Take a look inside your camera's CF card slot. I suspect that you may have a bent pin in there. If so, don't fret. Although professional repair would be more costly than the value of the camera, there is a very good chance that you can repair this yourself. Please see this link.

Canon PowerShot A3100 IS won't turn on


Make sure the battery is installed correctly.Try opening, then closing the cover to the memory card and battery compartment while holding pressure against it until you hear it click closed. Then try to power it up. The camera will not power up if the cover is not properly closed.

1. When camera is powered off, lens will not retract. "Whirring" noise heard 2. When camera is powered up the lens will extend. However there is no image seen on the screen when the camera...


Well If the photos you want to retrieve are on the 15Mo of internal memory, there is not much to do here except to see a repair center.

If they are not on the internal memory, open the Battery hatch of your camera, push on the small card that is close to the battery, then take the card out.
Now you can plug this card directly in a card reader.
If you have a laptop you might have a compatible card reader on it, otherwise buy one, it is always usefull.
Retrieving the photo this way on any camera saves battery and is usually faster than when using an USB cable.

Hope this helps

Powers on, lens extends, 3 beeps, lens closes, camera turns off


Try doing a couple of things.

1) remove and digital media cards.
2) turn the camera on and delete any pictures that may be stored in the camera memory (not on a removeable card)
3) remove the batteries for 60 seconds
4) replace the batteries without the media card and lay the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing up (5) The lens should retract.
6) Turn off the camera
7) replace the media card and turn on.

I think the camera was getting hung up on the pictures stored in the camera's memory.

When turning on the camera it shows 'Lens error restart camera'


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 ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Cannon powershot sd900 lens will not close


work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try. The list includes:
  1. Remove the batteries and wait a few minutes
  2. Try pressing and holding the Menu, Function, Function Set, or OK while turning on the camera, or otherwise find a "factory reset" option.
  3. Try turning the camera on without a memory card inserted
  4. Place the camera flat on its back and turn it on while holding down the autofocus button, to try to cause the camera to attempt autofocus while the lens is extending
  5. Blow compressed air in any gaps around the lens - or use a shop vac
  6. Use a thin piece of paper or a needle to dislodge any visible bits of grit
  7. Gently tap the camera in an attempt to realign jammed mechanics or dislodge particles (obvious warning: could cause further damage)
  8. Gently push or pull the lens barrel, as a last resort (again, potential for further damage).

Lens error Help please


The Lens Error usually means the lens has sand or another obstruction stopping it from retracting.
