The lens is stuck out because there is incorrect battery connection. there is an option on the camera setting for the battery type. try this one: -turn the camera on -click on Menu button -select options using left/right, up/down button -select Set up 2 -Select Battery type -Select Alkaline for non-rechargable or Ni-MH for rechargable -click OK button
this setting should be done when using camera for the first time and whenever you are switching battery types, from rechargable to non-rechargable and vice versa.

Perhaps you have bad batteries? Connect it to another power source such as an AC wall outlet and use your power adapter and see if this helps. If it does not or you have already tried this then your camera may need to be serviced.
Make sure you're holding down the lens release button, which is located on the front of the camera, while turning the lens. Sometimes a little bit of force is needed, I've found new lens' can stick a little bit. If it still won't come off, contact Canon.
The power button has two purposes explanable;
1. A firm press and hold would shut down the entire device, where would be common feature for the camera to perform a system check to include the lense functionalilty.
2. A gentle press and release of the same power button should capture a snap shot only after the camera has been powered on, by the similar process as pressing firmly the power button
Pressing firmly the power button would shut down camera completely after a system check if only the camera was on.
Pressing firmly the power button when the camera is off would turn on the device by performing a system check also.
The camera when powered on would have an indicator light of ready to capture snap shots.
The camera would autoshut down when left on for an extensive duration without capturing snaps.
The instance of such would generate a camera check once more before powering off completely
The lense adds to the cameras feature capabilities of acquiring images. a function of the lense is capture an impressive image where the mechanism of drawing closer to the object is made possible by a moveable lense. The Olympus FE-340 Digital camera is powered by a battery requiring sufficient energy for a snap shot. keep in mind that, the camera can perform without the lense. However, the device is designed to automatically responded whenever the lense is required.
1 a solution to the camera is with the source of energy in which instance batter power.
2.Dislogde the entire power area consisting of battery, check for improper installation; reinstall the battery in appropaitely noticing the installation indications of power supply. Cover the battery compartment properly, and charger afterwords.
1.Charge the battery for the entire duration known of a full charge.
2.Unplug thereafter when the full charge indicator is visible.
3.Try on the device for improvement in situation by taking photo snap shots
I had the same problem - and wondered if if might be that the battery didn't have enough 'grunt' to close the lense - so I am charging it via the actual charger (rather than through the computer) and sure enough, I turned it on and then off, and the lense closed. The green light comes on when I plug the camera into the computer to download photos, and I thought this was therefore charging the battery, but maybe it doesn't charge it properly. Anyway, my lense is now closed and the battery is still charging (light is still red). Good luck.
i had the same problem with my samsung s800 camera (from new!!!) draining batteries quickly and then being left with the lense out, i took the camera back to where i got it from (argos) and after being asked if i was sure i was putting charged batteries in they sent it away for repair and it turned out that the lense mechanism was broken, i think they charged me £10 to get it fixed but i have had no problems since then.
I had this same problem, and all i did was pop out the SD card, and tried turning it on without it in there. It powered up just fine. I then replaced the SD card and all was well. Possibly a problem with teh SD card.
