When taking a picture a message pops up that says "cannot be written to SD card"

Checks to make:-
1) Is there an SD card in your camera?
2) Is the SD card compatible with your camera?
3) Is the SD card write protected (Check notch top left hand corner of card)
4) Is the SD card full or nearly full?
5) Are you trying to write a file type (.raw) which is bigger than the capacity of the card or the remaining capacity on the card.

The lenses were stuck and on the screen it says "lens error".I do not know how it happened. We were just taking photos and when we are about to view them, it vibrated then turned itself off.

This message appears when the lens performs some unexpected operation.If the same message appears after you turn power back on please check that if there is something which blocks the motorized movement of the lens.If so clean it with cotton swabs or soft cloth.After cleaning power off and on again repeatedly two three times.

The LCD screen on my 40D shows the image taken, or the live view image, but there are large areas of missing image. Almost like the picture has been laid on a black background then a large piece torn out...

If the Live View shows areas of total black, the LCD is probably faulty and needs to be taken to a Canon Dealer for repair/replacement. I believe the pictures are still okay on the computer in this case?

Write protect message appears on screen

Sounds as if the memory card may be corrupted. In order to remove the write protect, make sure you have downloaded and saved all of the images from the memory card to your computer and then having the card in the camera you will need to run the format option and this will permanently remove the write protect as well as all of the images from the card.
The card should be able to be used again after the write protect is removed.

Message on LCD screen

'No Picture' usually means just that. There are no images in the memory. So go take some pictures. Check you have the control to the picture taking mode and not the Viewing mode Give the manual a good read.
