Zoom lens broken nikon coolpix L1

\015 Hi. I dropped my camera (Nikon Coolpix L1) just as it was turning on, and now the zoom lens is halfway open and when I try to turn it on/off it won't do anything. Is this something that can be fixed for a reasonable price or is there anything that I can try at home to fix it? Just wondering if I'll have to fork out the money for a new one! Thanks\015
