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:

You have to disassembly your camera for it, including the lens assembly.
Even if you have experience and skills in fixing electronic devices, I don't recommend it, since any particle of dust will get inside the lens and your camera, and will affect it.
The recommended place to perfom such cleaning activity is a Clean room (class 3 or higher), and have handy the proper cleaning tools.
Disassembling the lens is tricky and also needs a lot of patience and technique skills to do it properly.
Imagine that by accident a spring pops up a tiny metal ball (1.5 mm diameter) and you lose it in your home, then because of it, your lens will not work properly.
If it has warranty, I do recommend you to send it to cleainig to a professional repair and cleaning service.
If still you have questions or doubts, or need a cheaper quote for it (after get some quotes from local repair centers for comparison), you can contact the ebay seller Great_items_2004

Testimonial: "THANK YOU"
Camera likely has a common short that comes up on the G9 camera. You just need to get the camera serviced and you'll be back in business again. The site that specializes in service for the powershots is: camerasandparts.com They're amazing if you need help with one of these, that's all they deal with. The good thing with them is they do the correction so that common short never comes back again on the G9. Good luck, that's the place if you need help with a powershot model, they're excellent when it comes to service for these.
