\015\0121. Ensure batteries are fully charged.

\015\0123. Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck
\015\0124. Try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only.
\015\0125. Now turn on camera( with out card ) and see ,if working then fix the memory card & again turn on the camera. If working then fine .
Otherwise format the memory card and fix back in camera again & try. Make sure before format the memory card take a
back up all photos in your computer then format. If no luck then reset or restore the camera setting by pressing Menu key for 2 sec ..
in not done the press both Menu & self time key for 2 - 4 sec.
\015\012After all this if its not work then the lens guide pin is damaged & replacing the lens is the solution of your problem.
Before you trash the camera, try cleaning the battery and camera power contacts. Corrosion builds up on the contacts if a camera is unused for a time, and it's often not even visible. Remove the battery and wipe the battery and contacts firmly;y with a soft dry cloth. Heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a fine moire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper. Make sure that there's no residue from the cleaning inside the camera battery compartment, then reinstall the battery and give it a good charge. This may or may not work for you, but it only takes a few minutes (plus the charge), and the price is right.

This hint also works for cell phones, PDAs, laptops, and many other items that use rechargeable batteries. Always check it before you chuck it.
