The clicking noise is the internal focus lens. The S500 and S600 are very succeptible to debris getting in the lens. Or, the focus lens was knocked out of alignment.

Remove the Back and front covers, then use a small flathead screwdriver to release the 2 hinges that hole the lens assy down; then unlatch the 2 ribbons cables. Now you can install the new lens assy. If you're not going to use the "old lens assy, can I have it, please? Thanks.

The lens won't come in and wont turn on.

The lens gears are stuck/stripped. The S500 has horribly soft gears. I have a nice stack of bad S500 lenses myself. Unfortunately, the lens will need to be replaced. The only cost effective option is a good used lens from a camera on eBay that maybe has a bad LCD or something.
