Re: Lens error, restart camera
Well, for one, there's no guarantee that this will work for all people with this problem, it just happened that I lucked out since I know there was no damage to my camera and it was only 3 weeks old. But I was sitting at my desk and decided to give it a shot with one of the tines on a fork.
All I did was pull the shutter over the lens apart with my fingers and place the tine of the fork in the bottom right corner between the rim of the shutter and the outer rim of the lens. Then, as I powered the camera on I just pulled until the lens extended - which did require some force, but not much (it's likely the camera could get more damaged by the amount of force necessary - so it's 50/50).
Of course it was stuck in the extended position for a moment, but I simply turned the camera off and back on again and now all is well. I've been using the camera just fine with no issue ever since. Hope this helps. Good luck.

Did you try replacing the batteries? If that's not the problem, then it might just be stuck. Look to see if the lens is a little crooked. If it is, try to gently
straighten it. If it still won't retract, try to gently push it in as
you turn the power on.
same thing just happened to me today. the little girl that I babysit dropped it about 1 foot to the rug on the ground, not a hard drop at all. so i tried taking out the batteries and hit it on the table (read on other sites) then i gently turned the end of the lens (my lens was stuck out) counter clock wise and it clicked and then worked.
I've had similar problems with various versions of this camera. Here's
the fix, if all else fails. These are step-by-step instructions to take
apart and fix the camera's lens error.

This is probably THE most common failure among digital cameras. There's a halfway chance of fixing it yourself, described here: http://camerarepair.blogspot.com/2007/12/fixing-lens-error-on-digital-camera.html
