Turn on the camera, the lense move out, suddently shut off and back in. If I move the camera in different angle the lense come out again and stay few seconds then shut off and retract the lense again.Just wonder what is the problem? Is mechanically or electrical related? Thanks for all your help.

Observe the behaviour of the lense once turned on. Like normally it will just push the lens completely out and goes back a little. If this is not done then there is a problem with the gears hence you can turn on the camera and try to pull the lense gently out and when you turn off then press a little this will make the gears seat on the right place.
Always check the batteries first but if is it still giving the same fault, your camera is faulty. It should be taken to an authorized repair centre for a repair estimate. Very few digital cameras have any user-serviceable parts.

your description says will turn on..but it looks like you describe will NOT turn on.. a dead unit.. ok, i have same issue and lucky enough to have TWO of these, the second one with a very different problem. I will troubleshoot between the two and get one working, will post results back here.. preliminary web search suggests unit has a DC to DC onboard voltage converter and DOES incorporate a fuse or more.. hopefully only a fuse is blown.
This could be a main-board problem
The fact the lens operates indicated that mechanism is OK
So what to do- Check Nikon support - will it be repaired at reasonable cost or will you simply bin it- who knows
