Gents and ladies, open the body of the camera carefully, expose the front end. use can of compressed air around the lenses to hopefully blow out any dust particles. Hit every nook and cranny. attempt to turn camera on and off and on. If your lens won't retract or extend, but your power is on and "lens error" on screen, go deeper, remove several screws to remove the lens--be slow and gentle!! Might be good idea to just loosen the tiny screws first to gently giggle the lens while blowing air into the area. As you press the power button, you should be able to hear the little motors trying to extend or retract the lens. try to work the jam loose--gently.
I speak of experience--i had given my camera up and bought other ones to replace it but one day I decided to try to fix it. this is after my son had gone to the beach with it and it never worked again.
the lens would not come out and "lens error" was on the screen.
sometimes it would power on, other times it did not. But, after fiddling with it for awhile and taking the plunge unguided, the camera finally extended and retracted the lens and took a few pictures of my fingers!! Needless to say, there was quite a bit of sand inside the casing and moving gears. Now get after it and save your camera!
