The lens is stucked as if it was on - Canon PowerShot SD1100 IS Digital Camera


Answers :

Your problem is likely due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can\015\012prevent the full power of the batteries from\015\012flowing into the camera.\015\012Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and\015\012wipe the camera contacts firmly with\015\012a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush,\015\012steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen\015\012into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of\015\012the batteries and place them back in the camera and give them a full\015\012charge (assuming that you're using rechargeable batteries). This\015\012cleaning clears\015\012the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, it may be time to replace your batteries, or the\015\012camera may have\015\012a problem that requires professional repair.

Lens barrel is stuck in the out position on my Canon Powershot SD1100 IS. Error message reads: "Lens error, restart camera". To my knowledge the camera has not been dropped and the barrel seems to be properly aligned. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera

I dropped my Canon Powershot SD750 digital camera and the extended lens was stuck open. I had no other options so I opened the camera up to fix it. I corrected it, but after I put the camera back together it takes poor pics. In normal light conditions it over exposes and pic looks really bright and also has many lines going through the picture?
