That control board is shot or perhaps the connection to the main board is at fault. Shame but repairing those cameras is very labor intensive and hard to work on. And the parts are not cheap either. I am crazy about my SX 50 but if anything like that happened to me I would just go to ebay and get another one inexpensively. Many repairs on cameras are simply not cost effective.

The fall was probably sufficient to damage some of the delicate componentry contained within the camera

Use your camera menu button to access various settings options. Use that to restore your camera to default settings/ factory settings. The default settings will me a good pre-configured basic setting in which your camera can perform well if you are not sure about the custom settings.

I hope this helps you

Are you sure the battery still has enough power (even after charging) to let the lens motor do its job?
Are you sure there is no mechanical problem, you can see on the outside? Did anyone stop the lens, while it was coming out? Did anyone drop the camera, while the lens was out?
There cam be a lot of reasons, why a lens won't retract. Could be some force was used, also could be something just went wrong inside the camera. Like a gear that broke inside, or the motor stopped working. A contact failed and perhaps lots of other things.
If you already took out the battery, and reinserted it, and nothing changed, The only thing you than can do is after getting the battery out, is recharge the battery and then put it in.
If you have a spare battery, or you know anyone who has the same battery, try that battery. If nothing indicates a mechanical failure, and nothing helps, just contact the Canon Service Centre closest to you. First ask what a possible repair will cost. hen decide if you would like it repaired or you want a new camera.
New camera's are much better and cheaper than cameras last year.

This sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager, and is a known defect for your particular model camera.. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free if you live in the US, Canada, and a select few other countries. If you live outside the US, contact Canon support for your country to see if they'll still honor the advisory (some still will, especially if you stress you knowledge that this is a known defect of the camera). They may also include free shipping both ways (free shipping varies with countries). This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please see this link for more info.

that is not a malfunction, if the "display" button is pressed, the LCD turns off, (black), but if the mode switch is rotated to movie or panorama, it comes back on but will go black again if switched into the other 2 modes. when in one of the 2 modes that show black, simply press "display" and the LCD will come back on.

FYI "GURU", the CCD malfunction manifests as a purple colored screen with various levels of distortion, not black
