Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
A common cause of this error message is that something is obstructing the movement of the lens (i.e. sand in the lens). One thing you could try is blowing compressed air into the side of lens to try and dislodge whatever is stuck in the lens. If this doesn't work you could try putting the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointed up and holding the shutter button in, and while doing this turn the camera on. Camera lenses are complicated mechanisms and you could be getting this message for numerous reasons. If the lens mechanism is broken in some way you might have to have it looked at by a camera repair technician. I hope this helps!
