For whatever reason, the lens has failed. This can be caused by many things: the lens motor has failed or is stuck, the gears involved in driving the lens have jammed, or, as pointed out previously, the lens itself, a series of tubes which fit into one another has become stuck. You can try GENTLY pressing down on the lens when you first power the camera to see if you can free up the stuck lens. If that doesn't work, I'm afraid you are going to have to get the camera serviced.
The clicking sound you're hearing is the lens trying to move itself. Unfortunately, it's probably not going to be fixed by pushing on the lens. You are going to have to get the camera serviced. Sorry!

THAT MAY BE COINCIDENCE. I HAD MINE QUITTING WHILE I WAS GETTING INTO POSITION TO SHOOT A PICTURE. I DIDN'T BOTHER WITH REPAIR AND BOUGHT AN OLYMPUS VR-320. MUCH SIMPLER AND QUICKER TO SHOOT.

You can try CAREFULLY wiggling the lense about. If it works, fine. If it doesn't, you have to take the camera to a repair shop.

Remember to ask for a cost before you give the work order - it might be cheaper to buy a new one.

I have a polaroid i834 and the lens won't go in or out


Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
