With digital cameras, it must be noted that lenses are very sensitive, and can be damaged by most any impact when the lens is extended. Keeping the camera in a padded case can prevent most of this kind of damage. This particular lens problem may not have been caused by impact, but most often is. Lenses are not easy to fix, and internal parts can become broken or jammed.
To try to fix this you can try to pull on the lens when you turn it on, and at the same time also do a slight twisting and back ward motion as well. This may reset the lens to the track system. It may not work, and may require repairs.
Canon has a great repair department. Canon Repair and information.
Call the 800 number and see what can be done. Also, Canon has a trade-in or trade-up program and for your broken camera, you may be able at a reasonable price to get something even better than what you have with all the original books and papers which came with the new camera. This may be a good way to go and consider, rather than spending a lot to repair it.

    Selling it as a repair, parts and as is on a site such as Ebay, may be another choice to make.

How can i restart my canon ixus 80 (lens error , restart camera)


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.

Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea
