The same thing happened to my camera , and i fixed it all by myself. first , this may sound funny but try and blow dry all the edges and the sides because what might have caused your problem was some grain, sand, or if you have a case any material coming off from the case went into your lens causing it to jam up. then after the blow drying is complete  carefully hit the side of the camera off your palm or no a table this will get whatever is stuck in your camera will come out and try to also twist the lens a little bit , if nothing is coming out of your camera try giving it a harder hit. that should do the trick , hope i helped :)

Try these prcedures--
1)  Remove the batteries from the camera, wait a few minutes. Put a fresh set of batteries back in (preferably rechargeable NiMH 2500mah or better) and turn the camera on.
2)  Place the camera flat on its back on a table, pointed at the ceiling. Press and hold the shutter button down, and at the same time press the power-on button. The idea is that the camera will try to autofocus while the lens is extending, hopefully seating the lens barrel guide pins in their slots.

3)  Blow compressed air in the gaps around the lens barrels with the idea of blowing out any sand or grit that may be in there jamming the lens. Other variations include blowing with a hair dryer in “no heat” setting, or sucking the gaps with a vacuum (careful with this one).

Try above procedures one by one. If first one fixes the problem then don't do the other procedures.
Thanks for using Fixya Utilities.

Problem with Kodak EasyShare M753 My camera was working just fine before but then i try to turn my camera on and i get camera lens error 122 1,0,0 the lenses look crooked and after i try to turn it on it...

You can try to pull and twist on the lens as you turn it on. Sometime this will work. Do it carefully.
Sometimes the lens jumps out of the track, and may be able to be put back with some careful help.

If not, sell as a used as is or repair camera on a site such as Amazon on Ebay.

Screen says lens error and it will not close

Hi Dear,

This error is due to some fault in alignment of the lens. This is a hardware problem.
Hence, i will recommend you to take it to nearest service center and hand over it to some technical expert guys. Trying to resolve it on your own might worsen the issue.

Hope this will help you. If you need more information on this, please do write to us.

Have a nice day.

"lens error,restart camera"

This is a common problem for many digital camera. First if this camera in under warranty send it back. Its broken, you may be able to get it to work if wiggle the lens a little when you turn it on. The lens is jammed and the camera detects this when you turn it on. Turning it off should reset it, but if its still jammed you will get a error. Digital cameras are very complex devices and it does not take much to break some of them. You can check with canon in the past they whould sometimes offer you a chance to by a similar refurbished camera for a very reduced price over a new replacement.

Lens is jammed for Canon Powershot SD200

Lens errors (E18 errors on Canons) are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Lens error

same happened with mine. some people pushed it back in or used a thin driver to jam in in between the side with the bigger gap.
try it while you press the on button.

Mine is still jammed so I'm going to either get it replaced but try disassembling it first.
