Hi,

Thank you for using Just Answer my name is Carl and I will help you with your question.

Many lens faults are caused by dust and grit getting into the lens workings and stopping it coming out or stopping sensors working out where the lens is.

Sometimes tapping the camera into your hand when turning the camera on or off can help with freeing stuck lenses.

If you have access to some air in a can or air compressor you could try gently blowing some air around the lens to see if that will help.

There is some good information here on camera repair.
