Canon SD600 Lens error

My camera was dropped in the sand- I brushed/blew off what I thought was the majority of it. It still worked for the rest of the day- opened and closed, though it made a grinding sound, took photos, etc. Now, I get the 'lens error, restart camera' message. I've gotten an estimate to have it sent out- $250 to start! If I commit to buying a new one, I may try my hand at fixing it myself- what do I have to lose?! Any suggestions? Thank you :*)

Manually rotating sensor rotor inside camera and cleaning gear fixed the Canon "lens error" for me.

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!
