Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera

1 Answer

Lens spring/s A couple of weeks ago I got the dreaded lens error. In my case it was probably due to sand. I took the camera apart and when I came to disassembling the lens - the spring popped and fell on the floor - as I picked it up it caught in the carpet and I ruined it. So my question is where do I get a replacement without sending the whole camera back to Canon? Also is there 2 springs, as there seems to be hooks for 2?

Lens will not retract Monitor bland.. error message turn camera off remove lens

Hi.

I experienced the lens error message after taken the camera to the beach. Sure enough, there was sand all over the lens mechanism. First, I cleaned the area by blowing air to remove all sand particles (this took me almost a day). In my case, I did not have to remove the lens from the body of the camera. Once clean from dirt, sand or any other foreign object replace the batteries.

Lens error - clicking/gravelly sound when opening and closing and zooming. Comes up with 'lens error' on camera

The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

Dreaded E18 error lens will not retract

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here:

Apparently, you missed some sand and it just took a while to work its evil way into the works of your camera.

Problem with the lens

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:

Darkened Images

Sounds as if your diaphragm may be sticking due to either the camera or the lens. Look at the back of the lens and work the small tab with the aperture ring set to f32 (or 22). See if the tab moves smoothly but with resistance from a spring, or if it sticks or moves roughly. If it does this with other lenses too, another possibility is the aperture lever on the camera. Mount the lens and set it for f22 or so and use your depth of field preview to see if the lens is stopping down smoothly. In either case it may need professional repair.

My lens wont fully extend

My sister's camera was having the same trouble and after trying a few different things, i came across a solution that fixed her camera. Her error said "lense error, restart camera."

I held down the shutter button for a few seconds, then i held down the power button as well. I tried it once or twice and then it worked. I hope this helps!
