SOURCE: canon S3IS

I removed the left ( viewd fron the back) plastic side cover anf the front plasticcover: 2 screws on the side and 2 on the bottom for the left cover. 3 scews on the bottom, 1 screws on the left side,2 screws below the flash, screws on the rigth side. Be carefull not to tearoff the small electrical cables.

After removing the front cover I assemble it again...and it works. I think it was mechanical jam or something like that.

If you are carefull I think the risk worth the 124$ which is 1/3 of the camera cost.

SOURCE: Camera wont turn on. Says lens error and restar camera

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that will require professional repair. If it has not been dropped, your problem is likely due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the camera may require professional repair.

SOURCE: lens error says restart camera how

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, or cost of repair is more than the value of the camera,, they're worth a try.

Something is bent or jammed service will probably cost nearly as much as a replacement camera. Sorry. You can try to cycle the zoom button on the camera a few times before you again try to power off and retract the lens but I am not optimistic of any solution short of repair or replacement.

Lens error says restart camera how to restart canon S3iS camera


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.

Lens will not retract itself.


Since the motor is clearly running, it and the battery are OK.
I fear the mechanism is broken and needs specialist repair (if not too costly)

I have a Canon Powershot S3IS and I recently purchased a 2x telephoto lens. When I use the telephoto lens and try to extend the distance as far as it will go, the camera shuts off and says lens error...


Did you tell the camera that you are using an external/additional lens? You have to specify it somewhere in the menu, the camera gives you some options (the lens model numbers) and you need to match it with your lens' model number.

Displays "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
