Canon Powershot SX 100 digital camera

Hi there. I purchases a canon powershot sx 100 digital camera and it accidentally got dropped. I noticed it not wanting to work right ever since. First off, when I turned it on the lens wouldn't come out and then the lens would come out when it got turned off. Then I changed the batteries and messed with it a little more and then the lens won't come out at all and now it beeps a few times but won't move. The green light still comes on then turns itself off after a few seconds. Can this be fixed? I noticed also that one of the lens pieces came off of the very front that is the cover. I have it though. Please help. It's only 6 months old! I'm so upset. Jodi

    My camera did not get dropped, however the lens will not open and it beeps. On the display screen it says "lens error and restart" What can I do to fix it?

The lens is broken and will need to be replaced, there are many camera shops on line that fix digital cameras...just pick one and get a quote.

How do i fix low battery problem, I get about 5 o 6 photos before it shuts down to low battery and i want to change the batteries.

Some batteries, although the correct nominal voltage for the camera, are not powerful enough for continued use. I have found the best solution is to use rechargeable NiMH batteries of at least 2100 MaH, preferably 2500 MaH.

I can't figure out how to set the self timer from the manual on a canon powershot sx 110

For the SX 110 IS 9 mp camera: With the camera in picture taking mode, Hold the bottom of the roller dial down at the point closet to the timer icon. Hold it for a couple seconds, then the screen will display the timer settings. Select the setting you want and start taking pictures.
