Question about Cameras
Most likely you have a problem with the lens motor or the gear system if the lens only moves in and out. When something blocks or prevents the lens from fully extending, it will behave like this. Depending on the camera, it may or may not be worth the repair. Since it seems like the camera otherwise works, then I would probably get it repaired. I don't recommend repairing it yourself but if you want you can. There are a lot of small parts and tight spaces which will make it difficult to work on. Somethings a small bump on your hand will free up whatever is causing the problem, usually not but worth a try. Otherwise the camera must be taken apart. There are screws holding on the outer cover and it will come apart in multiple pieces and you should then be able to gain access to the lens gears and make sure that nothing is broken and hopefully be able to find what is making the lens act as it does. If you don't feel like you can handle taking apart, then don't. Taking it to a repair center would be in your best interest. Let me know if you have any further questions.
