Pentax Optio 50 Digital Camera Lens Error

I have a Pentax Optio 50 Digitgal Camera and when I try to turn it on, it states lens error, makes a buzzing sound and shuts off.
Is there a way to fix this?

    When I press on to start the camera, it blinks green then I see "Lense Error" message and shurs off. I barely used this camera six months, what a waste!

Not really, it sounds like the lens has been bumped while it was extended. Unfortunately, the "buzz" you hear is the gears stripping one another. The only fix is to have the lens assembly replaced, which usually costs upwards of $200. I see this problem at least 3 times a week in my shop.

Lens error pentax e60

Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Lens extends after power, then buzzes, then goes back in and shuts off. It was working not too long ago. And I haven't dropped it. But I just tried to use it and it doesn't want to work. The battery seems...
