You could try cleaning the battery contacts, and if that doesn't work you could try a new battery. If your camera still doesn't work I would have it looked at by an authorized service technician. You could bring it to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they should be able to send it to an authorized service center. I hope this helps!

When the lens will not retract and camera is not functional (no picture on
display, and does not shoot) , and you already tried replacing
batteries with a new fresh set (ensure please) , and then restarting
camera with no memory card inside, then camera is faulty.
Try an easy fix by pushing gently the lens (do not force them, just help them) while you turn off camera at same time. Try also switching the mode selector.
If still no luck , then the camera must be disassembled to fix the problem.
Possible reasons are :
If the camera is less than one year old will be replaced by manufacturer.
If your warranty is expired you can get an estimate for repair from manufacturer, or from a third party like Advance Camera here :Advance Camera Repair you can book the repair online.

the problem is that the lens is out of alignment. if its not making grinding sounds try manually help the lens to reseat itself. if that doesnt work its not ecomical to repair unit cuz parts and labor are about 120-130 dollars.

I had all the same problems with the camera that first started with a "memory card error" (the memory card was not the problem). I also only could get a "background" screen on the LCD. I was totally frustrated to the point that I figured I'd have to buy another camera. So, I figure it wouldn't hurt to manhandle the camera. I lightly tried to pushed the lens back in while pressing the power on-off button... The camera lens pushed and jerked (I didn't really fight the push). Thinking I did nothing... I then tried turning it on again....like magic, the camera turned on normally with screen showing ready to take the next picture. And no more "memory card error" either. I don't really know how this worked, or whether it'll work for anyone else, but it did for me.
