The lenses on these powershots are very sensitive... they don't deal with drops, dust or liquid very well.... I've rebuilt several of these and the 560 ...If you're careful and lucky you may be able to put the camera lens side down on a hard smooth, and flat surface and gently apply pressure to see if you can reengage the lens in the proper spot.
It will work sometimes but no guarantees.... it's worth try...

Since you had dropped this camera and an error code is showing up damage has occurred
The tracking for the lens guide is broken
This model Canon is quite expensive when new I know so having it repaired would be a good consideration to hash over. I would find one on Ebay for parts with a blank display so you will have the parts you need to have this repairs at a low cost

Camera was dropped and says "lens error, restart camera" but won't start


Restarting (turning the camera off and on) rarely helps. 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 ... Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some things that you can do 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, they're worth a try.

Lens error, restart camera


Lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. The lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.

How do i restart my canon camera?


Restart means turn it off and on. But I believe that you failed to mention the other words that go with this error, namely "Lens Error, Restart Camera". Sadly, restarting the camera usually does not work to correct the lens error.
