I don't know why I keep bothering to answer this question, as people tend to rate my answer as if I was responsible for the design decision, but I'll go for it again...
The ES55 was designed as a camera, storing images (and videos) to a memory card. It was not designed to stream live video to another device. If you want a webcam, you'll have to buy a webcam.

I have a Pink Samsung ES55 and The first time I pressed the power button it turned on. However when i went to turn it on the second time by the power button it didnt work. I tried to charge it again and it didn't work by this time I thought I'd broken it or something but then i pressed the bottom play button in a square/box twice and it came on I was so seriously relived. :) hope I helped

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair centre for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
