Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. 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.

You can also have a look at THIS link.

Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

Regards
Andrea

I have a Canon IXUS 40 how do i turn on the digital zoom



Heres the support site for that model http://www.usa.canon.com/consumer/controller?act=ModelInfoAct&tabact=SupportDetailTabAct&fcategoryid=224&modelid=10599
I would never use the digital zoom on a camera, as you can do exacttly the same on a computer - so keep the full optical setting and the you can zoom in and crop using a PC - with a lot more control

I have a Canon Ixus 40 and the screen does not work now can it be fixed for a reasonable cost.


Depends on whether or not the camera can take a picture OK.
If no picture, you may wish to replace the camera.
If it takes a good picture, the LCD ranges from $40 - $120 and labour to change it. Contact Canon for a good service center.

Camera will not turn on. Battery fully charged;


Hello,
You can give it to an expert for repair, he can repair it for less as there must be just a fuse problem, which can be fixed for a very less amount.

Canon Powershot A70 zoom button stuck


You'll need to send this away for repair. Sounds like sand or something in the lens assembly. You can take it to a local camera store and get a repair quote for about $20. They'll send it to an authorized repair depot and hear back how much a cleaning will cost if this is the problem.

Generally speaking, there is nothing you can do to correct the problem other than to send the camera to the appropriate factory service center for correction of the error. Following the repair cost you should decide, whether it worth it.
