Canon SD630 Lens Error

Camera was working fine one day and the very next day the camera turns on, lens comes out and display goes blank beeps lens error, restart camera. I can turn camera off and the lens goes back in. When I turn it back on I get the message again. Only thing I can see is maybe the lens looks a little tilted, but still goes out and back in fine.Camera repair store wants $179 to fix. Is it worth it? I have had the camera for 3 yrs. now.

SOURCE: Cannon Power shot SD630 Lens Problem

We had the same problem after my wife accidently dropped ours. I disassembled and reasembled our camera, after assuming that the lens was not recognizing that it was closed, hence the error. I can try to fix your camera for $50 and you pay all shipping charges.

SOURCE: Camera Stuck with lens out. Beeps

I dropped the camera on the table a couple of times, twisted the front of it. Suddenly the lens retracted into the camera, the beeping quit, and now I can take pictures again. The Samsung website is horrible.

CAMERA FROZEN..nOTHING WORKS. sAYS "LENS ERROR. rESTART CAMERA"


try to remove the ring over the lens- this is just alluminium ring. I had same problem when my camera felt on floor... i thought its wrecked ... but it was 4 months ago and since that i made thousands of photos and its working fine. Remove the ring, i did it by forcing it, twisting and when removed - lens error was not appearing. I fixed that ring and placed back with a little super glue. Everything is ok.

PowerShot SD630 lens stuck out, says lens error, restart camera


This is probably THE single most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html

Lens error, restart camera


the beeping sounds means that your camera lens is stuck. contact the manufacturer (canon), for a possible solution...or they can even send u a new one. My friend dropped her SD630 and had the same problem...she contacted canon, and sent in her camera to be fixed, but it wasn't fixable, so canon sent her a brand new camera. hope this helps.

The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

Your Camera is full of sand and you can try blowing it out and banging it out. But I'd say it's time for a new camera. Regards Thestreeker
