Pinky Kasotia , this is usually caused by sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism, or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. It is also possible that the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension....okay there are plenty of causes. Check on here for a more concise solution. Good luck
