Hello and thank you for your question. I would look forward to assisting you with your issue today. Does the lens extend?

Okay. Does it stay extended until you turn the camera off?

If the camera hasn't been damaged in any way and the battery is okay, I would recommend you try blowing the lens barrel out with a can of compressed air. There my be some debris that is keeping it from cycling correctly. If that doesn't do it then there is little you can do yourself to repair it. I can recommend a service center, but it will probably cost more than a new camera would.
