A stuck shutter is another common failure mode for digital cameras. The symptoms of a stuck or "sticky" shutter are very similar to CCD image sensor failure. The camera may take black pictures (for shutter stuck closed), or the pictures may be very bright and overexposed, sometimes with lines, especially when taken outdoors (for shutter stuck open).
To confirm a stuck shutter, put the camera in any mode other than "Auto", and turn the flash OFF (you don't want to blind yourself for the next step). Next look down the lens and take a picture. You should see a tiny flicker in the center of the lens as the shutter opens and closes. If no movement is seen, then you likely have a stuck shutter. If so, please see this link for further info and a simple fix that may help. Recommend the fingertip flicking technique listed in the article/

You'll want to buy a higher write speed card (Class 6 or higher) to be able to reliably store the larger file sizes of your 12MP camera. Recommend searching on Amazon. By coincidence, I recently just purchased three of this Class 10 brand (Amazon seems to be having a sale on them at the moment with free shipping).

like rodel de guzman wrote, if you can't turn it on manually, then it has propably hardware failure. but try also in a dark room and also check battery is full.

Error E32 is mostly a lens error and it denotes that your lens barrel has some problem.
If your camera is still under warranty and has definitely not been subject to misuse then contact the Canon service department in your country to find out about a free repair.
Stuck lenses are probably the most common reason that compact digital cameras get thrown away, but there's a fair chance of recovering use of your camera again
The fault is commonly caused by dirt or grit blocking the mechanism, or due to it having suffered a recent fall. Another common cause is that the camera was in a pocket or bag and the power button accidentally activated and tried to open the lens against resistance. The mechanism may have simply become dislodged or there may be parts which have broken.
Now there isn't much to do here. I am listing a few techniques that might help, but do it at your own risk as it can help in some cases or make it worse in others.
1. Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
2. Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
Hope this helps to solve it.
