You may have a damaged lens mechanism. This happens most often due to some shocks received by the camera. This problem will require service assistance because a lens mechanism is a VERY delicate equipment that needs calibration and proper tools to work with. The single thing you may try is to press back the lents using 2 fingers, one at each side, aplying equal pressure. Don't force them too much however if you see they don't want to get back. Turn on, then off the camera and while it tries to do the same job, give it this ..help. You will hear a click sound when the lens come back in. This works for about 30% - 40% situations, but it depends on the type of damage the camera suffered.

(I'm not sure this is a 'Solution' or not, so please don't 'ding' me if you find this of no use)
I had a similar problem with a Fuji E550. The power button on the camera was pressed while it was INSIDE the carrying case and the lense jammed agaist the inside of the case. It would not move and the camera would not function until this was cleared.
DO THIS AT YOUR OWN RISK!
A camera 'expert' suggested that I twist the lense to it's fully extended position while the camera is turned off. I must say it did grind a bit while I did this and left me feeling a bit queezy.
But, once I turned the camera on the lense returned to it's normal 'start' position, closed once I powered off the camera, and has worked ever since.
If you aren't comfortable doing this (and I wouldn't blame you if that were the case) you'll need to take it into a camera shop for repair.

The problem you describe is frequently battery related. Make sure that you have the correct battery type installed, and that the batteries are fresh/fully charged. If the problem persists, you may have corrosion on the battery contacts inside that camera that is preventing full battery power from flowing into the camera. Remove the batteries and wipe the inside camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sand paper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and reinstall them in the camera. This cleaning solves the problem about 90% of the time, and I hope it works for you.

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.
