Conon powershot A450 lens error

Try to use fresh batteries, and push the barrel in and out when it turns on to see if the 'binding' of the focusing gear can go away when you do this manipulation of the barrel.

If the error continues, maybe the camera needs service by Canonusa.com.

I could not, unfortunately, find a reference for an a450 on the website, though. Is that an older model?

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'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 if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Cannon sx100: displays lens error, restart camera

If your lens received impact damage it will need to be replaced. This is about a $150 bill at Canon. One thing that can happen is the flex cables that attach the lens to the camera system board may have come loose. You will have to have the camera opened by a qualified tech to see if this may be a solution.

Lens error, restart camera

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.
