There are a number of posts about this problem on similar models. I dropped my FZ8 and first followed the advice of some of trying to push the lens or move it back and forth to try to get it working.
In my case, that didn't work, so I followed the instructables instructions and took it apart. The comments there are also very helpful, so pay attention to those.
So try to work the lens back into place, but don't push too hard or you might break the plastic cogs inside. I used pretty much force and didn't damage them, but it could happen.
In my case, even after taking the camera apart, it was pretty hard to get the lens unjammed, but I did get it working again. If you do take it apart, be careful and take your time.
Different solutions work because the actual problem can be a bit different--the cogs that move the lens might be damaged or misaligned, or the pins on the lens itself might be off-track or damaged.
