Hi sadloserx:
I am inserting this from a previous post, since this seems to be the same problem.
Also lens problems have to be described in full to see what is wrong. The following will give you some idea as to what I am saying.

This camera is telling you that there is a problem with the lens, either in the tracking, mechanical, or electrical circuit.
Try this: If the lens extends at all... then pull on the lens or push in to try to reset the tracking of the lens.
If the lens does not extend at all and makes noise, then it has problems in the lens gearing or motor.
If\015\012the lens makes no noise at all and you get the error with the shut\015\012down, then more than likely there is nothing that can be done.

Try this at your own risk:
With\015\012the camera off, gently hit the camera on a padded (folded towel) cloth\015\012on a solid surface, using one of the corners. This may jar the internal\015\012parts enough to make the camera work again.
BY doing this, you do\015\012risk damaging the camera beyond repair, however, if you have a camera\015\012not working anyway, it may be worth it.
I have fixed two cameras in the past this way. However, nothing is guaranteed.

Finally:
Find a repair shop and have it fixed. (These kinds of repairs can cost $150.00 or more). That will depend on your value and the age as well of the camera.
Sell it as is or for parts on a site such as Ebay.

Lens Error I fell while holding my camera. The lens was open at the time and when I got up I turned the camera off. I then turned it back on to check it and the lens opened and immediately closed with the "lens error" on the screen. I can turn it off and on and the lens will always open but closes as soon as it has opened with the lens error on the screen. The shutter opens but closes also, like the lens. Can this be fixed?
