Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after some minute particles, or even a slight bump has caused the lens to derail from 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 center 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.

Regards
Andrea

I was taking photos when suddenly my Canon PowerShot SD 1300 IS IXUS 105 read "Lens error. Will shut down automatically. Restart camera." Then the screen went blank. The lens will not retract....


There is something wrong with your lens barrel. It can be anything from some sand/dirt that got inside in which you try using some canned air to blow out the particles while continually turning it on and off. Usually what it is from is the camera being dropped, even if it is in a case or inside a bad. The jostle or direct impact of the fall will break some small gears or tweak the lens off of alignment. If it was from an impact then you lens barrel needs to be replaced and in that case the repair cost are usually as much as getting a new camera. You can send it into Canon and get it repair for a flat rate. Sorry about your camera.

If your lense is clean and dust free, scratch free, maybe you have dirt or even bad pixel/s on the sensor!!!

My lens won´t retract. can see photos in Play mode, but will not switch to Record mode


Did it fall?
Try using a compressed air to blow off the small particles of dust which are arround the mechanism of the lenses(you dont have to dissaseble,just blow arround the lenses)
After that try playing with the batery(in-out while pressing the power button,so that the mechanislm of the lenses could come into place)
Hope it helps!
