Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera ?

I dropped my camera and the lens won't retract. The screen reads lens error restart camera. Even though I have removed the battery to restart the camera, it won't correct its self. The lens stays out.


Answers :

When you reset the camera you should be able to hear the gears of the camera lens turning. The problem is that the lens is out of alignment so the lens can't slide back in. As the gears are turning, straighten out the lens (you might have to try forcing it in different directions if it's not obvious which way the lens is bent) and it should slide back in. You obviously want to be gentle enough to not break it, but sometimes you have to use a little bit of force based on the severity of the drop. You also might need to try a few times since the gears will only run for so long before stopping. I have fixed a few cameras this way but if the lens is bent too far out of alignment you'll have to get it profesionally fixed.

Lens error I have an ixus 230 HS - I turned it on the other day & I must have bumped the lens or something, as it shut down. The lens stayed out though & wont close, when i turn it on it starts beeping at me & "Lens error, Will shut down automatically. Restart camera" comes up on the screen, it then shuts down again. I have removed the battery & the memory card, but to no avail.

My Nikon S210 is not focusing correctly. It's just recently started to act in this manner. I had a 'lens error' screen this summer after getting some sand in the lens from my pocket and I beat that one by 100's of 'on' then 'off' attempts and removing the battery when it wouldn't turn off. Literally a couple hundred times over the course of a week and it finally came around and started operating correctly. I've taken maybe 50 pictures since then and kept the camera in it's case when in my pock
