Question about Kodak EasyShare C533 Digital Camera
Lens stuck, grinding or making noise is a common description I see in many people that describe their camera problems. While it is common the actual thing that causes can be due to several things, mostly use.(which means you are enjoying your camera!)
The dust and sand that can start accumulating in there can wreak havoc. There is a little plastic ring that stays there as the camera lens moves in and out, that little plastic is often the culprit to these problems. Some people suggest cycling the camera on and off, however that can further damage this problem for that ring might be loose and cause additional problems. For the technician with the right tools this is a straight forward fix.
On several cameras this repair costs are 1/3 of the actual cost of a new camera and is well worth fixing it for it works like new afterwards!

There are some things you can do to try and "free" the lens. If it's just dirt or sand or dust jamming the tiny gears that drive the lens in and out, you can sometimes blow it out with compressed air. Sometimes you can put the camera down on a towel, and press gently (while pushing the on/off switch), and sometimes the gears will catch. Here is a good blog of different things to try on cameras with a lens error or stuck lens. If you have bumped it and broken a gear, it's expensive to get it repaired, so get an estimate first, should you decide to do that. Here is the web blog:
Good luck, hope this helps!
