My camera lens won't open. The message says

My Canon Powershot A430 camera lens won't open. The message says "lens error restart camera, but it doesn't help to restart. We were at the coast and although we kept the camera in it's case while in the sand, my nephew set the case in the sand. It didn't appear to have any sand inside. I took a picture, turned it off and then it wouldn't open again.

SOURCE: It's a canon powershot sd

You can download software, manuals, and more from the manufacturer's web site at
http://www.usa.canon.com/cusa/support/consumer/digital_cameras/powershot_sd_series/powershot_sd1100_is

You might want to consider NOT connecting your camera to your computer. The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB or FireWire). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo cataloging program.

I have a Canon PowerShot A430 camera. When I turn it on, the lens doesn't open and it shuts off. The message on the screen says " Lens error, restart camera." Please advise. Thanks


Hi,

The Lens Error is displayed on the LCD screen when the Lens Mechanism is stuck or when affected by any malfunction. If turning the power on and off again does not resolve the error message, try doing a power reset and Initialize option.
Performing a manual power reset
Turn off the camera.
Remove the battery pack.
Press and hold the power button for 30 seconds.
Allow the camera to remain without power for 60 seconds.
Reinsert the battery pack.
Turn on the camera.
You can reset the Camera back to factory default by performing the following steps:
Press the power button.
Press and hold the MENU button for more than 5 seconds. Default Settings will get displayed.
Use the arrow buttons to select OK and press the FUNC./SET button. This will reset all the settings back to factory deafult.
This should resolve the issue. If the issue persists, service may be required.

Thanks for contacting FixYa

Turn camera on error message keeps popping up lens error, restart camera. Have restarted but still keeps coming up. Can you help please Thanks David


Some problem with the lens.
Look at the lens as it comes out, and listen as well. If it does not come out at all, then internal problems exist.
If there are noises, problems are inside.
If the lens comes out but is not at a straight angle, you may be able to fix it by carefully pulling on it as it extends.

If nothing else, sell it on Ebay as a repair camera.
List it like this:

Lens won't retract


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.

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try:

I went to the beach and when it came back, it was like ur's, so it might be some tiny piece of dirt and sand stuck in the lens somewhere.
