Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

Regards
Andrea

The problem is when i switch my camera on, on the


ok so I was searching for the answer for this myself.. very hard to say, because it really depends on what happened to your camera.. Did you drop it? Did it emerge in water? But for me, I have come to the conclusion for everyone who has the problem.. it is most (99%) probably a problem with the lense.. another site told me to take it to get fiixed- or to take the battery out and wait 20 min to put it back in, because this resets it. I decided to manually open the lense myself (who knows if thats bad/good to do, but a girl's gotta take her pix!!) So anyway, i opened the lense, and turned it on- the "on again off again" msg went away. So most likely, the problem does stem to the lense not being able to be opened, so the msg pops up, if you open the lense yourself your camera works fine, when you turn it off- my closes the lense-just doesnt open it. different results for different people, but i hope this helps because it was very simple.

Why an ei6 error msg on canona630 suddenly after just taking pix?


The E16 error is a circuit board problem and is not user fixable. It needs to go to a Canon service facility. Try to get it fixed under warranty, if possible. If not, get an estimate before repairing, as price may be prohibitive. Weigh repair costs against replacing with a new camera.

No pix on memory card...E18 msg on camera..


it sounds like the cards is know good. It happen to me once if you take the card out of the camera before turning it off it can destroy the card. Then the card is know good at all. The camera will not be able to read it or the computer.
