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 are 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.

Canon IXUS 100IS - 'Lens error, restart camera' message


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.

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:

It has a lens error. Everytime the camera is turned on it beeps and clicks constantly. It eventually shuts off after displaying "Lens error, restart camera." on the screen.


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

Canon SC100 Lens Error


I have a 3 year old Canon PowerShot SX100 IS. While testing an external battery power supply I built, the external power connector pulled out while the lens barrel was extending just after I turned on the camera. Power to the camera was lost before the lens barrel fully extended and wouldn't reset when I repowered the camera. The dreaded error message "Lens error, restart camera" appeared and the camera shut down. I restarted the camera over and over and over again but the lens wouldn't reset. I was extremely lucky to find the information here and read various fixes. I didn't want to take the camera apart so I tried various fixes others have successfully used. I first tried smacking the bottom of the camera hard with the palm of my hand just after pushing the on/off button but that didn't work. The one which worked was smacking the camera on the side immediately after I pushed the on/off button. I smacked it quite hard twice with the palm of my hand then, suddenly, the lens barrel began to move and the lens reset itself back to its starting position. Thanks to everyone who has posted here!

Lens stays open


The lens would have to be repaired or replaced. You'd be looking at a $95-$125 repair

Lens error


This lens is in need of repair, though contrary to what some of the people on this site will say, paying $150 for a lens repair is completely unnecessary.
Usually a problem like what you are having is just a realignment and cleaning of the lens and gears. This in itself is a relatively cheap repair ($50-$75) Sometimes however, the plastic housing covering the lens itself gets damaged, or the lens twists inside the housing, which many times can require purchasing a new lens (this will run $150 or so).

The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

Camera rapidly beeps 6 times when powered up and immediately turns off!


I HAVE SOLVED THIS!
I Totally fixed my CAMERA!
If you turn on your camera, the lens does not come out, and it just beeps then turns off, then listen to me.
You need to unscrew the outer casing and take off the metal shell.
Hold the camera in one hand, palming it, looking down at the LCD (ie the lens is pointing into your palm). This is to orient you.
If you look at the left SIDE of the camera, near the upper left corner of the LCD, you can peek through some of the windows of the black plastic casing and see 2 PLASTIC GEARS. The top one is white, the other is black. These are the gears that actually move the lens in and out. All I did was give the white gear a good jiggle with the tip of a pen and evidently it made the teeth of the gears mesh together like its supposed to and .... VOILA .... the lens came out when I powered it on and all is well! I know this is gonna help someone!
