Question about Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera
The lens retracts with a jerky halting motion when I turn the camera off or zoom out from telephoto. I haven't dropped the camera, gotten it wet or anything. What to do?
1. Do you have a camera case?
2. Or do you not?
The dust fibers from the case might have gotten into the cracks of the lens causing it to jam. So everytime it retracts, it jams. That's what i'm guessing. My old camera got jammed from sand grains on the beach.
- Take a thin strip of paper, and insert it in the cracks of the lens and circle around the lens and find any dust or anything. The paper slip should come out a bit dirty if that's the issue.
- Gently nudge the lens around, until you hear a click. The lens might have jerked into another position from the inside.
