sounds like the focus and (Optical Image Stabilization)drive motors are bound or broken, sadly this normaly means new camera, unless there are no marks on the case and they wouldn't think that it had been dropped or gotten wet, well ya know, they will normaly repair or replace it as long as it is due to manufacture defect.

The problem is that the lens has become stuck in the barrel. There are some DIY solutions you could try, but the probability is that you will have to get it fixed by a professional.
Use these at own risk as it may further damage the camera.
Firstly , try connecting your ac adapter or usb cable.
Try holding the shutter button while switching on the camera.
Look at the lens , and if some of the lens 'circles' is misaligned or not concentric then try wiggling it (while holding camera lens down).
Try gently pushing or pulling the lens when it extends but this is risky as it may cause the lens barrel to slip out of its guidance system.
Another way to do this is to place the camera lens down on a hard surface and then power it up. Be sure to use a soft cloth or something similar as to not scratch your lens or casing. Let the lens push the camera up and down a few times and sometimes the little resistance provided by the camera is enough to get things going again.
Try hitting your camera near the lens on the body with the soft tissue on the palm of your hand.
Other than that , I would take the camera to a repair center for a evaluation to see if it would cost more to repair than to replace the camera.
If it is still under warranty I would suggest you take it in before trying any of these steps and remove any off-brand batteries or accessories as some stores are really fussy about warranty repairs on camera's with non-brand accessories.
Hope the advise is useful. Please do not hesitate to let me know if you need any further assistance.

or broken. To fix this wrong will need disasemble the lens unit, focousing unit to do service; if needs, replace the damaged parts and assemble to run normally. Don't do this if your camera is under warranty.
Or, unless there are no marks on the case and they wouldn't think that it had been dropped or gotten wet, well you know, Panasonic will normaly repair or replace it as long as it is due to manufacture defect.
Hope this helps.

Here are some troubleshooting steps that you can try that may (or may not) correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try. Some of the later steps do involve some risk to the camera, so carefully weigh your options before deciding to conduct them:
