Got it!!! Yahoo!!!
Here is what I did...

I read all of these threads, and read about the hard reset, tried a couple times and it didn't work... So I said to myself what have I got to lose to try other ideas so I did... I did hard restart with holding zoom in, and zoom out, about 4 times and finally the lense went back in and started working again! I would not try forcing it in any way like some stated. Zooming in while powering and zooming out and also turning it off in between seemed to get it finally. Try it! You have nothing to lose.... (Oh and I took out the little battery and put it back in for the clock, that did nothing).

PS: I had no memory card in the camera (with its door closed) during the entire process.
