Question about Cameras
You will probably find the answer in your user manual that came with the unit. Sounds like the display is turned off or the unit needs to be returned.

What is most likely going on is that something (i.e. sand) is obstructing the movement of the lens. You can try gently blowing compressed air into the sides of the lens to try and dislodge whatever is stopping the lens movement. You can also try putting the camera on a flat surface with the lens pointing up and hold the shutter button down, and then turn the camera on. If neither of these options works I would have it cleaned by an authorized service technician. I hope this helps!

i did some research on GE's web site and found no evidence at all that this model supports webcam function. Not alot of digital cameras do anymore-may be cheaper and easier to just buy a dedicated web cam and you also get the right software included

Be sure that your batteries are fully charged and in fact using name brand rechargeable batteries. If you are using Alkalaid, make sure they are fresh. Alks after a use that runs them down will come back after awhile for some more pictures. If you have fresh batteries and the camera turns itself off after turning it on, it probably has a problem in the power supply section or the switching section on/off on a circuit board.

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.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , 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).
Try gently 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.
Another 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.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
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 replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
Hope the advise is useful. please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.
