Fuji F410: Switched on - lens part appeared- then jammed.
Camera has not been dropped, is well charged, has given excellent service. The lens cover opened, the lens assembly did part of the focus cycle then stuck. Turning the camera off leaves the lens part extended. Do I just throw it away?

lens retracts fully into the body and is protected by an automatic metal cover - no more lost or dangling lens caps. The F410 Zoom makes use of the new xD-Picture Card media that is smaller than a postage stamp. Fuji supplies a 16MB card and they are available now up to 256MB. The F410 is powered by a small proprietary lithium rechargeable battery. This battery pack performed well in our use and if the color LCD is used sparingly, I see no problem with the battery delivering enough power for a conservative day's use. As with any camera that uses a proprietary battery pack, it is always a good idea to purchase and carry a charged spare at all times. The included power supply / charger is an auto switch type and operates on 100-240V AC which is convenient when traveling. It charges the battery in 3 hours (or less) while in the camera and also functions as an AC power supply for extended use at home. The battery is also charged any time the camera is placed in the optional camera dock.
Have you tried removing the actual lens(?) to see if there's something inside the camera house that's not supposed to be there. I'd find it highly unlikely that the, thou who knows. The best thing to do, would be to drop it off at your local camera repair-store.
for your information the computer has nothing to do with the focus error!!!! the error appears as a message due to either of these reasons.
you have dropped down the cam.remember even a small drop may cause the lens to be damaged
you have forced the lens to close inside
the software inside the cam had been corrupted(not the one that came as an installation disk)
a more complicated problem could have happened to which can be found only after a physical examination of your device.so please take it to the nearest service center to get it repaired for free if its covered under warranty! please do not try to disassemble it unless you know how to do it well! thanks for contacting fixya!

The Dark LCD can mean the backlight has gone down- no repair option here.
A connector to the board has come adrift-
Are you sure there are no images being made - have tried?
As a try take the camera firmly in your paw and squeeze or flex the casing at the base of the screen area.-This is where the connectors are
You make get a re connection.
Also tell Fuji Tech Support about this
The lens on your camera has become stuck due to being dropped, contamination such as sand, or a malfunction within the lens. If gently manipulating the lens itself does not free it then you will need to get it professionally repaired or replace the camera.
