Try checking your battery. Sometimes the battery is so low that it can't make the lens go back in.

Camera lens does not retract and shows camera error #e45


It appears that the error code is due to your lens being stuck. In many small digital cameras this is caused by a drop or jar to the camera and the lens being knocked off of its tracks. Make sure your camera battery is fully charged. Power the camera off. With the camera is laying flat on its back on a table or other level surface, see if the space or gap around the lens is an even amount. If not, it is probably out of its guide track. Holding one hand cupped, take the camera, face down and lightly strike it into the cupped palm of the other hand. That should dislodge any sand or grit. Then, holding the camera in one hand, grasp the lens gently and apply a light pressure toward the side with the larger gap around the lens. Do not apply a lot of force. Do this gently. If you hear a light "click" the lens should be back in place. Try powering the camera on to test the results. If it still doesn't retract, power it back off and lightly rotate the lens back and forth with you hand. Do not apply a lot of force! Again, if you hear a click, the lens should be back on its tracks. Power it up to test it. If that doesn't do the trick you probably need to take it to a repair shop or replace the camera.

When playing a DVD, we experience frequent stops and starts..


It may be a dirty lens, or perhaps the drive is getting stuck.
The first thing to try, if you feel up to it, is to clean the lens. First, you'll need rubbing alcohol (peroxide isn't the same thing) and a Q-tip. Add a tiny amount of alcohol to the Q-tip and gently rub it against the lens of the laser. After a few times around the lens, use the dry end of the Q-tip to pick up any excess alcohol lying around. Put the player back together and try playing a disc.
If it still doesn't fix the issue, then the following steps can be taken.
Have a disc in the drive and while it's off, open it up. Start the drive and see if it's spinning freely. If not, then onto the next part.
Use some WD40 on the shaft of the drive motor that makes the disc spin. Just use a little bit at a time and work it in by manually spinning the spindle (what the disc rests on). Once that's finished, put the disc back in and reassemble the drive, plug it in, turn it on, and see if it spins better.

CCD problem and then lens problem


If the symptoms are similar as it was ccd imager problem then contact again with Canon for again free replacement of ccd imager chip in camera.
Can you post an image here that shows purple problem?
And if its lens problem as said by Canon then new camera would be better option instead of spending on its repair.
Thanks.

Lens error,restart camera


My Camera: Canon PowerShot SD770 IS Digital Camera

Went to the beach yesterday, by the end of the night my camera gave me this error: "lens error, restart camera". The lens would no longer come out.

I figured sand got stuck within the lens, so I did the following:

1. Turn camera up-side-down (with lens facing down)
2. Gently tap the sides of the camera (to loosen particles in lens)
3. Turn camera on
4. The lens will eventually come out
5. Gently tap the sides of the lens
6. Turn camera off (continue tapping side of lens as it retracts)

I turned the camera on and off a couple of times to ensure I removed all sand particles from the camera.

Now the camera works...thank god.

Camera lens stuck


this occured to me whilst using my Sony P200, took it appart and found the lens motor had basically jumped its gears and jammed, the only solution was to replace the lense section (as motor & gears were built in) as no other part was damaged but to do that it would be at least £70 and the camera had dropped value to £160 and i could get a better camera for that amount...so my advice get a new one. and sell the remains on eBay.

Lens stuck


I just wrote a warning about these "telescoping lens" cameras, You need to get the lens back on track. maybe steady pressure, applied to the back of the camera with the lens on a towel on a table to ensure it remains parallel to the camera body.
