The lens won't retract although it's switched on, it's stuck halfway out

The lens mechanism works on a ball bearing track system, it's likely that it's fallen off the track. It's incredibly hard to re-set it yourself but if the camera is out of warranty you might as well try. \015\012
\015\012Having a lens repaired costs in the range of $200-300 CAD, and with pricing now on camera's you can replace it for less than the repair.\015\012
\015\012To try and re-set the lens on the track just try pushing the lens with some force as you power down the device, sometimes you can get lucky and have it fall back onto the track as the camera grabs the rest of the lens still on the track. But as I advised, only try to do this if you're out of warranty and prepared to completely destroy the camera, as there is a chance it will happen.

Lens trouble My lens will not come out entirely on my camera, for when I push the button to turn it on, the lens tries to completaly come out but then quickly retracts back halfway and remains stuck about halfway open. The screen is black and the light flashes red everytime I turn on the camera, along with a noise of something stuck. I have tried using that little button that someone told me was the reset button, along with plugging it in, and charging it. None of this has helped me with fixing
