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.

Screen not working on Canon powershot D10...takes pics but screen is black.

This is obviously a lack of power flow into the LCD. It could mean many things. All you need to do is; take it into a service centre for a check up and repair.
Don't attempt to fix it yourself.... if you value your camera, you need to accord it proper service ... and care.

Canon d10 water damaged

Buy another camera. Cameras as opposed to cell phone cameras have a flash circuit and water is conductive, so you have 300 plus volts going into a 6 volt circuit. You can use the camera as a paperweight

My cannon powershot D10 wont take clear pictures. Its just a fuzzy screen when I turn it on. I just used it an hour ago and it was fine. It is ruined or can I get it fixed?

These cameras use a focusing ring, that is controlled by electro-magnets and signals from the onboard processor. If any dust, sand, lint, etc., gets inside the lens assembly, it can jam the ring, not allowing it to focus. Your best shot to remedy this (short of repair) is to get a can of compressed air and spray it into the front of the lens assembly, trying to loosen the ring and allow it to work. You can buy the compressed air at Walmart for around $4, and it's also handy for cleaning out computer keyboards and the vents on laptops. If you don't have any success with this, repair will be necessary. Make sure you get an estimate first, since the whole camera will have to be disassembled to solicit the repair. Often, the cost of repair is more than that of a new camera. Here's a web blog about the problem of stuck lens, and you can also try their other hints, in the hope of freeing the focus ring up.
The blog is about lens errors and problems with the lens assembly, so it also applies to the problem you're having. Good luck, and hope this helps!

When i try to turn my Canon d10 on, i see a timer counting up instead of the image... it's a blue screen with white numbers

that's the clock feature, you must be holding down the "func set" button as you're turning on the camera.

First inmersion with Canon D10.Display went off, never recover. But it seems the camera functions, as it takes pictures. I d br grateful is someone helps me, its my second day of holidays, it is not fair!...

Apparently, you got a camera with an lcd screen that leaks. If it's still under warranty, get Canon to fix or replace it. I know that doesn't help you on your vacation.
