Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SX120 IS Digital Camera ?

In my digi cam it shows lens error.whats the reason

I have taking photos for the last three weeks off our high school football games with the camera set up in shutter priority, iso at 1250 and my f/2.8. now for some reason the f reading is showing LO and all photos are black.
