Try craigslist.com, I have had very good luck there.

SOURCE: Camera turns on momentarily, beeps 3x, turns off with lens out

I think it could be a memory card problem. Can you try taking out the camera and put on the camera and see what happens.

SOURCE: lens error, restart camera

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 ...

Here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

This is may be a camera battery problem or a lens error. Try Li-ion batteries first and see if anything better

Lens error, restart camera


i had the the same lens error restart camera problem for almost a month.  If you haven't already, try restarting the camera with the sd1000 in the view pictures setting.  This may allow the lens to retract into position. Next, with the lens extracted, try looking down on the camera from the top to see if the lens is angled downward in any way.  If it is, this means it is jammed into place on one side.  Simply use your fingers to slightly push the lens into proper position.  If you hear a pop, you should be in business! hope this helps!

Hi, you can't fix the problem yourself.Because i think there is a problem with lens assy. and to fix this problem you have to repair or replace the lens assy. so pls take it to the Fuji shop. good luck........

Try this test. While turning camera off apply light pressure to the lens tube to see if there is a point where the gear engages to close the lens fully. This fault indicates broken gear teeth on the outside of the largest diameter barrel. Scrap the lens or use it for parts. A broken gear in the motor gear box will not respond to this test whatsoever. A lens that doesn't fully close, sticks up about a quarter inch and freezes on the Canon logo on power up inidicates the focus mechanism has not fully closed--perhaps a software glitch. The repair involves desoldering plastic ribbon connections and removal of the back panel to gain access to the focusing screw type motor armature to reset the small internal lens so it is flush with the back cover. This lens prevents the lens from completely closing. Reassemble and start taking pictures again.
