Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera ?

Canon SD600 Elph

\015 Hello, my camera is posting the following error at startup each time: Lens error, restart camera. The lens is functioning fine, retracting and extending. Do you know how to resolve this? Thank you. Beth\015

Answers :

When the lens will not retract and camera is not functional (no picture on\015\012display, and does not shoot) , and you already tried replacing\015\012batteries with a new fresh set (ensure please) , and then restarting\015\012camera with no memory card inside, then camera is faulty.
\015\012
\015\012Try an\015\012easy fix by pushing gently the lens (do not force them, just help them)\015\012while you turn off camera at same time. Try also switching the mode\015\012selector.
\015\012
\015\012If still no luck , then the camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.
\015\012
\015\012Possible reasons are :
\015\012
\015\012\015\012
    \015\012
  • Faulty lens mechanism or jammed lens (camera usually turns off by itself in this case)
  • \015\012
  • Main board faulty.
  • \015\012
  • Ribbon cable to main board broken or connector defective.
  • \015\012
  • If there is no power at all it is the connector from batteries to main board, this is also a ribbon cable.
\015\012
\015\012If the camera is less than one year old will be replaced by manufacturer.
\015\012
\015\012If your warranty is expired you can get an estimate for repair from\015\012manufacturer, or from a third party like Advance Camera here :Advance Camera Repair you can book the repair online.

How to format an SD card on a Canon SD600 camera when the menu says "memory card locked." The memory card is in the unlocked position. When we put the SD card in another Canon camera (SD780 IS), it works fine, and will store a photo. It appears that something in the SD 600 camera itself is preventing the card from functioning. Can you offer a solution to this problem?


Could be that you have the wrong memory card.\012SD600 will only work with the old SD cards, but the SD780 will take the SDHC cards.SDHC was intended to give 4gb or more of storage, while the old SD started as 16 mb.  Different camer ... Canon PowerShot SD600 Digital Camera
