Question about Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera
Posted by Anonymous on
The lens error message is often the "kiss of death" for these cameras. If the camera was dropped or bumbed hard while the lens was extended it has internal damage that not likely can be fixed. However, sometimes sand and dirt are the problem and I got lucky fixing one with an air compressor. First install fully charged batteries. Push the little button in front of the camera, it is low and next to the lens, and remove the aluminum ring that goes around the lens. Start smacking the camera on a semi hard surface like a phone book, hitting it on the camera corners and edges, but careful not to hit the corner of the camera hard where the battery door is, battery door breaks easily. Have access to an air compressor, canned air is not powerful enuf. You will need a small air tip, like a trigger operated air blower with small diameter tip. Blow compressed air thru and around all the thin little slots around the lens, alternating smacking the camera while attemting to turn it on. If sand particles are locking the lens, hopefully this will clear it. Good Luck.
