Hi there i like to inform you that its a lens guide pin problem. It is damaged or out of lens guide line. Thats why its stuck. The solution is only replacing the lens. But before that if you want to take a risk then on the camera and give a twist on the lens. Be careful. not much twist, just little. After that turn off / on the camera. If its working then fine. Other wise only the solution is contact with the service center and replace the lens.i am sure your camera lens position like a below mentioned picture.. before all this try to follow those step for luck.


1. Ensure batteries are fully charged.
2. Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.
3. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
4. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
5. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

Hello,

Your camera's problem is the lens itself. There is something making it stuck, this problem can't be repaired. Take it to Canon or a reliable camera store to get it fixed.

Hello

Unfortunately a "lens error" message is not something that you will be able to fix. This error indicates a system failure and requires the camera to be sent in for servicing and repair.

You may find it more cost effective to purchase a new camera as opposed to the repair price on your current camera.

Canon G5 Lens error message


Defective mechanism, a stucked mechanism is present. camcorder are smart it can detects error and shuts down itself for safety. earlier models dominoes the defect if the user is not quick enough to react when something goes wrong with the camera. You need professional service to fix it.
