If the lens assy is not responding to zoom buttons then the camera is in confusion mode due to a sensor being blocked or defective. Normally it would go thru a startup cycle to initialise position of various parts in the lens assy and give back control to you but in your case it is not getting that signal and in your case I would bet on the end sensor.

If you want to be able to use optical zoom try getting a more advanced camera because cameras like Nikon Coolpix 4300 does`nt have quality zoom its very poor and you can see it yourself the images gets blurry when maximize your zoom.
It seems as a problem with the zooming mechanism (lens would not retract or extended)
Press the power button on and hold it down while extending and twisting the telescopic zoom lens. It might fix your problem.
In any case it could not make it worse
Based on your description, it certainly sounds like the zoom button is stuck or shorted. If you're comfortable with taking it apart, I'd try getting to the zoom electronics and see if there's any noticeable damage.
Whenever I try something like this, I like to see how much damage I could cause first. eBay has sold this item for less than $50 with shipping (just in case you break something). You can also look there for parts cameras -- one listed for $10 with free shipping that might give you what you need.
