Lens errors like this usually happen as a result of something damaging the lens in some way.
It could have been against something to prevent the lens from moving out.
It could have been dropped when the lens was out.
If the lens is impacted when the lens is out, damage can occur.
If there is a buzzing, grinding noise as the lens extends, then the probability of damage to the small plastic gears, internal guides or other internal lens parts is high.
What can be done is, as mentioned a few times in my posts, to hold the lens back or pull on it as the camera starts.
This may cause more damage, and may not help at all, but some cases may re-align the internal parts in the lens assembly. This may be worth a try, since the camera is useless unless the lens works right.
Hope I can give some help here on these.

When you turn the camera on the lens comes out and has parameters when extending to focus, if the lens does not open fully it sees a problem and then closes.
there are tiny plastic gears inside and may have chipped or a piece of sand got in causing the lens to jamb. "very fragile"
one solution is to ask a camera repair shop how much a lens mechanism would be to replace. (if cost is more than 1/2 of what you paid dont bother)
another solution is to have someone sell your camera on an auction site for parts, to make some money towards another camera purchase

Try jiggling the lens. Use compressed air to blow out any grit around the lens barrel. If that doesn't do it, you'll need to get the camera serviced or replaced.
