Hmm, I had this issue as well. Twice in fact. The lense assembly would lock in a near-retracted state. Powering on gave a lense error and alot of clicking as the stepper motor tried to move the lense.

It's currently in this position. Last time, a rotational-outwards force was enough to pull in out of its stuck and into operation. I can't seem to do this again though.

I don't think the drive systems are dead - they seem quite healthy in fact. It looks like a simple mechanical jam. Anyone know if opening up the case will allow me to free up the assembly?

Unfortunately, I'm not eligable for the warranty (yeah I dropped it :/ ). Anyone else had any success with this brute force approach? If it turns out excessive force works, I'll get my wrench out. Camera is worthless as-is...

I take that back, brute force did work. Lense moves fine now.
