  • Taking the battery out for a couple of minutes and trying to open the lens again, or
  • banging the living hell out of the thing on a hard surface to see if that will knock some sense into it.


  • those listed above are the two most common fixes for lens errors like that.

    sounds odd but alot of people have had their cameras fixed from the bottom of the two I personally have not tried it but think if something just needs to be re adjusted im sure it would help

    did you by any chance here any grinding on it when it was going in and out?

    Canon would suggest the following "send in for repair or buy a new one" so hopefully one of those above helps.

    let me know

    Thanks

    My brench of camara name Powershot SD1300is digital. when i turn on with my canon camara i see lens error will shut down outomatic restart camara.


    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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

    System Error


    I had the same problem. It was because the lens had just begun to retract and then jammed. I tried pushing back it in to no avail. I was considering it was time for a new camara anyway. Hoping to get a little more life out of it, with nothing to lose I was about to take it apart to see if I could clean out any obstruction as other posts had reccommended. Before I did that, I let my Mr. Goodwrench cousin take a look at it. Instead of trying to force the lens back in, he pulled it out. Apparently the slight play in the lens allowed him to do so and whatever was jamming the lens from retracting must have fallen out. Suddenly, the lens retracted and the camara is working fine. So before you throw the camara away or take it apart, try pulling out on the lens housing. You may also have to move it slightly back and forth while pulling out to get whatever is jamming the lens to move out and away releasing the lens to retract again.

    Lens Error 126 01 000


    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

    Lens error, restart camara issue in SD900


    Hey GeorgiaPlum,
    What is most likely happening is there is damage to the lens or the lens mechanism and you should have the camera looked at by an authorized service technician. I will say that digital camera repairs often exceed the value of the camera, but it can't hurt to get an estimate done. I hope this helps!

    Sincerely,
    Allan
