Question about Zoom Cameras
First remove batteries and place fresh new batteries, as a drained battery may cause the same. This will also reset the camera.
That is not the servo motor. When the motor is faulty the camera will go into error mode, not starting at all, and not displaying anything on screen.
What you have is likely a mechanical fault, with lens jammed either because of dirt/dust inside the lens, or because one of the parts inside the lens assembly is causing a mechanic problem, and lens do not extend.

Correct this is an electrical fault.
Can you actually see the camera zooming in and out while looking at the lcd screen or through the viewfinder? Does the zoom lever move aswell when it is doing this? The only other thing I can think of is that there is a problem with the servo motor that moves the lens inside the camera .
I just checked my Nikon Coolpix and it does have a little bar on the W / T bar. When you are zooming out it should stop when it reaches the end of the optical zoom range, then while continuing to hold the “T” button down, it will continue moving and the white bar turns yellow on the SQ, so accidental activating the digital zoom can be avoided
