Take it to a camera repair shop to get a quote (the camera should be able to be sent to a repairer through any camera retailer).

When you have the quote - decide whether it is more economical to repair or replace.

Good luck.

I have a canon power shot SD850 camera and when i turn the camera on it tells me hit the reset button and I can not find it on the camera


Are you certain that it's not saying instead "lens error, restart camera"? If it is, 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 are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them.

When I try to turn on my Canon PowerShot SD850 IS, I keep seeing: Lens Error, restart camera. Is there anything I can do to fix it, or must it be replaced? Thanks so much!


This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

I need HELP


Dear ashlyw:

A lens error due to impact damage most often requires service.
If you get an E18 message or a "lens error restart camera" message on your LCD screen and you restart the camera several times to no avail, you will almost certainly need to call Canon Tech Support at 1-800-828-4040 and have it sent in for service as there is little or nothing you can do to resolve the issue.

Hope this helps.

Sincerely,
HeavyDLB
