SOURCE: lens stays open

The lens would have to be repaired or replaced. You'd be looking at a $95-$125 repair

SOURCE: how do you fix 'lens error restart camera'

First of all, make sure your batteries are fully charged.
If it's still stuck, you could try hold the lens with two fingers, and when you turn the camera on, you **** the lens around just a little bit. Do not use a lot of force, just slightly **** it around. That might unfreeze it.
If that won't help, I'm afraid you're going to have to bring it to a camera workshop.

SOURCE: Lens error, restart camera

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'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:

SOURCE: I have a brand-new Canon PowerShot A2100 IS that

In the compartment where the batteries go, there is another smaller watch battery, pull out the watch battery, and re install, and that should fix your lens error, I have a Canon powershot A700 that was getting the same error code and it works just fine now!!
