This happens if you are taking shot in low light condition where a camera shake is more likely to happen. use a tripod, or change the ISO to higher value. Using Higher ISO would help less camera shake but the image may have coarse. This is not malfunction.

Sit the camera in sunlight for few hours until its get warm and make sure the battery and memory card out and the doors must be open . After that insert the battery only and try to turn on and see the result.

I have canon SX 100 IS PowerShot and facing the error Lens Error Restart Camera. Please solve the problem.


The lens error indicates that the movement is inhibited possibly by sand or grit. It also may be misaligned or an internal component has failed. Here are a few links to some other things to try. With newer cameras I am usually hesitant to suggest these options since they include some more extreme procedures that may cause further damage if not done correctly, but since yours is probably no longer under warranty, they may save you an expensive repair bill. An older Canon camera is used to demonstrate these procedures but, the lens structure of these compact cameras is the same so the examples do apply to this unit. These procedures are effective about 60% of the time. Click on or copy and paste the links into your browser.

Canon Ixus 95. When taking pictures of people with dark clothes, the face and background (a stone wall in this case) become white and undefined. Is there a solution?


Sounds like your camera is exposing for the dark clothes and over-exposing the face. You could set the "exposure compensation" down a notch or two in this case for a better exposure.

When i go to turn the camera on it says "lens error, restart camera" I haven't had issues till today and it worked just fine yesterday, how do i get this to work?


Try to hold the camera with your right hand with its lens facing the ground. Now, while pushing the on/off button, tap or hit the camera's base on your left palm; do this several times. Chances are, there is a tiny grain of sand or dust build up on the lens' base. It would also help if while turning it on with the lens facing the ground, try to shake it with both hands. Please let me know how this goes.

Camera was dropped-- "Lens error-restart camera" message


If it is still under warranty , please repair it.
If it is out of warranty. Try to get a quote, it the quote is more than 50% of original value , forget it.
For digital camera's they die like flies. New ones are better and cheaper anyway.

1. Make sure you are holding the camera very steady when you take the photo.
2. Try increasing the number of pixels resolution to super fine. If this uses too much memory, invest in a larger capacity memory chip. (The one supplied with the camera has a fairly small capacity.)
3. According to the manual, the "portrait" mode softens faces, but there are other modes you can use.
4. Depth of field is pretty much WYSIWYG . Move back and forth and try with and without optical zoom until it looks right.
