I think that my camera has recently been dropped after lending it to my chuldren for the day and every time i turn the camera on i get a message that says E24 the lens opens and straight away closes again making the camera inoperative ??? please can anyone help me fix this problem
It turns out that one of the wires connecting the LCD screen with the camera body probably is broken.
It is a simple to remove the LCD cover and reconnect the wire, but it requires manipulating very small objects. The clip that you must re-insert the wire into is scarcely 1mm x 4mm. I recommend a bright light, magnifying glass, tweezers, and a very small phillips screwdriver.
It might also be possible to aquire a replacement cable from Canon. E-mail them...

I think you have broken (accidentaly with the fall) the cable with several wires that connect the LC display.
My real advice is that you take your camera to a store were they can give you direct support desmanteling the camera and replacing the cable or fixing it.
However, Zair already had a problem like yours and the best solutions was given by BowerR64. You can consult on the following page:

I read of a simmilar problem - a "zoom brush", caused by a faulty part, number CL1-1006-000. Usualy it appears earlier in the cameras career though...
Did you try leaving it battery-less for a bit longer than the short changes? Remove it from all possible power sources(There is a small battery inside the main battery compartment) for at least a few minutes. It should reset it in case its just a system crash. Just be aware that after the reset it will ask you to input date and time, and theres another known bug of most of the buttons freezing after inputing date/time. should be fixed by pressing the display button.
Hope you manage to fix it somehow...
