Question about Canon PowerShot SD750 / IXUS 75 Digital Camera
The same thing happened to me:
When i tried to turn on my camera it sounded like the lens tried to open and come out but it then stopped as if stuck then the camera beeped a bunch of times and then gave me the black screen with that reading "screen error, restart camera". Its really retarded that it tells you to restart the camera when there is no way to actually "restart" it. But heres how i fixed it...
I held the camera flat so i could see the lens and the lens looked a bit tilted like it tried to come out but wasn't perfectly aligned so it got hung up. At the same time that i pushed the on button I used my fingernail and pulled on the lens side that was more sunk it (to even it out). That's all it took. it popped out and vuala!
(I've heard you can also try tapping the camera on a table or try pushing the lens back into the camera but only try these when you got nothing else to lose.)

This lens is in need of repair, though contrary to what some of the
people on this site will say, paying $150 for a lens repair is
Usually a problem like what you are having is just a realignment and cleaning of the lens and gears. This in itself is a relatively cheap repair ($50-$75) Sometimes however, the plastic housing covering the lens itself gets damaged, or the lens twists inside the housing, which many times can require purchasing a new lens (this will run $150 or so).
