Answers :

Stuck automatic lens cover is usually a very easy fix. A lot of times it's just a bit of gunk or dirt jamming it. Pay attention to the paper or vacuum fix. Do not recommend opening it as it is somewhat complex (tiny springs and shutters).

Lens error When I turn the camera on it says "Lens error, restart camera," and turns itself off. When I turn it back on, the same problem occurs. The lens covers aren't completely closed, and the entire lens seems to be sticking out a little bit, like it didn't retract all the way. Please help! Thanks. Turn on the camera, camera shows a canon logo, then before turns off it said lens error, restart camera

Screen blackness I have the same problem. The lens is NOT stuck - it does deploy and the lens cover opens. I have replaced the batteries, tried a differant memory stick, and I turn it on and off to reboot. None of these solutions work. The camera is only a year or so old - it doesn't get a lot of use so it is not mishandled. Does anybody have any suggestions?
