Hello. My name is Michael. I will be your Primary Care Technician and I can assist you with your question.

Have you tried removing and reinserting the batteries? If not, I would suggest doing that without the cable plugged in. Then plug back in if necessary. If the batteries have no charge, the lens will not retract until they do - so if you are gaging whether it is on by the lens, that's something else to consider.

When you remove from the computer, you should do an "eject" or "safely remove". Not disconnecting properly should not cause this problem, however. What it can cause is corruption of data, but not usually a malfunction of the camera.

Let me know if that helps and/or what happens after and we can go from there.
