Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera ?

Flashing yellow light -- lens won't retract

\015 I know the memory card was full, so I deleted a couple of shots, then took a couple of new shots. Afterwards, the lens would not retract. When I try to power up, a yellow flashing light comes on with short beeps, then the camera automatically powers down again. I replaced batteries and rechecked the memory card -- no problems there. Also checked the manual, but no additional ideas there. Thanks for any suggestions you can offer.\015

Answers :

Lens is jammed, you need to get it back on track. Gently push lens back in with a flat object to keep it straight, like a tabletop while powering it on. This may or may not work, but a jammed lens on these styles of cameras is common and renders the camera useless.
