We're assuming you have a lens error, restart camera message on your G11. Other than to turn the power on, there is really no way to restart the camera. If you've tried turning it back on and the error did not clear, the camera would require service. If you need to have that one repaired, you can go through: All they deal with are the service for the Canon Powershot cameras and the work through them is superb. Through them for that error is $89 with parts / labor included, servicing for the camera included, and return shipping. That's where a lot of people go for help with the Canons. They do excellent work on these cameras and they are actually affordable for repairs. Good luck with it.

Hi, I've seen that issue before with the G11, it's due to faulty wiring on the circuit board and can only be fixed by a Canon authorized repair shop as fixing that issue is very involved.

G11 powershot 'Lens Error restart camera' mesage when I turn on the camera. Camera stuck with lens out.

Lens probably does not retract because of debris or 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.
