SOURCE: I don't know what to

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that's preventing it from powering up. If it hasn't been dropped your problem may be due to corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera - which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then clean the battery contacts, place the batteries back in the camera and give them a full charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This cleaning clears the problem about 80% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

Lens on my S7000 doesn't retract when switched off - now permanently extended - and camera dead


This is going to require service / repair at the shop, not something you will be able to correct.

The camera was dropped while it was on. The lens is stuck in the open position. When the camera is first started it sounds like tiny gears spinning but not catching. It doesn't really grind or...


Before trying any of the suggestions, make sure your Canon has fresh batteries and it is in recording mode.
1) Remove the batteries from the camera, wait for a couple of minutes, then put them back in and turn the camera on.
2) Try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function fine.
3) Another method is to tap the padded USB cover part on a hard surface, for example, a desk. It sounds so simple, but very often in works.
4) Try forcing the camera lens:
Turn off the camera. Place it on the back with the lens facing up and take a look at the spacing between the lens and the lens housing. If you notice that the gap is not even all the way around the lens, the problem should be easy to fix. This type of a problem usually occurs if the camera was dropped while the lens was extended.
Simply - VERY GENTLY - press down the lens on the side where the gap is the biggest. You should hear a "click" as it pops back into place. Try powering the camera back on.
If the lens doesn't extend at all or it extends, and then retracts again, do the following. Turn the camera off. Take the camera in one hand and with the other gently take one part of the lens and gently move it round in a circular movement. Do so with both sections of the lens. You will hear a "click" as it pops back in place. Power the camera on.
Another version of this fix would be to pull and twist on the largest ring of the lens while turning the camera on. Listen for a "click". If at first the focus seems to be off, turn the camera on and off and take lots of pictures, close ups and distance. Focus should slowly start improving.
5) If that doesn't work, there is an online guide for dismantling Canon SD cameras:http://www../Device/Canon_Powershot_SD880 or

It takes time to turn on


I hold the digital camera with the lens upward when I switch it on, and then the problem doesn''t occur and I can take pictures.
I hope that this workaround will also work for you.

Turning on the camera.


I had the same problem. I tried turning it off and hitting the camera on the palm of my hand but that didn't work. But, hitting it one time on the palm of my hand WHILE THE CAMERA WAS TURNING ON worked. I turned the camera on, it moved the lens out and I hit it one time on my hand and it works perfectly now.

Someone suggested it was a problem with the internal lens which makes sense. Also, be careful not to hit a sensitive part of the camera on your hand. I used one of the corners.
