Hi,

There could be several reasons for the lens stuck out. Try the steps below and check if they can fix it.
However following the steps below may worse or cause more damage to your camera.

I\012 had this same issue, the lens was stuck out. I pushed the lens gently \012left, right, up, down and pushed the zoom button and eventually the zoom\012 worked and pulled the lens in and now it functions as normal. Good \012luck!

Step 2.

I'm a completely a-technical guy, but without anything to lose I opened it up (4 screws, 1 of 'em next to the batteries).

Inside,\012 I lifted the black hatch on the bottom left of the lens. (2 screws). \012There are 6 (white) cogs of different sizes underneath, which connect to\012 the main (black) cog which extends the lens. Under the white cogs is \012the motor for the lens, but unless you get absolutely no buzzing or \012anything when turning the camera on (which would mean your motor is \012toast) you don't need to go there.

I made a schematic drawing \012before taking out all the little cogs and sprockets and whatnots. I \012cleaned them one by one with a needle and put them back using tweezers. I\012 tested it by pushing the main (black) cog with the needle, clockwise, \012and pulling out the lens manually. It came all the way out, whereas \012before it didn't, so I closed it back up, and it was fixed!

If the above steps does not fix, follow the below steps.

\012Now\012 we're entering into the realm of potentially damaging your camera in \012conducting the fix. There is definitely some risk here, so take care \012when conducting the following two fixes.\012
Fix #6:\012 Repeatedly tap the padded/rubber usb cover on a hard surface with the \012intent of dislodging any particles that may be jamming the lens. Other \012variations include hitting a side of the camera against the palm of your\012 hand. A lot of people have reported success with this method. HOWEVER, \012there is also some obvious potential for damaging or dislodging internal\012 components with this method, such as unseating ribbon cables, or \012cracking LCD screens.

Fix #6a: This is a \012variation of Fix #6, and should be tried if the lens barrels appears \012straight (not crooked). In other words, try this if there's no obvious \012mechanical damage to the lens barrels that's causing the problem. With \012the lens pointed down, try "gently" tapping around the lens barrels with\012 a small item such as a pencil or a teaspoon. The idea is to try to \012dislodge any sand particles that may be jamming the lens barrel stuck. \012Simultaneously try turning the camera on and off as you're doing this.\012 \012 \012
Fix #7:\012 The most extreme of the fixes. You especially might consider this if \012the lens barrel appears obviously damaged, bent, or crooked such as from\012 a fall. Try forcing the lens. More people have reported success with \012this method than with any of the other methods (see the polls in the \012right column). HOWEVER, there's obviously some potential for damaging \012your camera by using this method. Variations include gently pulling, \012rotating, and/or twisting the lens barrel while hitting the power \012button. Attempt to straighten or align the barrel if it's crooked or \012twisted. Another variation includes looking for uneven gaps around the \012lens barrel, and then pushing on the side of the lens barrel that has \012the largest gap (note pushing the lens barrel all the way in is NOT \012recommended as it may become stuck there). While doing any of the above,\012 listen for a click that indicates that the lens barrel guide pins may \012have reseated in their guide slots. If you hear this click, immediately \012stop and try the camera. The following photo illustrates unseated guide \012pins that would cause a lens error.
