Why am I getting a Lens Error?

When I turn the camera on, the lens stays extended and the LCD screen displays "Lens Error/Will shut down automatically/Restart now." I've tried turning the camera off and on again but the error still displays. When the camera is off, the lens remains extended.

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

Canon will not fix my camera because of rust and corrosion. I am warning people not to send their camera back. They are trying to get out of actually fixing the situation by forcing an out of warranty repair. I barely used this camera so I know that the rust and corrosion is not something I caused.

If Canon won't fix it, go with this place. They have serviced multiple cameras for me and they are excellent (about half the price of Canon).

This is who I used: www.camerasandparts.com

Good luck with the problem

I fixed my Canon PowerShot S110 with the vacuum cleaner. I turned on the vacuum, placed the hose over the lens, turned the camera on and off and hooray . . . it worked! Good luck fixing yours. Kathie
