I was taking pictures, but paused for a moment to find a better angle. I guess I got distracted for a few minutes. I went back to the camera to see that the screen was black. I thought it had turned itself off, but the lens was still out. I didn't pay much attention to it and went to turn it on. However it won't turn on and the lens is still out. I've put it on charge just now to see if that will help but I was wondering if this happened to anyone else, or just me?

The part that controls the aperture is stuck. Basically, when I look in the lens, the black part is still closed, and at first it stayed open too long. Now it is just stuck closed.
