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. Also, please be so kind to let me know if you found this helpful.

The lens is jam you can try to tap the below of the cam slightly but do not apply force or you can try to power off and on few times or take out the battery and charge it full and then try once if the problem persist please take it to any service center.

My screen size is in the 2X mode. I cannot get the screen size back to normal. Of course I lost the owner's manual. I have tried all the buttons on the remote w/o success.

the bottom half of the remote slides down ... that will reveil lots of lesser used controls including zoom .. you can also get to zoom via the menu system .. but its easier to just slide open the bottom cover on the remote and push zoom ..

I dropped my camera and the zoom lens will not go back inside of the camera. The camera still turns on and functions but it reads "Zoom Error"

Zomm lenses on compacts are so poorly made hardly any are repairable - thats why you see so many on ebay!! You may be able to get a new lens assy from the manufacturer but the price will be probably more than a newer camera!!

Fujifilm 2800 zoom

You need to go to a camera store and have them send it away for repair. Is she old enough to pay for it? It could be $100-$200 easily plus about $20 for shipping and a quote. No joke.
