I had this issue and I read on the net to hold the lens down on a table of some sort and apply slight pressure while pressing the power button, it should go right back in, It did for me!

When system control does not get lens initialize signal while extending it, then it try again by folding it and extending and still no required initialize signal then generate error and stop further functions.
Please remove battery and open camera and remove flexible wire of lens mechanism from connector, there would be lock that needs to release to remove flexible wire. Clean wire terminals with alcohol, let it dry and put back flexible wire in connector and lock it. Now put battery and power camera up, hopefully lens will work properly.

Lens is probably just stuck, because of debris or misaligned gears. The
lens can in about 50% of times be repaired without having to replace it. Try to
return to manufacturer. If you're out of warranty, there are
third party place that fix them such as camera lens repair. There are also free camera repair guide websites that show you how to replace the lens, the part is usually available on ebay.
