The battery on my GR ran out while I was using it and left the lens out, when I charged the battery and popped it back in the lens refused to go back in and just makes a vering sound and then switches off again. Any ideas?

Could it be you mean the lens barrel comes out, but I can't use the camera? Or does the lens barrel directly go back to the "in" position. If so, check the battery, or even better charge the battery. Then check if the lens, on its way out, is not blocked by anything. Because the slightest obstruction, will cause the lens to retract. The camera does this to avoid extra damage to the barrel and or the mechanics behind it.
The problem is discussed here, but that didn't fix my problem: http://dp-master1.dpreview.com/forums/readflat.asp?forum=1013&thread=28522715&page=2
After I left the battery out of the camera for several months, the camera date backup battery seemed to have run out of charge, and then the problem fixed itself. Very strange, and not a perfect solution, but a solution, if you can figure out how to force the internal memory to reset.
Does there is something happened when you turn on the camera? If you can heard sound made by the len or the camera try to open but turn off in a second?
If so, there is something wrong with the lens, and this how to fix camera lens error will be helpful.
Else, if the camera are without any reaction you can check it the joint of the camera to battery is well.
there is dirt or sand in motorized lens turn camera on and pop battery out before lens goes back in. Use a lens cleaning cloth and wipe all the outside of the camera lens well I also use a can of air and blew the three rings of the lens.I had to do this two times but now the camera works great
This is a known problem, they wont easily admit it but we had 2 R6's and an R7 with the exact same issue. If you look on ricoh site they had a firmware patch for the R6 to try and fix this issue but it dis not work.
Lady at ricoh UK admitted there is a design fault with the Ricoh R6 and R7 and she sent me an R8 which has a whole new redesigned mechanism.
Dont let them sell you useless kit, get a replacement free of charge or complain.

All the R series Ricohs have a pretty complicated lens system employing 2 swing-out lenses which can get stuck pretty easily, or worse, broken. If you are very good at taking things to bits you might have a go at fixing it (I've done several that were not TOO bad) since picking up one on Ebay with a good lens unit is almost impossible.
