Question about Canon PowerShot SX100 IS Digital Camera
This is a common problem , generally indicated as lens error. The problem is often caused by dirt or dust in the lens gears
Possible reasons are :
* Faulty lens mechanism or jammed lens (camera usually turns off by itself in this case)
* Main board faulty.
* Ribbon cable to main board broken or connector defective.
* If there is no power at all it is the connector from batteries to main board, this is also a ribbon cable.
First step is resetting the camera by removing battery for one minute. Ensure that you put fully charged battery and restart. In some occasions the reset may work.
You can attempt tapping gently the back of the camera while turning the camera on. Sometimes this can help the lens out.
If that does not work, then the lens must be taken apart.
The lens assembly is very delicate and it is made of small gears and parts. If you do not have enough experience, with DIY disassemblying there is always a good chance that you turn the camera into a bulk of tiny bits and pieces.
I summarized the problem in this article: Lens Error.
Try following the steps in the article if that does not work I suggest calling Fuji at the number listed on manual. You can also get a quote from a third party repair service here: Repair.
