    The camera froze with the lens in the 'out' position and has stuck there since. When it is switched on an error message appears which says 'lens fault, reset camera'. I want to know how to perform a reset please?

    Thanks for the reply.


    This error message is displayed when there is a problem with the lens mechanism.

    Try turning the power back on, and resume shooting or playback. If this message
    continues to display even after repeated attempts, you will have to get your camera serviced at an Authorized Canon Service Center.

    Thanks once again.

Syster error, or please restart camera messages... lens seems to go a little berzerk... HELP! I love this camera...


Hi.

This sounds like the camera has developed a fault with the lens. You can however try to reset the camera to factory defaults.
Before you perform this action try and copy any data from the internal memory to the camera card (if you have one in) and then remove the camera card.
In the setup menu on the LCD display scroll to "Reset" that will return the camera to factory defaults.



Hope this helps and good luck.

Tip

Lens Error


Try removing and replacing batteries to reset the camera. Ensure that batteries are fully charged.

If that does not clear the problem, then the lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. This happens because there is dirt inside the lens (sand dust), or one part in the lens assembly is bad or went out of place.
Because of this he lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.

Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
If if does not extend tapping gently the back of the camera, and if it does not retract helping lens back in while turning camera respectively on and off.

More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

I dropped my camera and now the lense wont retract all the way. a red screen pops up and says "Lens error, try turning the camera off then on again' the lense wont come out, what do i do?


There can be a mechanical break or a lens mounting break due to the fall and so the camera must be opened out to reset the lens hood.
You will need some experience to remove carefully and checck the drive for the dislocation of the motor control.
It can be a visual indicatiion to the fault if looked in and can be removed ,reset or the brokedn part glued into the mount.

OKAY . well . I have a Canon PowerShot SD1000 digital elph . whenever I turn it on it kinda freezes and says "Lens error, restart camera." my camera's like my life . help :(


Possible error or fault in the auto focus mechanism or the main board. Remove off the memory card and the battery for some 30 mintues so as to reset.
Put back only the battery into the camera and check if the fault clears. If not remove and while inserting and powerring tap gently on the lens hood to set off a jammed lens drive.
If none off these work I advice the job to the Canon service than to tamper on.

I didn't drop my camera or even touch it and it started saying lens error and automatically shutting down. How do I fix this?


Remove the battery and also the memory card and keep aside. after about 30 minutes reinsert the battery and hold down OK button, then switch on to see if the camera resets with the lens correcting. If the fault does not clear, repeat once again but hold the lens on the palm and tap softly to reset the mechanism from any blocks.
If none of the above works you will need help to open and check.

HOW DO i reset my camera when I get a "lens error" message?


If the camera is under guarantee take it back,
the lens error is that the lens isnt locking properly, to do this (and this is going to sound nuts) you must take the battery out wait 2-3 minutes then whack the camera (side) on a hard surface like a solid wood desk( not too hard), this will help unblock the lens to close/open correctly),
this is a fault with this particular model and its going to continue happening to you,

Lens error, restart camera.How can I restart the camera IXUS 60?


Hi,

Since the camera is locked after lens error, you will restart camera removing batteries.

If this does not help, then you are in one of the following conditions:

Lens error and lens does not retract.
Try helping lens gently back in while you turn off the camera holding the button at same time.

Lens error and lens do not extend.
Restart the camera , and try gently tapping the camera back with the palm of your hand whilst restarting camera at same time.

If that does not help, then one part on the camera lens assembly is broken or out of place, or dirt inside lens mechanism caused the fault.

The lens must be disassembled by a technician to fix the problem.

If the problem is not fixed swapping batteries and resetting, then the camera must be taken apart and tested by a technician.

No setting can cause white spots on the picture, this is a fault.

By the way you can reset settings on this camera to initial state by simply removing and putting back camera batteries.
Alternatively you should have a reset command on camera settings menu.

My opinion is that this is a fault and not a settings problem.

Typically there are three kind of faults that can cause this problem:

1 - Dirty lens or water inside the lens:
The lens may be dirty inside, for example because of water condensation on internal surfaces, this will cause blurred dots or black dots. The lens must be taken apart and cleaned in this case.

2 - Defective CCD sensor.
The CCD sensor is the chip that detects the picture, if you get well defined white or colored spots on picture that is probably a defective CCD. I think this is the more likely in your case. To fix this the sensor must be replaced.

3 - Defective video chip on internal board.
This can cause any kind of problems, however it is quite unlikely.
It is an expensive repair.
