Question about Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera
Can you explain a little more detailed how and where you stuck the paperclip or fork.
im just really confused
Well, for one, there's no guarantee that this will work for all people with this problem, it just happened that I lucked out since I know there was no damage to my camera and it was only 3 weeks old. But I was sitting at my desk and decided to give it a shot with one of the tines on a fork.
All I did was pull the shutter over the lens apart with my fingers and place the tine of the fork in the bottom right corner between the rim of the shutter and the outer rim of the lens. Then, as I powered the camera on I just pulled until the lens extended - which did require some force, but not much (it's likely the camera could get more damaged by the amount of force necessary - so it's 50/50).
Of course it was stuck in the extended position for a moment, but I simply turned the camera off and back on again and now all is well. I've been using the camera just fine with no issue ever since. Hope this helps. Good luck.
