Question about FUJIFILM FinePix JZ300 Digital Camera
Camera fell from low height on dry sand after which lens lids stopped to open/close and AF went static - red !AF and blurry images. It is in focus when I extend focal distance to max(zoom in), but not for close objects. There are not much holes therefore I wonder how sand could enter inside. After vacuuming all external holes the lids started to work, but AF is still not working. How to fix it?

Beyond sand getting in, the lens may have been damaged from the impact if it fell on the lens while extended. It may need to be serviced by a technician.

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.

Unfortunately, many cameras that fall prey to lens error problems can only be corrected by professional repair. But, here are some last resort troubleshooting steps that you can try that may correct it. They only seem to work for less than 40% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty (or repair cost approaches that of the camera), they're worth that try.

You forgot to pull out after the lens was pushed in on the side. That mistake makes it very expensive to fix. If you buy the same parts camera with a bad lcd on ebay. You can have your good lcd replaced on the ebay parts camera. Replacing lcd is an easier job.
