Question about Cameras
Thank you all of you, i never ever think the old ''tap it hard'' or gve it a kick method works but i tried this just this second with my CANON IXUS 60 DIGITAL CAMERA and it worked.
My error was ''lens error, please restart camera''
1. I tried getting a straw and blowing around the lens as it would not open at all. No Joy!!!
2. I tried tapping the side of the camera while pressing the on button-no joy!!!
3. I tried taking out the attery and the memory card for 2 mins and then putting back in and switcing on- still no joy!!
4. SUCESSS YIPEEEEEEEEEE......what i dis was the same as step 2 but i hit it with a good few hard thumps and bob's your uncle i have my camera back and i don't have to pay Canon repair €150.00/$ 220
Thank u all posters u are great, i felt i had to return the favour and keep the good karma flowing :-)

It's a good bet that anything 4GB or greater is a SDHC card (look on the card, see if SDHC is written there). Your A530 was designed before the new SDHC format came out. Sorry, but your camera will not recognize this type of card. Recommend instead that you get a 2GB standard SD card. They're relatively inexpensive these days.

I am desperate; I am at Normandy (France) to see the D-Day sites...something I've waited to do for 40 years. Accidentally, my Canon 350D fell on the ground; I picked it up and it worked fine as I took dozens of picture in Paris...but now that I'm here, absolutely nothing will turn on, even though it downloaded picture to my laptop just this morning. Please help; what can I do?
FYI, after the accident, the Error 99 message came on...but then went away; is there a link here?

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:

Yes. The IXUS 60 was designed to work with SD cards. Cards larger than 2GB are actually SDHC (the HC stands for High Capacity) and will not work in this camera.
