Question about Canon PowerShot S410 / IXUS 430 Digital Camera
I get an error msg that reads l"ens error, restart camera". The camera makes a sound as if it's trying to retract but cannot catch.
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.
