Question about Cameras
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, they're worth a try.

Drain the system of all power
One solution that is simple and easy to forget is to empty the camera of ALL power.
Take out the battery and press the shutter and power buttons several times to drain the sytem of all stored energy.
I have had this problem several times and this solution works for me
(When the lense moves as is should and there seams to be a software issue)
