SOURCE: Lens retracts with difficulty
1. Do you have a camera case?
2. Or do you not?
The dust fibers from the case might have gotten into the cracks of the lens causing it to jam. So everytime it retracts, it jams. That's what i'm guessing. My old camera got jammed from sand grains on the beach.
- Take a thin strip of paper, and insert it in the cracks of the lens and circle around the lens and find any dust or anything. The paper slip should come out a bit dirty if that's the issue.
- Gently nudge the lens around, until you hear a click. The lens might have jerked into another position from the inside.

SOURCE: Lens error, restart camera
Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

SOURCE: Canon SD800 will not turn on.
If youve had it under a year you can try sending it back for warranty and see if they can fix it. However their warranty service sucks if its not actually something wrong with the camera. Maybe try and find a local store that fixes cameras and see if they can clean it out?

SOURCE: Lens Error - won't retract
This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
