Take the battery out and turn selection switch to camera and then turn it off. Put the battery back in and its working again.
if that doesn't work try
Try smacking the side of the camera relatively hard with the palm of your hand. Eject the tape and reinsert. You may need to do this a couple of times.

Lens cover

Try giving the camera a fewsoft but forceful whacks by the lens cover area. Hard enough to possibly unjam the cover but not so hard as to cause more damage. Best to use your middle finger and tap on it like you're typing really hard. Then try to cycle it open/closed a few times. If that doesn't work it's a mechanical problem which needs to be addressed by a repair shop.
