The lens is damaged and needs to be replaced. Sometimes with use or maybe an accidental hit to the lens can cause a malfunction to the camera resulting in that error. Also if you for example took the camera to the beach, getting something like sand in the camera can jam up the lens and prevent it from fully extending or retracting.

My S3 in normal home use (no sand, wet or shock) just now displayed the ?Lens cover error? message, with cover only half open. Using a tooth pick I ?eased? it gently and it popped open, took a few trial pictures- fine, but would not fully close unless eased. Now will open and close slowly on own but error message blocks camera use. Then spotted cause - a loose thin sliver of silver trim from below flash around (there?s a gummy substance where it should be). When I first saw one end of this it was between the lens cover and the camera body as tho part of the mechanism, so I did not touch it. Now I know it?s jamming the lens cover operation is it OK to open the camera case to get it out? Questions: (a) Has anyone done this please? (b) Will this clear error message? Thanks.
I know this is really late, but I've been having the same problem with the S6 on and off for the whole year, and I suspected a loose part.
For a whole week, I couldn't turn on my camera, and the lens cap doesn't close until five minutes later. So I did what someone should really not do to a camera- I got my lens cloth and pushed on the lens directly as the stuttering noise occured.
It works! The camera now turns on and off! Right now, it works okay for a while, but I suspect it might getting weird again, so I will try pushing it in harder next time and see if that will fix it for longer. other than than, make a better choice the next time you buy a camera! =\
I hope this will help others who have the same problem. Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any other solutions and/or comments.
