You need to elaborate a little further. I had two problems with the camera. One was that the zoom button got messed up when I'd opened up the camera and put it back. Because of this, the lens would extend at powerup, but not extend or retract using zoom button. I've mentioned it in the repair guide that I'd put together. Second problem was that the gears in the gear box broke, because of which I got lens error. If you're adventurous enough, you can open it up and repair it yourself. The gears are available on ebay for $12.50 including shipping. The repair guide is at:

Hope this helps.

LENS ERROR, RESTART CAMERA...


CANON IXUS 561
Lens sometimes does not extend and error message 'lens error restart camera' appears when camera is turned on. This does not work without several tries and much button pressing. Problem is not caused by finger(s) in front of lens barrel.

My camer says lens error,restart camera waht do I do?


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.

Lens Error - Restart Camera : Lens remains in extended position.


I had the same problem with the same camera. Ended up twisting the lens by hand back and forth while powering the camera on and off till the lens pins finally realined and let it close properly. Took alot of patience and care but has worked since. Usual cause of this problem is powering camera while the lens is blocked from extending, ie in a case, laying on its face etc.

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:

My lens wont fully extend


My sister's camera was having the same trouble and after trying a few different things, i came across a solution that fixed her camera. Her error said "lense error, restart camera."

I held down the shutter button for a few seconds, then i held down the power button as well. I tried it once or twice and then it worked. I hope this helps!
