pls tap the bottom of camera and see if it works i mean tap hard it might come out or not it is stuck with dust and sand or something like that or the GEAR might be broken then i will suggest buy a new one dont waste time in replacements consider FUJIFILM.com they are good in cameras Pls rate me WELL !
The problem your having is that sand and/or dirt gets in the lens mechanism of the camera. When the little cog inside gets sand in it, it prevents it from moving. It is what causes 95 percent of all lens errors. The other 5 are when the retaining pins get misaligned and don't go back in the holes. Mis aligned pins happen alot of times when you drop it with the lens extended, so let's go with the easy one first.
Take an air compressor (or borrow a friends) and put the nozzle up to the space in between the lens and and the camera. Blow it out real good. It may take a couple of tries, but it should free it up.
Let me know if that helped, and feel free to rate my answer.
This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
I bought two of these on clearance and gave one to my in-laws. She suspected that one of her kids may have dropped the camera or pushed in the lens. I don't remember which lens error number had shown up, but I dis-assembled the camera to find out what the deal was. If I remember correctly, there is a way to manually turn the gears to put he lens back out. I left the lens out and turned it on and it worked perfectly. Fair warning though. It is VERY IMPORTANT not to touch the contacts for the flash EVEN WITH THE BATTERIES OUT!!! God did it hurt like hell... unfortunately it is fairly easy to do and I must have accidentally done it about 4-5 times while messing with it..
I'd say that up to 5 min ago, I was having the same problem. My camera (Kodak C330) had been giving me this Lens Error 14 for about a month and I hadn't been able to make it work. The first 2 times it did that, I turned it off and on again, but then it just would work anymore. I tried opening it but it wouldn't let me so I thought I was screwed.. until I found this forum where people seemed to think that banging on the bottom and pressing hard on the lens would fix the problem. I had nothing to lose so I tried and guess what: Now it's working fine again! I had taken it to the beach and I'm not sure if it's because I had gotten sand in it or water perhaps but in the user manual, it said that getting that error message after dropping it or getting it wet was voiding the warranty. So there. Hope that helps!
