Question about Canon PowerShot SD30 Digital Camera
My camera lens did not retract back in when I shut off my camera. So now it won't turn on either. It's just stuck! HELP
I have same problem. I turn on the camera you hear it trying to come on, shows display pic for like 3 seconds and then shuts down. If I could get the lens to retract I am sure the camera would work.

Most lens errors on the SD30 are caused by the camera being dropped or bumped while the lens is extended. The impact causes the brass pinion gear to shear teeth of on the ring gear that extends and retracts the lens assembly. Even if the teeth are OK the impact may cause the tracking pins on the inner lens housing or front lens carrier to jump their tracking groves. About the only solution is to disassemble the entire lens assembly; replace the inner housing that contains the ring gear, or realign the tracking pins in their proper groves. Fortunately I have written an extensive repair manual that covers the step by step procedure of doing just that. It is available by emailing Jim at email@example.com.
