    I borrowed my uncles camera( canon powershot A450) to take pics of my tank. To find out that the lens are stuck out and does not go back in. When I put the camera on it says: lens error reset camera.

    Could someone please tell me how to reset the camera or how I can fix it. I read the manual but theres nothing in there about resetting it.

    TIA

    Are you sure it says reset and not restart...

    i think it will have to be sent in for repairs. This usually happens when the camera is dropped or bumped when the lens is extended.

    Thanks guys. I gave it back to my uncle and told him he must take it for repairs or he must buy a new one.
