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:

I have a camera canon powershot and the lens was out of the camera while it was off. Now when i try to power on the camera the message error: "lens error. restart the camera".


you have a mechanical jam in the lens gear chain. It happens often when lens is extended, the camera may have slight impact or pressure on the lens, it damages the plastic gear chain and jams. You can try with very light force, jiggle the lens while tuning on the power to disengage from the jam. If this does not help, you need a help from repair technician. Average repair price for this repair would be around $115. -James

Nikon s200 when camera turned on lens error


You may have a jammed lens assy. When the camera is turned on, camera go through a few stages of processing to be ready to take picutre and if the lens does not respond mechanically, it will give you a lens error. Lens jams due to sand or impact (even unnoticable light impact). If the lens is extended out you can somehow grab the lens barrel lightly with two fingers while turning the power on and nudge it side by side. If this did not help, take it to a reliable local technician for a diagnostic(should be free). Good luck. -james

E18 error on Canon ixus40 - lens stuck


The E18 error is an error message on Canon digital cameras. The E18 error occurs when anything prevents the zoom lens from properly extending or retracting.[1] The error has become notorious in the Canon user community as it can completely disable the camera, requiring expensive repairs.
A quick internet search for "E18" + "canon" quickly reveals hundreds of similar complaints.
ConsumerAffairs.com reports that the "lens has a feature called bellows claw, which is a gear that physically extends and retracts the lens. A piece that holds the lens, the barrier plate, is not large enough and can sometimes cause the bellows claw to malfunction, resulting in a stuck lens". The result is a black screen that only contains the error message, E18. Another problem mentioned on the site blames a sticky iris in the lens, caused by grease entering inside from the microphones built into the lens. The buildup freezes up the ability of the lens to open.

Canon IXUS40, rubber(?) seal between lens rings & body keeps popping out


It can be replaced, but requires removing the front face of the camera. Here's an example disassembly. Proceed no further than removing the front face to install the seal:

Not sure where you could find a replacement other than from another (broken) camera. The seal is mainly intended to minimize sand and grit from entering the camera, but is not necessary for operation of the camera.
