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

    Hello

    That is not something that i would suggest you try to do yourself. Rather get it done by a profesional, than trying it yourself, and ending up with a totally useless unit.

    Kind regards

Dropped my canon sd 1400 IS camera now it wont turn on and i am in chile but have a warranty on the camera, what can i do?


Dropping the camera voids your warranty. It would be a miracle if they fixed it for free.

Camera wont turn on


If the camera was dropped, the circuit board or some other part inside was probably damaged. The camera would require factory level service. First verify what you paid for the camera, and then get an estimate. You may find it more worth while to replace the camera.

As for myself, I dropped a digital camera, and the lens was damaged. The repair cost was over 80% of the cost of a new camera.

Won't turn on.


Did the camera sustain any damage (dropped, water damage etc)? If not I would check with Canon or the reseller to see if you can return the camera.

As a last resort you could sell the broken camera on Ebay. I know you would get around 80-90 for it. The SD1000s price is dropping now so you could turn around and buy one for around $160.
