The zoom lens goes in and out when I turn it on and it makes a grinding
noise then after it stops moving if I take a picture it comes out
really blurry. If I try to zoom in or out it just adjusts its self
again. Any help would be really appreciated.thanks.

Power is fine, your case sounds like a jam or an obstruction by a foreign object in the lens (lodged between the extension barrels of the lens. This is an extreme situation and you need professional help, unless you are good at fixing things yourself.
There are several reason why digital camera doesn't stay ON even when the batteries are fully charge or use brand new batteries. You can try to do the following steps to make sure that there is something wrong on the camera and not just batteries.
- Remove the batteries from the camera and the memory card - Make sure that your using a brand new batteries
- Clean the battery contacts with a clean dry cloth - verify that the batteries are inserted correctly - Set the camera in Auto then turn it on
[Listen if there is a grinding sound on the lens part of the camera.]
Most Digital Camera turn itself Off when the lens won't zoom. So, if your camera start up and lens moves before it turns off and you can switch it on a different mode and it works. You need to contact your camera manufacturer and have the camera sent for repair. It might be wiring issue on the lens part of the digital camera
I had this problem and managed to fix it. The camera was dropped on a stone floor and the zoom error was present every time it was turned on. A ring or other piece of the lens was bent or damaged, in my non professional opinion. A profesional repair is my advice. However you may try my fix at YOUR OWN RISK.
Switch camera on, when zoom extends, but before it closes down due to zoom error, gently but firmly push lens back in. Drop batteries for camera to reset itself. Repeat, if necessary.
My camera now operates fully and when the lens extends it now no longer makes the slight grinding noise.
There is no way either of you or a tech can fix this problem without taking the camera apart. Sounds to me like the worm or drive gear is stripped or displaced...probably a 10 cent part...unless you have the ability to do this type of work...its best left to the techs.
There is a risky thing to do...and that is...perhaps its just "jumped" the gear...so it grinds when it attempts to move either in or out....you may be able to manually turn the lens and "click" it back into place. Gently turn it all the way right...then all the way left.
I would want to look inside first before I do anything else...it may be an easy fix...taking it apart will be the not so easy thing.
You could try the Casio Tech Support team,
but if as you suspet it is a matter of dirt- there is nothing to be done except replace the camera- the cost os shippin and examining the camera etc. will come close to its replacement.
A stuck pixel on the LCD is quite common. I have one on my 2020z; lot of people here would tell you the same thing. Long as it's just one, I wouldn't bother trying to get new camera.
Far as the lens extension sound: It is a little loud, but a *grinding noise* doesn't sound normal. Go to a store and pick up another one, see if it makes the same sound. If not, you may have a bad camera.
