    Ive had the same problem with my coolpix 2200. I was taking photos and zoomed in for a close up shot and now when I try to zoom out again the camera doesnt respond, I have to completely shut the camera off so that it automatically pulls the lens in and then switch it back on, but as soon as I use the zoom function it just sticks again. Ive never dropped or banged it so I dont understand how or why its jamming like it does.

Based on your description, it certainly sounds like the zoom button is stuck or shorted. If you're comfortable with taking it apart, I'd try getting to the zoom electronics and see if there's any noticeable damage. Whenever I try something like this, I like to see how much damage I could cause first. eBay has sold this item for less than $50 with shipping (just in case you break something). You can also look there for parts cameras -- one listed for $10 with free shipping that might give you what you need.

Rotate the zoom control to "T". If you go too far, rotate it the other way. See pages 73 and 74 of the manual:

Nikon coolpix 2200 zoom mechanism

If the lens assy is not responding to zoom buttons then the camera is in confusion mode due to a sensor being blocked or defective. Normally it would go thru a startup cycle to initialise position of various parts in the lens assy and give back control to you but in your case it is not getting that signal and in your case I would bet on the end sensor.
