I dont think so it sounds like something shorted out in the camera and it would probably cost an arm and leg to get it fixed. my guessing so

Lens is stuck and will not retract

The lens has probably got something in the retraction mechanism that is stopping it retracting. This can be something as simple as sand or grit or as a result of a drop or knock. In most cases the camera will need to be stripped apart to remove the lens assy before it can be repaired. This is best left to a professional camera repair shop.

A puff of smoke when you start up indicates worn valve seals.That's why all your work didn't fix the problem and it doesn't show a code. It's a pain in the --- job that requires some specialized tools so I guess it depends on how bad it bugs you,if oyu want to fix it.

Smoke and smoky odor

Suggest checking battery and battery contact area. Try a fresh battery. If not working, get estimate from Canon.
