Question about Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera
Cannon SD850 IS one month old. The lens will not close. When you turn on the camera it says lens error, restart camera
canon powershot SD850 IS
Your camera is still under warranty, and what you are seeing is a generic message that means there is an error with the lens operation. Please call Canon and have them fix it for you for free!
For others who's cameras are not under warranty, you will need to have your lens repaired or replaced if you get the error messages mentioned above.
A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.
Don't bother trying to send the camera to Canon (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.
I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.
We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.
Hope this helps,
