I dropped the camera. Tripped over the cord, had it plugged in because battery won't hold much charge. Now, lens will not retract, camera buzzes 7x then screen says lens and turns itself off.

Unfortunately the lens has been damaged, the motor and gear linkage is compromised and will require a camera specialist to resolve the issue, I suggest getting an estimate before commitment.

I have a canon powershot g3. It turns on and seems to be taking pictures, but I don't think the shutter is opening, as all the pictures are coming out black.

the G3 was sort of a protype of thew G4, try tapping the camera lightly, not fixable, you can get a used g9 at great prices, or g10 ,g11

Lens Error. Restart Camera. Camera gives this error message and then shuts off. I can't access photos or function buttons. What can I do?

Press the "MENU" button and navigate to the reset command and reset the camera. That may get the camera to function properly.

Lens Error, Restart


What you are seeing is a generic stuck lens error message, turning off the camera and turning it on again will not fix the lens unfortunately.

Your lens needs to be cleaned or repaired, and if it cant be repaired it needs to be replaced. There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

Fixya rules prevent me from giving you a link to anything off Fixya that would help you fix your camera.

Good luck from....
