HI,the lens assy' will most likely be in need of replacement.However,you can try gently thumping camera onto the palm of your hand in order to free any obstructions which may be restricting lens movement.Also,compressed air directed into front of lens may free up lens mechanism.If neither works than I will suggest to contact mfg for a service facility in your area.

If you have any other questions please ask....Best to you,Joe
