Question about Canon PowerShot G10 Digital Camera
of a Lens Error: There are a number of ways with which a lens error can
be caused. Particulates might have managed to get into the mechanical
bits that allow the lens to retract, a purely physical interference with
the lens mechanism. If the camera was dropped, especially while the
lens was extended, there's a pretty good chance something might have
been knocked loose, such as the guide pins upon which the lens withdraws
How to Repair a Lens Error: As scary as a lens error might seem, there are some easy fixes. Before trying any of them out, however, first take a good long look at your camera warranty and maybe have a chat with the company. If the lens error will be covered under the terms of the warranty, go for it. Even some of the simple fixes mentioned below might void the camera warranty. Frankly, however, it's unlikely that a lens error will qualify for the warranty.
Try just some basic things first-just to make sure it's actually the lens that's broken. Replace the batteries with fresh ones. Failing that, replace the memory card.
