Then it has a Ricoh pin. Do a search for Ricoh pin on this site. There are many threads about stuck lenses and how to remove them.

We need more details to help you properly- what lens are you using? A photo would help, too

Been there-done that. If it's a Sears lens, it's stuck. Besides searching for Ricoh pin here, search for "stuck lens". It will come off, it just takes patience and the directions you will find here.

Bruce, you're screwed. (For awhile anyway, maybe longer).

This is a common problem, and hopefully, you'll spend more time on this site to make the most of your wonderful camera.
