If the camera was bumped and the lens is stuck for that reason you will need a repair that is not covered by the warranty. If the camera has a defect and it is less than a year old and bought in the USA you can send it off for warranty repair. Take it to you local camera store for them to help.

Hi This morning my canon sx200 is dropped when it was open and i found little bent in lens cover. I could able to take picture also at that instance. But when i tried to turn off, lens could not able to...


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 troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

The SX200 lens is stuck half open and the camera tells m to re-start but I cannot get the menu up to go to re-start


Camera tells you to power off then on again to exercise the lens movement hoping to smooth out the dirt on the lens barrel.

I get a lens error message: restart camera, but don't have a clue how to do it. please help


Hello

Unfortunately a "lens error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

Hello

Thank you for using FixYa for your problem

Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty.
It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

Please rate our solutions and if you still have problems please call back for more ideas to help you

Thanks

sounds like when you dropped it it damage the gears in the camera that make the lens not work properly , you may want to take it and get it fix by the maker of the camera sorry.

Lens error


This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Looks like the lens is "out of alignment". Canon charges heftily for this repair. However if the lens is not broken then many people have got it working through systematic bashing. Click here to view the thread

The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:
