You need to take it to a camera shop for servicing, this is not something you're going to be able to solve at home

My Canon PowerShot SD850 IS has a lens that is stuck in the extended position. I get a screen that says lens error, restart camera, but when I try to connect to the software, I get a screen on the computer...


Don't play around with that lens, you can do more damage to the camera and focus with some of the stuff people tell you to try. Your camera just needs to be serviced and you'll be working great again. The shop that specializes in service for the powershots is: camerasandparts.com They're amazing if you need a hand with one of these, that's all they deal with. They have your exact SD850 Lens Error, Restart Camera problem on their site. Good luck, they're the place for help with a powershot, best of luck with it.

My SD850 Canon says Lens Error restart camera. I have tried to turn it on/off numerous times taken out the battery and sd card. Is there anything else I can try


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 will not close


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
