Question about Cameras
I was trying to shoot video while holding two beers on one hand and the camera overhead in the other. It slipped hit the floor. When I turned it off, it wouldn't retract completely and the lens doesn't move but a fraction of an inch.
Guess I'll take it to the repair place and see if they can repair it for less than the cost of a new one. It was such a cool camera too.
Save hours of searching online or wasting money on unnecessary repairs by talking to a 6YA Expert who can help you resolve this issue over the phone in a minute or two.
Best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
Here's a link to this great service

I had this problem too, my camera just randomly stopped working and shut off. When I tried to turn it on again it said the whole 'lens error' bit and then shut of. The lens looked a bit crocked so I just gently tried to straighten it out and ta-da! Good as new!

I have the same camera and had this problems today. My son solved the problem for me. He put his thumbs on each side of the lens and pressed inwards causing the lens to pop out. Since then, I have been able to close and open the lens repeatedly without any problem. Hope this works for you. Good Luck!

This happened to me too, fiddle with the lens as its obviously stuck. Don't be too rough but try to figure out if it is slightly bent.
You will only be able to this if the lens is sticking out a little, enough to get a grip.

using your fingers, pry it opened and then push it back in. then hit it on something on the side closet to the retracting lens. i owned one of these for 3 years. i had to do this several times before i replaced it.
