Make sure your batteries are fully charged, and that both the battery and camera terminals are clean (use a qtip and at least 90% isopropyl alcohol).

The most likely cause of this is for lint, dirt, dust, or sand to be inside the lens assembly, jamming up a tiny gear, and not allowing the camera to extend the lens. You can spray some compressed air into the lens assembly to try and free it up. The following website details the things you can try to correct this problem:
If this doesn't help, you may have gear damage, and have to have it serviced. Get an estimate first, since the cost of repair can be higher than that of a new camera.
Good luck, and hope this helps.
