There is no reset. It should reset by itself.If so,Call Canon, they will hopefully fix or replace the unit.

Lens could not be retracted back


Try this it may work. Turn on the camera. While still on remove the battery. Leave for 30 secs and reinstall the battery while still in on mode. Switch off and switch on. This may work to reset.

I didn't drop my camera or even touch it and it started saying lens error and automatically shutting down. How do I fix this?


Remove the battery and also the memory card and keep aside. after about 30 minutes reinsert the battery and hold down OK button, then switch on to see if the camera resets with the lens correcting. If the fault does not clear, repeat once again but hold the lens on the palm and tap softly to reset the mechanism from any blocks.
If none of the above works you will need help to open and check.

Canon Ixus 130 gives message "Lens error Will shut down automatically Restart camera"


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try.

Lens error message? Worked fine the last time I


Hi,


Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended. If the camera is still under warranty, before trying any of these, please please first contact your camera's maker to see if they'll cover the repair, or to determine how much they'll charge for the repair. Who knows, you might get lucky. But if they quote you a number that's higher than the value of your camera, you may want to consider the following methods.

Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to auto focus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots. Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).


Thank you!

Turns on then shuts down automatically


As long as the battery is fine - try taking out the memory card and turning it on maybe? Sorry, but the lens are probably broken. Does it give an error message?

Lens Error. Restart Camera. Camera gives this error message and then shuts off. I can't access photos or function buttons. What can I do?


Press the "MENU" button and navigate to the reset command and reset the camera. That may get the camera to function properly.
