I checked the damage and carefully reinserted the front lens.
The structure is quite simple:

  • There are three plastic clips holding the front lens in place
  • There is a plastic extrusion that makes the lens move in and out when the focus ring is moved
Just look inside and try to find the correct position and click it into place. If you have a friendly camera shop, you could ask them to do it for you...

Get a quote first for the repair as this lens is the least expensive Canon lens and it could be that the combined cost of postage and repair will exceed to cost of a brand new replacement.

Lens repair ef


I doubt it is possible to repair. These lenses are mostly made out of plastic pieces. There is probably something broken and/or bent. Lenses are manufactured with extremely great care. When a lens element is only a millimetre or two out of alignment you probably will get faulty images (flare, unsharp, focus shift, etc).
Take it to a repair shop and have them examine the lens if that's free of charge. Without photo's it is hard for me to judge if its total loss or not.

Hi, Unfortunately it sounds like the camera is beyond repair. When a camera's dropped like that there's a 50/50 chance that a mechanism in the lens has been broken and it's repairable. From the sounds of yours though, the fact that it won't come back out when you turn the camera on, it sounds like you're better off getting a new camera.

It needs to be sent in for service. You may be better off buying a new camera since the repair cost will start at $100.

Dropped my canon powershot sd400, now it won't work fine


Hi there, there is two possibilities. The first one is to check the lens barrier covers at the front of the lens are opening correctly. If the front cap is dented in any way it may prevent them from opening fully when switching the camera on. If this is the case, you may be able to manually assist the cover by gently pushing them open with something soft like a cotton tip. This wont fix the problem but may temporarily allow you to use the camera. The other possibility, is that the shutter assembly inside of the lens has been damaged. If you gently shake the camera you may be able to see something shifting across the image on the screen or even when looking through the front of the lens itself. If this is the case you would need to have a service centre replace the lens for you. The same applies for the front barrier however that repair would be much cheaper. Best of luck!

Broken glass on the lens


Are you kidding? A camera lens are a group of various lenses inside. I don't think it's repairable, but I'd say take it to a local photography store and you can get free advice. I think I understood you, but anyone would have to see the damage in person. From here, I'd say you are in bad luck...it's a goner. Also cameras are not designed to take a big fall like that. There is probably more damage than just the lenses.
