I removed the left ( viewd fron the back) plastic side cover anf the front plasticcover: 2 screws on the side and 2 on the bottom for the left cover. 3 scews on the bottom, 1 screws on the left side,2 screws below the flash, screws on the rigth side. Be carefull not to tearoff the small electrical cables.
After removing the front cover I assemble it again...and it works. I think it was mechanical jam or something like that.
If you are carefull I think the risk worth the 124$ which is 1/3 of the camera cost.

If the camera has recently been dropped you may have lens damage that will require professional repair. If it has not been dropped, your problem is likely due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced or the camera may require professional repair.

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to this can only be corrected by professional repair. But here are some things that you can do that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, or cost of repair is more than the value of the camera,, they're worth a try.
