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

The problem you have can some times be caused by a small piece of dust or grit getting into the mechanism. You try tapping the camera on the palm of your hand sometimes this will free the lens or if you purchase a can of air you could try blowing the dust out. Make sure the battery is fully charged if the battery is a little low it may not have enough power to drive the lens

I am afraid if nether work the camera will have to go away for repair.
