Getting out your battery is ok. Don't expect the lens to retract, because the camera has no power. But after you reinsert the battery, the lens should retract, because the camera knows in what position the lens is. Be sure the battery is in good shape. If the battery is not fully charged or even worse, when it is defective, noting will happen. When you have a multi meter, you could check the voltage of the battery. It should read a little more (few tenths of a volt) when measured with a multi meter. if it is only slightly less then what is printed on the battery, you can assume the battery is defect. The camera will not work with a defective battery, so in that case you should replace the battery.
Your batteries are too low.
When you switch on the camera, the lense go in. Then lense comes out fully. Then, if the batteries are low, lense goes in and camera turns off.
But if the batteries are too low, camera turns off before the lense retracts or even before the lense comes out fully.
Check to make sure the batteries are inserted correctly. Clean the battery terminals with a dry cotton swab that has a fine and soft tip,
and then re-insert the batteries.If the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] is not securely closed,
the power of the camera may not turn on.Close the [Memory Card / Battery Cover] securely, and then turn
the power on. If your camera still does not work even after you have performed the above
procedures, your camera may be malfunctioning. Please have the camera serviced
in this case.
I had the same problem that the green light turned on then the red one, even though the camera batteries where new.
I found a solution for this problem, hope it works for all as it did for me.
The link shows the images of the steps you need to follow to fix this problem. This problem actually is from low batteries or low voltage in the camera, but its not because the batteries are dead, it is because the batteries don't have a good contact with the metal conductors in the camera.
In the images you can see that the camera has a plastic cover for the battery contacts, so the way to fix it is to remove that plastic cover with a small screwdriver, and pop in the new batteries.
With that it should fix the problem. Hope it works.
i had a similar problem...my lense woudnt go back in either, but it kept saying low battery and bleeping. I realised that my lense was stuck skwint, and that was what was causing the problem, once i straigtend up my lense it folded bak into the camera and worked fine wen i turned my camera on :D
