Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel after dropping it. 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 have put new batteries in and a new memory card I turn on the power switch and it goes on and off straight away, what am I doing wrong,?LIz


First thought - is the memory card compatible with the camera ? Many cameras have a limit to the memory card capacity they can use.

Turns on then turns off straight away


Easiest solution is that the battery is dead. Try charging it, or if it takes replaceable batteries then replace them.

Camera turns on then turns off straight away


most cases its due to a stuck DV drive inside, I would have this looked at by a camera shop as this camera is worth the fix. I cannot provide further diagnosis without more dialog here but this would be my assumption on this matter.

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off. Now the camera doesn't open fully and when pusing the "play" button the power...


If the outside of the lense get dirty, those small particles may prevent the lense from opening and closing 100% as nomal times. I had the same problem with my Sony. Here is what I did.

1- I cleaned the outside(sides not the lense itself) of the lense.
2- While turning the camera off, I press on the lense (up and down motion) NOT too hard for a few times untill it either retracted all the way inn or most of the way in. If most of the way in, press the lense a little harder untill it retracts 100%. If you turn it back on, it should work as normal unless some mechanical part of the lense is broken or dislocated. When it fully opens, clean up the outside of the lense and keep it always clean for normal operation.

Good Luck!!!!!!!!

Laptop turns off when power cable is taken out even though battery is 100% charged


Hi,
sounds like the system has a problem taking power from the battery, but is able to send power to it for charging purposes, or the battery indicates a ful charge, when in reality it is bad.
If there's a way to borrow a known good battery for testing purposes, you might narrow it down.
I'm sorry, I'd need to see this one to offer any further advice.
Good luck
