Question about Canon PowerShot SD850 IS Digital Camera
Cannon SD850 IS 2 months old. The lens will not close. When you turn on the camera it says lens error, restart camera
There could be a number of reasons for the lens error. ie. . sand in camera, impact damage etc. Typically the lens can be dissasembled and repaired by a competent camera repair technician. If you are certain that you did not damage the camera in any way I would send it back to canon for a warranty repair. If you however think you could have damaged it you are probably looking at around $100 to repair the camera. Hope this helps!

The Canon SD 850 has a host of issues. I experienced the lens error on the 30th day of my owning the camera and was able to get a replacement. Then, the replacement, after using just 2 times, would not start or turn on. I sent to Canon and they refused to honor the warranty saying their was water damage. It sat on a dresser, in the box, and was used only twice. They refused to do anything in regards to their so called 1 year warranty and I did not get this camera wet or even near any type of moisture. If I did, I would acknowledge that fact. You can buy earlier versions of this camera and newer versions but you cannot find this camera anymore so Canon knows they had an issue but will not stand behind their warranty.
