Lens error 1 week after warranty expired

Cay Horstmann, Amazon
21 May 2011
  • Summary: After 1 year and 1 week, promptly after warranty expiration, I too get the dreaded lens error. One must admire Canon for its amazing timing, but the sad fact remains that I can now junk this thing.

Poor quality, autofocus died within a year from purchase

Dreamer, Amazon
3 April 2011
  • Summary: Just about a year later (I purchased March 30 of last year), the autofous died without any warning. My previous canon powershot camera died with the similar reason too. I called Canon but obviously it was just a day beyond the warrenty and my camera was not eligible for repair. I tried to ask the rep about the reason underlying spontaneous dying of autofocus, which seems happening two times in a row in my case, and was told that he had never heard about this kind of...

Lens bBroke after 2 weeks of use!

Nicole Shattuck, Amazon
24 March 2011
  • Summary: I ordered this camera and the lens broke after 2 weeks of using it. When it was working it was a fantastic camera...but the lens was having difficulty retracting and protruding and the lens wouldnt focus. I am highly dissapointed that I spent so much money on a product that didnt last!

Nothing but problems

Michael Kauffman "michaeljoel", Amazon
18 July 2010
  • Summary: I have used Canon cameras for many years and was excited to get this model. But I have had nothing but problems with "Lens Error" issues preventing me from using the camera (this is actually the SECOND one I've tried... exchanged the first one because of the problem and now it's back with this second one.) Also the bottom piece that covers the battery compartment has fallen off. It's also slick looking but that makes it a bit slick handling...

breaks too easily

M. Munoz, Amazon
21 April 2010
  • Summary: the LCD screen broke on the first occasion, while being carried inside a semi-rigid case in my jacket pocket. Warranty was refused because they say it's an impact. I've owned two previous versions, and I can say this one was definitely not abused in any way, it's just too brittle. I could get it repaired at about half the cost of a new one, but I think I'll buy a different brand instead, I'd feel very bad if I replace the screen just to break again next time I take it...

Lens Error, Restart Camera

A. Cantu, Amazon
4 March 2010
  • Summary: Before you buy any Canon camera you need to be OK with the possibility that your camera may become a brick. You see, Canon cameras often times get the error message, "Lens Error, Restart Camera", and you can do NOTHING about it. Don't believe me, just call Canon and ask them yourself. This is my second Canon camera to have this problem, my first being the PowerShot SX200is, and Canon REFUSES to acknowledge the problem.

  • Summary: I have owned this camera 6 months and it has aleady stopped working, while on vacation, the lens stayed open and the camera would no longer power on. I returned it to Canon for warranty service and just received an email telling me it's not covered under the warranty. They want approx $150 to repair it. I would never but a Canon camera again. This is unacceptable.

Good... until 'Lens error' started showing up.

Manuel Morales, Amazon
2 December 2009
  • Summary: I loved this camera because of the design and portability, I just started hating it some weeks ago when the infamous 'lens error' started showing up. It worked for about 6 months. This is my third canon camera and the second one that has this issue. I think I should consider some other brand.
