Hello and Welcome. My name is ***** ***** I would like to assist you with this issue. Are you having and issue with the lens popping out?
I've experienced this before with many coolpix cameras. Sometimes the lens can get stuck if a little piece of sand is caught. Try this please: Put slight pressure on the lens then turn the camera on. You may feel the lens try to come loose and have to slightly maneuver it to come out all the way. Please let me know if that works.
Ok. Does it even make noise? New batteries installed?
Usually the USB is safe and won't cause damage when plugging into a computer. But sometimes people try to plug the USB into an HDMI port on a computer by mistake which can cause an electrical issue. Has the battery been charged?
If it does not make a noise or show any sign of life, that indicates a power problem. This could be a bad battery or an electrical issue with the camera.
