Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Cannon SD 1000

The lens is stuck out all the way and the lens cover is open.
When turned on the screen says Lens problem, restart and shuts down.
Any thing I can do? I am pretty handy with this stuff, but this one has me stumped.
Thanks for the help.
PS What is the reset hole at 8:00 on the front for?

How do i restart my cannon ps sd;1000.. the lens is stuck open and i can't shut restart it


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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Lens will not close


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
