Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens Retraction I've had my PowerShot for seven months and yesterday, after taking a picture, my friend turned the camera off and the lens structure did not retract nor did the cover go over the lens. When I turn it on now, it says "Lens error. Restart camera." but it won't seem to fix itself. What should I do?

Since your camera should be still under warranty, best thing will be to conntact to the appropriate factory service center for correction of the problem. Good luck!

    Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem.
    In any case it could not make it worse

    Good luck!

Lens retraction noise in canon powershot pro 1

The lens needs to be dismantled, cleaned and lubricated by a camera specialist, the alternative is a lens that will eventually seize, shutting down the camera.

Camera lens wont open or close after being dropped. it won't turn on and take pictures

Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

Error 18 Lens retraction problem

The lens mech has been damaged (likely by being dropped or bumped). If it is not VISIBLY crooked or twisted, odds are that you have a broken gear or other internal. The only fix is a new lens assembly, which tends to be rather expensive ($80-$200), just for the part.

Please rate this solution.

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.

Here's 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 they're still worth a try:
