Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.
I think that, unfortunately, yes, the Lumix camera is most probably to be considered simply 'broken', by the fall it suffered. It will need servicing for the lens error or lens control malfunction.
Sending it to Panasonic's service center... or having it repaired locally by a Panasonic authorized service shop, perhaps... would seem to be the thing to do for this problem, unless you would rather have it replaced instead.
