This is very common problem now days with cameras. The lens getting stuck and won't retract. The reasons for this are Dust, Misalignment of the camera lens, sudden shock to the camera or low battery.
Try to charge your camera battery to fullest and then try to turn off the camera and see if the lens retracts or not. If it does not, then do not pressurise it. Doing so will damage the mechanism further. If using charged battery or spare battery do not work then my advise will be to take it to your nearest authorized service station as it is a very delicate hardware issue. Trying to fix on your own will damage it further.
If you need further information on the same please do write to us, we will be pleased to answer your queries once again.
Have a nice day.

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 centre 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.
