So my family got a Canon Powershot sx220 HS 9 years ago. It was a great camera and had lived that full 9 years.
When we got a new camera and left the camera in its place my dad decided to give it to me to do some photography. Then our baby got a hold of the camera, (when the lens was zoomed in all the way) and pushed the lens hard. Everything was fine but after turning it off the problem started.
The lens did retract but only on the non zoomed in place (where it did zoom out but stayed on its normal place whenever you turn on the camera) and then the pop up message "Lens error shut down automatically restart camera" was displayed.
The next day when i turned it on, it zoomed in a tad bit and then after some time, the error message returned.
When i shake the camera i hear something shaking. I tried every method but it wouldn't work.
So can someone please help me with this problem.
