Hello, I have a Canon powershot SX100 IS, and everytime i turn it on it beeps and says on the screen "lens error, restart camera". I have tried tapping it, shaking it a bit. turning on and off. Put in new batteries, taking memory card in and out. Turning it on at different angles. Connecting to the computer. But nothing is working, it wont even let me look at the photos when i press the play button, and that doesnt even require opening the lens! please help! thankyou.
