CAMERA FROZEN..nOTHING WORKS. sAYS "LENS ERROR. rESTART CAMERA"


try to remove the ring over the lens- this is just alluminium ring. I had same problem when my camera felt on floor... i thought its wrecked ... but it was 4 months ago and since that i made thousands of photos and its working fine. Remove the ring, i did it by forcing it, twisting and when removed - lens error was not appearing. I fixed that ring and placed back with a little super glue. Everything is ok.

Lens error: restart camera


If you get that message the lens is stuck.
You should take the camera to a repair center.
They should repair it under warranty.
I have seen this problem a few times already.

PowerShot SD630 lens stuck out, says lens error, restart camera


This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Canon ixus 75 digital camera reset?


Hi

What you are seeing is just an 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.

Find a few Canon repair shops, and describe them your problem, and they should be able to give you rough estimates. I've had estimates for same mechanical problem from $200 to $15.

If you are adventurous (and the manufacturer's warranty is expired), remove all the tiny screws, and see if this is something simple, and you can tell repairman what specific part you need - their estimate will be more accurate that way.
