LENS PROBLEM Lens keeps zooming in and out when I turn it on. After 4 times, the lens goes back in and it says on the screen, "Turn the power off and on again". Then it does the same thing when I turn it off and back on. Also, the shutter is not closing however it's also not all the way open. Almost half way but more open than closed. Please help!!!

A Canon A570IS will power on and and everything works with external power (3.5-3.7V, 2A. 3rd party) but is dead with batteries (two fresh alkaline or NIMH AAs). I have used parts (from junk 570s) and have replaced the main board, button board, flexicable that includes on/off switch & shutter, leds, etc.. Again, lens, flash, storage, LCD, etc. work with external power, but not with batteries. I am at a loss. Any suggestions?

Since the external power works, we need to know, first off, if the battery terminals have continuity with the external power supply contacts. That will tell us an important part of this puzzle. The one hard thing about this problem, is that what ... Canon PowerShot A570 IS Digital Camera

Hello I have a canon IXUS 960 IS. Yesterday when I was using the camera it only closed half way when powering the camera off. Now the camera doesn't open fully and when pusing the "play" button the power goes on and off straight away. At first I thought this was a problem with the battery so I have fully charged the battery and the problem is still the same. What do I need to do to correct the problem? Thanks

If the outside of the lense get dirty, those small particles may prevent the lense from opening and closing 100% as nomal times. I had the same problem with my Sony. Here is what I did.\015\012\015\0121- I cleaned the outside(sides not ... Canon IXUS 960 IS Digital Camera

When I push the power-on button the LCD display briefly flashes on with the "Pentax Optio" screen and then switches off. The lens is stuck half-way open, and the camera will not stay powered up.

Won't Focus I have had my Canon Powershot SD1000 for about 9 months now. I have had problems with the lens error and it getting stuck but have always been able to get it to work eventually. I had another bout with the lens getting stuck, was able to get it unstuck but now it won't focus at all. Normally I press the shutter down half way to get it to focus on my subject, but now it simply won't focus. I'm wondering if maybe my settings are off, or if it's an internal problem.
