My daughter dropped our A520. The power comes on for a second and then shuts down. The lens is stuck open. Is this worth fixing?


I had this problem once. The lens was stuck open and the power would not go on. I took out the storage card and the lens retracted.

Lens is stuck about 97% open. The camera will not


The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Describe hi, i have a canon powershot a520 that was left in someone's purse when she gave it back to me the lens is now sticking half way out and when i push the power button it blinks on for a split...


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's 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.

Replacement parts for canon powershot a520????


I have a "broken" A520 that needs a new LCD. I really don't want to spend another $90 to get it fixed so may be willing to sell it for parts. Let me know. I don't know about any guide for disassembly however.

My Canon Powershot SD400 won't turn on and lense won't go back in


Unfortunately the lens assemblies in these compact digital cameras are quite delicate. The drop probably knocked the barrels of the lens out of alignment preventing it from moving. You can try to GENTLY twist the lens back and forth, you may be able to click it back into alignment allowing it to function normally. If the gentle manipulation fails to fix the problem you will need to get the camera serviced by a professional. There are quality repair services on the web who will work on your camera.
