Your shutter is driven by a small motor attached to the lens assmbly. It could be that which has died or more likely you have a sticky shutter. A small knock or a drop of soda can stop them from opening. Try switching on and very gently with a cotton bud see if you can help open the shutters. Whatever you do don't force them and force them out of shape. You may have to do this a few times to get in sync with the power up sequence but if you can get both shutters to open fully you should be in business. If they keep sticking I've seen one guy glue them open. Personally I'd rather fix them so they do their job.

When you turn the camera on the lense opens and the camera shuts off with the lense still open. I turn on again and the lense closes and then shuts off.

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.
