Canon ixus 65 lens error

I have accidentally dropped my canon ixus 65 and since the lens was opened, it got bent with the impact of fall. when i tried to switch on the camera it says lens error, restart the camera. also the lens would not go in coz its bent. I live in the UK but bought thi scamera frm dubai duty free when i was on holiday. I have tried contacting canon for repair but they are asking £.130 for the repair which i would not like to pay. Please help me whom to contact for repair here in England.

I'm tempted to tell you to send the camera to me in Canada for repair. Just the difference in exchange will save you money. LOL I siggest you check the phone book in your area for a shop that is authorized by Canon. They will have the equipment and software to do a proper repair. By dealing directly with the shop you may be able to negotiate a better price.

I was taking photos when suddenly my Canon PowerShot SD 1300 IS IXUS 105 read "Lens error. Will shut down automatically. Restart camera." Then the screen went blank. The lens will not retract....

There is something wrong with your lens barrel. It can be anything from some sand/dirt that got inside in which you try using some canned air to blow out the particles while continually turning it on and off. Usually what it is from is the camera being dropped, even if it is in a case or inside a bad. The jostle or direct impact of the fall will break some small gears or tweak the lens off of alignment. If it was from an impact then you lens barrel needs to be replaced and in that case the repair cost are usually as much as getting a new camera. You can send it into Canon and get it repair for a flat rate. Sorry about your camera.

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 ... 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.

Lens error, restart camera.......... that's the reading I get on the lcd display. after I restart the camera the message just appears again. please help!

Hello!

That error is the generic error for a lens issue. Has your camera been dropped with the lens extended? Was it exposed to liquid or sand? Did the camera accidentally turn on while it was in your pocket? Is the lens bent, cracked or twisted? It could really be a number of issues, most common being the pocket one I mentioned.

However, you are definitely able to get this fixed! It is quite affordable and worth it to keep your current camera. Check the link I provided and see what they can do for you. I wish you luck!!

My daughter dropped my Canon on the tile floor and now the zoom lens will not open. It says "lens error, restart camera." What do I do?

When the camera was dropped, the lens was most likely twisted. So you either have to try to force it back (be gently) or send it in to Canon repairs.
