Make sure the lens is straight, not cocked to one side and gently help the lens out when it tries to do it automatically. You cant hurt it any more. Sometimes a battery disconnect for 30 minutes resets the camera.

Canon A560 dropped.when the cam is on lens wont retract anymore


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 ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Lens barrel wont open


Can't fix it yourself. Contact Kodak or try a good camera repair shop, as they stand the best chance of getting the alignment back in place.
