Canon s21s I bought my camera in March 2006 and have not had a problem until 2 weeks ago.

On my Fuji s2000hd I have a zoom error, the screen is black and I can't take pictures. The lens will not zoom out. I believe that my husband put the lens cap back on before the lens had gone all the way in when he turned it off but I am not positive that is the problem. The lens seem centered and there doesn't appear to be anything blocking it from coming out. Is there a way to fix this?
