Jacobus, sounds like you have a stuck lens. The signs of that are when you turn the camera on, the lens extracts and then retracts again and the camera may turn off. You could try [http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html|these tricks] and if those don't work, you may have to replace the lens. [guide|10153|Here is] the guide for that. Hope this helps, good luck.
