When I turn the camera on, the lens extends, makes a few noises like it is trying to retract the lens. The viewer shows nothing - like the lens cover is on. When I push the power button to shut it off, it makes the noises again and shuts off but does not retract the lens. The battery is fully charged.

Camera lens The lens itself is making a strange noise and it is having trouble adjusting itself when the camera turns on. When I attempt to turn the camera on all you are able to see is a black screen and there is also a buzzing noise which I assume is the lense trying to adjust itself. The lens is trying to push itself outwards but it is getting stuck. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with it but I assume that once Iam able to fix the lens I will be able to use the camera normally again.
