I have the same problem. How do you restart the camera. I have pulled the battery and SD card, but can't get to a menu screen to restart to camera.

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:

SOURCE: 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.

Your problem is common to that model and actually to most of camera models. Usually it has foreign materials interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. It's also possible that the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension which eventually damaged gears or other parts. You should also check if your battery has enough power to supply the lens mechanism, easy way to find out is to use a new charged or brand new battery.
If you are still under warranty, I suggest to bring you camera to the store or service center. If not then here are some things that you can do to try to correct it. I hope it will work for you.

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that will require professional repair. If it has not been dropped, your problem is likely due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the camera may require professional repair.
