There could be several reasons for the lens stuck out. Try the steps below and check if they can fix it.
However following the steps below may worse or cause more damage to your camera.
had this same issue, the lens was stuck out. I pushed the lens gently
left, right, up, down and pushed the zoom button and eventually the zoom
worked and pulled the lens in and now it functions as normal. Good
I'm a completely a-technical guy, but without anything to lose I opened it up (4 screws, 1 of 'em next to the batteries).
I lifted the black hatch on the bottom left of the lens. (2 screws).
There are 6 (white) cogs of different sizes underneath, which connect to
the main (black) cog which extends the lens. Under the white cogs is
the motor for the lens, but unless you get absolutely no buzzing or
anything when turning the camera on (which would mean your motor is
toast) you don't need to go there.
I made a schematic drawing
before taking out all the little cogs and sprockets and whatnots. I
cleaned them one by one with a needle and put them back using tweezers. I
tested it by pushing the main (black) cog with the needle, clockwise,
and pulling out the lens manually. It came all the way out, whereas
before it didn't, so I closed it back up, and it was fixed!
If the above steps does not fix, follow the below steps.
we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in
conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care
when conducting the following two fixes.
Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the
intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other
variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your
hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER,
there is also some obvious potential for damaging or dislodging internal
components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or
cracking LCD screens.
Fix #6a: This is a
variation of Fix #6, and should be tried if the lens barrels appears
straight (not crooked). In other words, try this if there's no obvious
mechanical damage to the lens barrels that's causing the problem. With
the lens pointed down, try "gently" tapping around the lens barrels with
a small item such as a pencil or a teaspoon. The idea is to try to
dislodge any sand particles that may be jamming the lens barrel stuck.
Simultaneously try turning the camera on and off as you're doing this.
The most extreme of the fixes. You especially might consider this if
the lens barrel appears obviously damaged, bent, or crooked such as from
a fall. Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with
this method than with any of the other methods (see the polls in the
right column). HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging
your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling,
rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power
button. Attempt to straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or
twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the
lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has
the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT
recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above,
listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may
have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately
stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide
pins that would cause a lens error.
