Question about Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera
I hate to be the bearer or bad tidings but you have all suffered from what is probably the number one affliction of digital cameras - the deadly child drop :-(
In almost all cases the camera has to be sent in for service when this happens. Obstructions (by hands, restrictive pockets, or even pocketbooks with little extra space in them) are very common causes of lens errors as is drops, and all cause damage that needs to be repaired at the Service Center.
Even worse, this type of damage is not covered under your warranty even when you are still within your 12 month warranty period. Therefore there will be a charge.
The good news is that the charge is less than the cost of a new camera, and that for certain camera models below the A560, you may qualify to upgrade to this model for less than the repair cost. Call Canon at 1-800-828-4040 for your options. Good luck.
Hope this helps.

I have found that if I change the shooting mode to "P, Tv, Av,or M" on the dial on the top of the camera I can usually get the lens to come out and work again.
