Question about Canon PowerShot A430 Digital Camera
I have a Canon PowerShot A430, and was taking photos yesterday, and the lens won't retract. Even tho the green light is flashing, it has no power.
When I press the on button, the light flashes, then I get a message showing "lens error, restart camera." I have tried other suggestions, but to no avail. Please help me.
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.
Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try:
