Default Canon A510 problem - lens stuck, turns on for 10s then shuts off.

Hi, I'm looking for advice on a Canon A510. I have had it for a couple
months and have used it about 7 times and it has worked fine.

The lens is stuck about 2 millimeters out, the lens protector shield
thingies are about half open. I try to turn it on and the blue canon screen
comes on for 10 seconds then it beeps 6 time quickly and shuts off.

I can't remember exactly what happened but I may have quickly put in my
windbreaker pocket while it was still on and just stood in there watching
something for a few minutes so there may have been a bit of pressure against
the lens but I don't think anything very significant. Or, I just put it
down while still on for a few minutes, I can't remember.

The manual says if the lens is stuck the battery cover or memory card slot
doors may be open but I've checked they are closed. I tried putting new
batteries in, checkrf they installed properly etc. but nothing helps.

I'd appreciate any suggestions
