Question about Samsung SL201 Digital Camera
If the camera's lens will not retract out, then eventually shuts down, here is what you try to do.
Hold the camera from your right hand with the lens facing down. Then tap the base of the camera to your left palm while turning the camara on; do this several times until the camera's lens retracts out.
This problem often occur when the camera was taken outdoor or in the beach. Sand or a tiny granule of dirt might got stuck in the base of the lens.

That is usually a lens error.
Try removing and replacing batteries to reset the camera. Ensure that batteries are fully charged.
If that does not clear the problem, then the lens error is usually caused by mechanical faults concerning lens assembly. This happens because there is dirt inside the lens (sand dust), or one part in the lens assembly is bad or went out of place.
Because of this he lens cannot extend or retract fully, the error is detected and lens error is returned.
Sometimes this can be fixed playing with the lens during extraction or retraction to help the lens asset getting back to normal.
If if does not extend tapping gently the back of the camera, and if it does not retract helping lens back in while turning camera respectively on and off. Remember that you can also damage the camera if you put too much strength. Try also blowing air in the lens mechanism joints.
More often the camera lens must be disassembled and re-assembled by a technician to fix the problem.
