Hello

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel\012 after dropping it. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the \012probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

Use\012\012\012\012\012\012\012 these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.

Firstly ,\012 try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.

Try holding the \012shutter button while switching on the camera.

Look at the lens , \012and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then \012try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).

Try gently \012pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may \012cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.

Another\012 way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and \012then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to\012 not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and \012down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the \012camera is enough to get things going again.

Try hitting your \012camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of \012your hand.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair \012center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to \012replace the camera.

If it is still under warranty I would suggest\012 you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any \012off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about\012 warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.

Hope \012the advise is useful.

Regards
Andrea

My Canon 40D suddenly came down with the dreaded Error 99 for no apparent reason. I have tried all the usual, battery, memory card, lens, but no luck. Even on the bulb setting the shutter won't stay open. It clicks as if taking a photo but then the error message appears. Is it a job for Canon? Thanks Trevor Lx

I won a Canon PowerPoint S3 IS at an eBay auction; it was in the working camera listings. It turned out that in the finer detail, the owner said that everything worked except for the "Memory Card Error" found in the display window. I posted this a few days ago. I now have the camera, and I've tried two different memory cards (one came out of another Canon PowerPoint, and it does work) and neither works. Still have the same message;"Memory Card Error." This item was incorrectly listed as working.
