    I have the Canon powershot SD750... i was looking at my pictures then all of a sudden it made a weird sound and shut off... When it turned back on it said lens error made a sound and shut off again...i did not drop it or get it wet.... I was simply holding it when this happened. This camera is about 6 months old and i don not have a warranty. I turned it off and on about 3 thousand times. I also took out the battery and memory card... it did not help... any suggestions???

    hi, i am having the same problem. i have owned the camera for about 3 months now and taken fairly good care of it. one day the lense just wouldnt retract anymore and all it will give me when it turns on is a "lense error, restart camera". is there a malfunction or is there an actuall "restart" button?

Hi

What you are seeing is a generic stuck lens error message:

Your lens needs to be cleaned, repaired or replaced. There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

I know, because I own one that charges a reasonable price to do the repair! (Google 'darntoothysam')
Just let us know if we can help!

You can also buy a defective camera online and use the parts to fix one from the two yourself.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Lens error restart camera I have a point and shoot canon sd750; the lens will not retract and i cannot take any photos nor view photos


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 ... Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Canon camera when turned on, lens will not


Hi

What you are seeing is a generic error message, starting your camera again won't do anything unfortunately.

You need to replace the lens, we have your lens repair available on our site for about $75! If we can help please let us know.

Canon powersho SD750, restart camera


Hi

Your lens is defective needs to be cleaned, repaired or replaced if you are seeing an error message that reads "E:18" or "Lens error, restart camera" or something similar. Turning the camera off and back on again will not fix the problem unfortunately.

There are online places that will do it for a decent price and there are others that overcharge by way too much.

I know this because I own one that charges a reasonable price to do the repair! (Google 'darntoothysam')

Lens error, restart camera is displayed


Hi

What you are seeing is a generic message that means there is some sort of problem with the lens, it could happen in many different ways such as sand or dirt in the lens gears.

A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.

Don't bother trying to send the camera to Canon if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.

I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.

We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.

Hope this helps,

Thomas
