    I put the camera in my pocket and sat down with the camera zoomed out, now I can't even get the pictures off of it and just get the lens error message, the lens went back to how it looks in the off postion though. It had trouble doing that, can I fix it myself?

No i did not solve the problem. i require the repair manual to get it done by myself if i am lucky.

I've had this camera for a while. but one time i just dropped it on a blanket while the lens was out and than the lens stayed open and out. but it turned off. i turned it back on and it said lens error...

The following web blog talks about lens error problems, and what you can try to get the camera working again:
Sometimes, when a lens gets bumped or dropped and hit, the gears inside the assemby can jam, strip, or break. The blog discusses what you can try to get the camera working again, but if nothing works, the camera will have to be serviced. You can take it in to a local camera repair shop, or contact Kodac support:
Get an estimate before having it repaired, since the cost of repair can often justify buying a new one.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

Hi there, I dropped my camera and now the lens will not close. When I turn it on it makes a very high pitch sound and you can hear its trying to move the lens, it moves a tiny bit then the error comes up...

You would need to get it repaired, getting close to the holidays it's tough. The place that a lot of people go for help with these is They just service the Powershots and they are excellent for repairs on these. They used to offer a rush service option on the repairs but I'm not sure if they still do. Look for their email address on their site and email them and ask about time, it's worth a shot. If they still offer that upgrade option on the repair then you'll be totally fine for time. I hope that is helpful anyway, they are totally excellent for repairs on the Powershot cameras. All the best with it.

Dropped the camera, getting a lens error 115,0,0,212

Lens probably does not extend or retract because of a misaligned gear box. The lens can in about 50% of the cases be repaired without having to replace it. Try to return to manufacturer first. If you're out of warranty, there are third party place that fix them such as camera lens repairs. If you want to do it yourself, there are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the replacement part is usually available on ebay.

Check out this link:
After the basics, try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

If bought this at best buy and are still under your MFG warranty they can send it out to repair, or if you have their service plan, nothing you can do, this needs to be sent to a repair facility...
