I'm sorry that the lens of the camera is not retracting. Please make sure that the battery is fully charged and there are no dust particles near the lens which stops retracting. Check if you are able to access the Menu. If yes, then, please Initialize the camera under Main settings 1 Menu. If you are not able to access the menu, you may have to power reset the camera by removing the battery and press n hold the power button for 1 minute continuously. After that leave the button and insert the battery and check if it helps. If the issue still persists, your camera will require service.

Why won't my camera turn on


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.

Canon Powershot SI screen goes black after taking a photo


That sounds like a sticky lens shutter. They usually have to be replaced, as they usually will need parts. When the camera is working look inside the lens and take a picture(with flash turned off). You should see a black shutter door clicking shut in the lens. When the camera acts up, look inside the lens again. If the door is staying shut full time, that is your problem.

Problem


I had the same problem and fixed it.
The problem is related to the lens not working properly and jammed up.
When powering on the camera, the focus goes in and out and the lens spin and then the message is displayed to turn camera off.When I turn the camera off, I noticed the lens did not fully hiberate into the camera like it did before the error message.

So to fix the problem I did the following:
Turn the camera on, when the lens extended out, I slightly rotated the outer most lens clockwise and counterclockwise to free the lens from the jammed position.

The error no longer appeared and the camera stayed-on.When I shut the power-off the lens completely hibernated again like normal.

Hope this helps.
