Having the same problem. G12 is nearly 3 yrs old, been one of my all fave cameras. A couple of times at power up the lens failed to open and shut down, tried a few times and all ok.

But now after taking a few shots I got the lens problem error, lens is now fully extended and camera gives lens fail error and shuts down. Recharged battery but no luck, its dead :(.

As an engineer I am tempted to dive inside. Feels like the lens motor has jammed, has never knowingly been bashed or damaged. Great camera but always weary of too many electrical bits, gimme me a manual zoom any day.
