    There is somthing wrong with the mechanism of the lens itself.
    You will need to go to a authorized technician to replace this mechanism.

    Nothing else you can do by yourself.

    Good luck

    Not exactly a computer-related hardware problem, but you should check if something is preventing the lens from moving in or out.  Some cameras reposition the lens on power-up and if they are unable, they shut down.  Apart from that, you will need to have it serviced, as suggested above.
