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 to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, or if repair costs close to the value of the camera, they're worth a try.

PowerShot SD630 lens stuck out, says lens error, restart camera


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

Canon ixus 75 digital camera reset?


Hi

What you are seeing is just an error message, starting your camera again won't do anything unfortunately.

You need to replace the lens, we have your lens repair available on our site for about $75! If we can help please let us know.

Canon powershot A590 displayes lens error, restart camera.


I had this problem. Nothing was lodged between the body and lens, restarting multiple times did nothing, cleaning, torquing, twisting over several days - nothing.

So, figuring "what could it hurt?" I just smacked it on the heel of my hand a couple times. Now it works.

firm percussive maintenance saves the day once again.

Canon Powershot A590 IS GIVING ME A "LENS ERROR, RESTART CAMERA" MESSAGE. I have restarted and the message keeps repeating.


Mine is the same model and it was giving me this same message when I tried to start it up. "LENS ERROR, RESTART CAMERA". It's probably a result of you dropping it. I research it and could'nt find the answer anywhere. I got mad and upset because I use my camera so much and it was not working for the holidays so I hit the lens of the camera on a desk, amazingly I turned it on after I hit t and it started working. I know it sounds a little crazy but give it a try! GOOD LUCK!
