Question about Canon Powershot A1000IS Digital Camera
This is the cause of many of the problems when dropped or has had an impact of some sort, especially when the lens is extended.
The impact can damage internal parts to the point it will need replacement of parts and repair.
In spite of what I have said, the possiblity that the lens has been knocked off track does exist. So you can try to repair it, but be advised that what I will explain can damage it more.
When the camera is starting pull on the lens if you can get a hold on the lens housing. You can also push on the lens housing when it is starting, try it with a twisting motion at the same time. If the lens snaps into it's track, it may be fixed. Test the camera.
Depending on the way the camera was impacted, there may be a dent on the lens cover, or other parts. This can happen when the camera is dropped on something very hard such as cement or rocks.
If all fails, I suggest, since this is a fairly new camera, to call Canon repair department. They do have a trade-up or trade-in program, if it cannot be repaired, or is too costly. Canon Repair and info.
If that does not work, you can always sell it for parts or repairs on a site such as Ebay.
Hope it works out.
