Default Canon PowerShot G3 lens gets stuck on start up, camera shuts down

Help on this problem, please. I have a Canon PowerShot G3 for 3 years.
Until now only problem was LCD black-out on twist, which is bearable.
But now (maybe due to sea water), the lens gets stuck (doesn't extend)
upon power-on, the servo sounds a noise, and then the camera shuts down.

It needs service. Maybe they can offer you an alternative instead of
repairing, ask them.

Solved it by myself: unscrewed the camera, let it dry for 3 days,
and then screwed it back again. Works OK now. Probably water
droplets entered the body and caused the problem.
