Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
Dropped camera, cover of lens came off & black bits, put back, lens retracts in and out, but the two black "cover arms" won't move to close to protect the lens

I have same problem. I turn on the camera you hear it trying to come on, shows display pic for like 3 seconds and then shuts down. If I could get the lens to retract I am sure the camera would work.

SOURCE: lens error
yes, this happened to me, what you have to do is "snap" the lens back in place, if it is bent anyway. if it is not bent and it says lens error, does it the lens come in and out? if not then it is bent if so then there is a hardware error in the switch and you will have to send it to a profesionall. :) hope i could be some help :)

Yes it is the lens is exspencive but it canbe replaced. cost on the lens is about 150.00 for parts and labor. could be more or less at other digital camera repair shops.

If the lens does not extend/retract when the camera is powered on, then lens assembly is damaged.
Unfortunately, such Canon SX100 (and the SX110 too) has a very fragile lens assembly, and it's damaged very easily. Most of the times the internal gears, the plastic post guides and the motor are damaged at the same time, so the only solution is to replace the whole lens assembly.
The lens replacement requires a qualified camera repair technician, unless you want to try in repair it yourself, which requires tools (scredrivers, soldering iron, desoldering tool, magnifier glass with light, etc).
