SOURCE: zoom toggle switch problem
1: a small and strong phillips screwdriver.
2. a small piece of medium strength plastic.
(I used a wall anchor like you would use for drywall)
4: about 15 minutes
5. some gumption
6. a bit of sandpaper, in case you screw up step 4.
step 0: You are about to void any warranty. Accept this, and move on. Take out the battery and the memory card.
step 1: remove case of camera. be careful not to strip or loose your your screws.
step 2: gently give the thing a shake. likely a tiny piece of black plastic will fall out. this is the piece that originally attached to the back of the zoom rocker button. if it doesn't come out, don't worry.
step 3: take a look at the back side of the still functioning side of the rocker button. you will see a tiny nub on the back. this nub compresses the pressure switch that is built into the circuit card of the camera, activating the zoom.
step 4: cut a piece of plastic that is about the right thickness to replace the missing nub on the non-functioning side of the button. you will be better off cutting it a bit too thick than too thin.
step 5a: VERY carefully superglue the bit of plastic to the back of the button. you don't need that much glue.
Setp 5b: let me repeat, YOU DON"T NEED THAT MUCH GLUE!
Step 6: Let the glue dry. completely. I mean it.
step 7: replace the case, and about half the screws. put the battery and card back in.
step 8. power on, and test the zoom. It should work now. if it feels like the button is too loose, or still isn't making contact, you cut the plastic too small; Sand or snip it off and start again.
Step 9. If it feels like the button is too hard to push, the plastic bit is too large. You can cut it down a bit, sand it, or just put the rest of the screws in and be thankfull that you repaired your camera for about 2 cents worth of material, and 15 minutes of work.
Step 10: make sure you don't have any extra parts. make sure you didn't screw up another button while you were mucking about.
I've done this. It works. Repaired mine about 9 months ago, and no issues since...well, I put the button in upside down, but it works exactly the same, so that doesn't count as an issue.
If FUBAR your camera, I'm not responsible.
Long live Nikon,

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.
