I just had the same issue when one of my children drop the camera. I'm not wanting to break anyone's camera but I was able to open the lens cover and pull the lens out and then turning it on it retracted and worked just like it should.

SOURCE: Lens Error ixus 800 is
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 are 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.

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.

I had this problem. Nothing was lodged between the body and lens, restarting multiple times did nothing, cleaning, torquing, twisting over several days - nothing.
So, figuring "what could it hurt?" I just smacked it on the heel of my hand a couple times. Now it works.
firm percussive maintenance saves the day once again.
