The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the
probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.

try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the
shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens ,
and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then
try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may
cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and
then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to
not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and
down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the
camera is enough to get things going again.

Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair
center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to

Mode is a behavior setting for the camera. The most common is "automatic" and this will rely on the camera to adjust settings like shudder speed and focus. But sometimes you need more control...
"Night" - will assume you need a very long shudder speed. while the camera will take pictures in lower amounts of light, you also have to work harder to keep the camera still. "Portrait" - This mode will adjust the automatic focus assuming that regardless of activity in the background that you want a picture of the object or individual directly in front of the camera "Video" - Takes low quality video instead of high quality still shots. "Landscape\Panoramic" - This setting is the opposite of portrait and assumes that the landscape is the main focus of the picture regardless of activity in front of the camera.
Other Modes: Cameras may have other modes that similarly allow for specialized photos. Some examples would be Black and white, color filters, light filtering, and overlays.

Pentax error codes are mostly for camera repair technician
diagnosis and most of the time mean the camera is broken and
needs professional servicing.
Some Pentax Error Codes:
E: "E" often indicates a film jam. This code can
appear when the film is inserted incorrectly, when the batteries
are changed in the middle of a roll of film, if you are using
defective film, etc. If "E" appears in your camera's
information display, try to rewind your film manually (see your
user's guide for instructions on how to activate your mid-roll
rewind function), and try a different roll. If this problem keeps
occurring, you might need to send the camera to us for repair.
E3, E7, E37: These codes often signal a problem with your
E9, E93-E97: These codes may indicate a problem with your zoom
H0-H9: These H codes can also identify a problem with your
U1-U9: These U codes may also indicate a problem with your
camera's zoom lens.
These codes are standard for both Digital and film cameras.
