The lense of my PowerShot A430 is stuck and thereby renders the camera useless. Is there a way to fix this or should I just buy a new one?

Zoom lenses - stuck in its housing or fully extended are caused by factors like - knocks, dead butteries debris or some form of corrosion .
This is a risky method and I would recommend for the last option, if other conventional methods don't work.

Provided your lens has collapsed into its housing - you try a little knock on the camera with your palm while pressing the on/off button. If that does not work, you are on your own - to decide.

Lense error, restart camera

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

Lens Error, Restart


What you are seeing is a generic stuck lens error message, turning off the camera and turning it on again will not fix the lens unfortunately.

Your lens needs to be cleaned or repaired, and if it cant be repaired it needs to be replaced. There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

Fixya rules prevent me from giving you a link to anything off Fixya that would help you fix your camera.

Good luck from....

Ok, i just had this problem 5 minutes ago because i dropped my camera. I know, very stupid of me! but i was able to fix it myself, and hopefully you can too.
the problem is your lense. The lense being stuck causes the camera to automatically power off. if you can tell where the lense is stuck (you can usually see because it is jammed and lower than the rest, it slants in that direction) you may be able to pull it back out without damaging the camera. i just did this and i was so relieved!
