Lens Error. Will Shut Down Automatically. Restart Camera

My Canon Powershot G16 has started displaying that message on the LCD screen and the lens doesn't extend.  After I turn the camera on and off a couple of times, the lens extends and the camera works correctly.  Later, when I turn the camera on again, the lens doesn't extend and the message is displayed.

What is happening and how can I resolve this problem?
