Canon A630 lens error and black photos

\015 Hi,A few days back, when I switched on my camera (Canon Power Shot A630), I got the message, "lens error, restart camera". I was unable to restart camera as the lens wouldn't close. After several attempts, it finally did. when I tried to switch on the camera again, the lens was working fine, but I couldn't take any pictures. The camera comes on, and all the controls seem to be working fine, except when I click, the picture is completely black and the display screen is black as well. Can someone please tell me how to fix this problem?\015

The lens will not retract. A message says "lens error, restart camera," but the camera will not restart. The camera is a Canon PowerShot S3 IS. I can hear a "whirring" or motor noise when I try to start it, but the lens will not retract and it will not take photos or allow you to review photos. Batteries are just fine. I imagine it's the gears, but I wish I could have it repaired for not a lot of money.

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. O ... Canon PowerShot S2 IS Digital Camera
