Question about Cameras
It sounds like the lens drive (internal), which controls the focus by moving the lens in and out, as so with zoom function, has been damaged or is jammed. First try replacing the batteries with fresh matching ones. If that does not work the camera will most likely need to be taken to a repair shop as the cameras are usually pressed together and also have very small screws that require very small special tools. If the camera didn't cost to much you are better off replacing it. An, (in my opinion), unprofessional option to try is with new batteries in the camera is to try the zoom function and listen to the camera to see if you can hear the motor trying to work, with that said, while operating the zoom buttons slightly apply pressure to the face of the lens to see if it will move back in. I am not responsible for any further damage if you try this.
