being that the A550 has four shutter leaves instead of simply two as the A400 has. Highly recommend trying the non-obtruisive fixes first, and giving them a second try before going in there:

Canon A550 and A560 have the same body and most of the internal parts, including lens assembly are the same. Canon won't sell individual parts within the lens assembly. There could be two possiblities. One is (unlikely) that the lens assembly components have been knocked off from their position. The other is that because of a knock, or dropping the camera, the gears in the gearbox of the lens assembly are broken. These gears are the same as the ones in A530/A540, and are available from ebay for $12.50 including shipping. Checkout my site for how to open up the camera and the lens assembly to replace these:

For A550 and A560, if you take it to the professional repair shop, it might not be cost effective, since it might cost around $90. Canon does not sell gears, so they might have to replace the entire lens assembly. The new camera is available these days for around $140.

Unable to upload photo to computer.


as far as i think VISTA is not compailant with the CANON software. since vista s a latest version CANON will have to release a new version of its software for VISTA.
so this must be requested with CANON.
