I charged the rechargeable batteries (that came with the camera) using another battery charger (rather than the charger that came with the camera) and hey presto! As soon as I closed the battery compartment door, the lens retracted into the camera and the camera started working perfectly fine! Had sat in the cupboard for over a year without being able to use it. Happy days!!!

The camera beeps three times and then shuts off without the lens going back in.

If the camera is older sometimes the battery brakes down after starting as the motor for the lens needs a lot of power as the starting of the lcd does. Had a similar problem with a different camera. I tried a friends battery and suddenly all worked fine.
