Canon power shot sd 750 fell on the floor and is the lens are stuck open and keeps giving me a error for lens. the lens part fell so the lens now are uneven. is there any way i can fix this?

Lens errors 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 are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) 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. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:

My lens is stuck half way out.

try Googling "E18" and read about this error signal and the many possible fixes. In your case sometimes gentle (really gentle) inward pressure on the lens tube while turning camera on (or off) will get it going again. Best wishes
