Typical lens error on this inexpensive camera. It was stuck in a half out position, the camera started up, but shut down again due to the bad lens.

Start splitting the case form the battery compartment side. you just need a plastic tool to get it started.
Once it opened slightly, use your fingers to pull the case apart. No excessive force is necessary.
Do not try to totally separate the back case. It is still connected by a ribbon cable, just fold it to the side.
With the four screws emoved, the connector for the LCD is easily accessed. Move the white clip in the opposite direction of the cable to open the connector.
Separate the LCD from the camera
All the cable connectors and screws for the logic board are now fully visible. The cables are all a press fit.
Remove the three ribbon cables. From left to right, the cables are for the flash capacitor, the lens, and the top control buttons.
Remove the screws that hold the logic board, as well as the two long ones that attached the front case.
The screws are different sizes, keep the separate. The two long ones will hold the front case to the camera, and only fit in the middle of the logic board.
With all the screws removed from the logic board, there is now still the connector from the lens. Simply spearate it by bending the cable in a downward direction
The logic board is still connected to the camera via the power cables. Do not try to remove the board, just fold it over. If the board needs to be replaced, the two wires would have to be desoldered.
