Question about Canon PowerShot A560 Digital Camera
The following blog outlines some repair options for a lens error. They won't work for all cases, but they're worth a try if the camera's no longer under warranty:

With the suggestions of several posters and after changing batteries, blowing air around the stepped lens, brushing with a dry toothbrush, the lens finally extended. One poster suggested holding on to the lens gently and just barely twisting it back and forth a tiny bit to seat the pins. You can feel them catching. It seems to be a total fix. Have not had a lens error warning again but I will certainly have many things to try if I do. Thank you all so much.

I find on my SX1 IS that I'll get the lens error if I switch it on with the lens pointing upwards or maybe even horizontal. Point the camera down when switching on and it'll work fine at any angle afterwards. Don't ask why, but it works for me and my camera, and I just put it down to a quirk of the motor drive.

For this problem, it should be professionally serviced. You can have it serviced at this place: www.camerasandparts.com They look after the Canon Powershots only and the work through them is superb. They are not expensive at all. If you have a Canon with a lens error, they'd be the place. That's where a lot of people go for help with the Powershots. Good luck with it.

One of the common reasons for this problem is dust partials which stacked in your camera lens motor. It's bit hard to sort out if this is the case.

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
