Apparently no physical damage but camera result shows internal damage of lens mechanism and lens assembly need to be replaced by local camera repair shop because camera will take apart for that and lens assembly can not be repaired, replacement is only option.
Let me know if there is additional question.

Camera turns on but will not take picture

If the lens comes out without showing an error code, and you have a live picture on the LCD, the problem is probably with the 2nd switch under the release button. It'll have to go to a repair shop.
