The only way to fix a lens error is to send into casio and have it fixed. Call them at 800-706-2534 option 2 and tell them you have a lens error. They will tell u how to go about sending it in for repair.

When you turn the camera on the lens comes out and has parameters when extending to focus, if the lens does not open fully it sees a problem and then closes.
there are tiny plastic gears inside and may have chipped or a piece of sand got in causing the lens to jamb. "very fragile"
one solution is to ask a camera repair shop how much a lens mechanism would be to replace. (if cost is more than 1/2 of what you paid dont bother)
another solution is to have someone sell your camera on an auction site for parts, to make some money towards another camera purchase

I will strongly advise you to have this camera sent for repair as it is new and still under warranty. This is a failure of the lens mechanism and cannot be easily resolved. There are a number of user procedures you could try as to the causes and potential solutions for a stuck lens or problem with the lens door/mechanism at this FixYa Tip.
However as you will see this issue is not something that is easily repaired by a consumer and that tip is designed for cameras that are out of warranty and is a means to hopefully avoid the only alternative of an expensive repair.
In your case the camera is new and under warranty. Have it returned immediately to the vendor for repair. You do not want to invalidate your warranty by trying anything that might make the manufacturer unhappy when you return it.
Thanks for using FixYa.
