Re: ex s500 - camera lens stuck in out position.
Sounds like you have a defective motherboard, because it wasn't dropped, it is not usually a lens issue. This is a camera repair place, they specialize on small cameras like casio exilims. I've had a Canon sd750 fixed with them for the exact same problem. The website is : camera repair nyc

Hi, The next thing to try would be to take the battery out and let it go for a few hours and then try to insert the battery again and turn it on... may work. But probably a ribbon cable has come off inside and that is why it is not working anymore.
Normally changing the battery solves this.Make sure you replace it with a good quality new battery and make sure it goes in the right way around as when you get in a flap it often ends up in the wrong way!
get a butter knife or any thin object like thatand use it to push out the lens and turning it on at the same time you will hear a clicking noise which is normal once completely out, use your hand with a gentle but firm presure move it form left to right and then hopefully it should work after that x
MY CAMERA IS HAVING TROUBLE TURNING ON. THE OTHER DAY I TOOK A PICTURE AND IT SHUT OFF IN THE MIDDLE OF IT WITH THE ZOOM LENS OUT. NOW WHEN I PRESS POWER IT SAYS RETRY POWER ON OR IT WONT DO ANYTHING AT ALL. THE BATTERY IS CHARGED ALSO BUT NOW I CANT USE IT AT ALL
We had the same problem with a Casio Exilim. Had been stuck for months...had nearly given up until I saw another post about banging the camera pretty forcefully to get the lens unstuck. I hit it once on the bottom onto my desk(w/ paper and blotter on the desk-so soft), then twice with the back of the camera against the desk. I turned it on and the lens was unstuck!! Immediately took a couple pictures and it seems to be working fine! If the camera may be lost, you've got nothing to lose to try this out...Good luck!
I have the same problem. Its actually because the On/Off button got pushed in somehow and its stuck. At this time right now, im not sure how to make it unstuck, but sometimes it will stay on. But when you push on, since its being held down, its stuck that way and immediately turns off because its still being held down constantly. Maybe try using a thing needle to try and push it out?
