The internal focus lens is not sliding smoothly inside the lens unit. Probably due to dirt or some foreign object clogging it's pins in the grooves it runs on.
There are various methods for freeing up the lens without taking it apart and cleaning it but all this will do is loosen the dirt and leave it in there to get stuck somewhere else and cause it to happen again (if you manage to free it in the first place).
These methods include;
1. Turning the camera on and off several times to see if it frees the lens.
2. Tapping the camera gentley in the palm of your hand whilst turning it on ( Works in a few cases but generally doesn't)
3. Blowing air from a can of compressed air like the cans you can buy to clean out your pc keyboard.
I personally wouldn't try this method as it can make things worse.
You may or may not find these 3 tips useful. Personally I'd take the camera apart and clean it out properly

Did you put in the battery the right way? If yes, try cleaning the contact points on the battery.

Many people ask if they can use their digital camera as a webcam. In
the early days of digital imaging, it made sense to dual-function a
camera because a webcam was a serious investment. However, webcams are
now so inexpensive that manufacturers are not considering this
functionality important in their digital cameras. In fact even the word
'webcam' creates the impression of bad imaging, so associating this
function with a camera actually makes the camera seem 'cheap'.
So, why do so many people ask if they can do this? I believe it's caused by the 'grandfathered camera' problem. Advances in camera design have been so stunning in the last few years that it makes no sense to use an old camera when you could use a new one and get better pictures. But what do you do with the old camera? This is where people start thinking "I wonder if I can use this as a webcam?".
So, can your camera be used as a webcam? Probably not, I've searched the web for your camera the Z10fd and I found no indication that it can be used as a webcam, in fact this fixya answer agrees; but here's how you can tell. Make sure you've installed all the software you can find for your camera, power it up, and plug it in. Windows will tell you if it has a webcam function. If it's a webcam, then it will appear in "My Computer" as a device, right along with all the disk drives. To be sure, go to your control panel and select "Scanners and Cameras". Is your camera listed? If not... it's not a webcam.
In the unlikely event that you have a 'video in' on your computer, and that your camera has a 'video out' then you can follow the instructions on the sony site ("how to use a digital still camera as a webcam"); but most people will not have that yellow 'video in' connection.
Your camera doesn't work as a webcam? No, I thought not. Here's a different suggestion for what to do with that old camera: keep it in a different place. Seriously, keep it in the car, at work, or at the cottage. One day, something interesting will happen there, and you'll be grateful of a camera with ANY resolution, even that old one!
