My LUMIX camera's zoom lens won't go in

\015 My Panasonic LUMIX camera's zoom lens won't go back in; it remains out even when it's off. When I turn it back on, the zoom goes in for a moment, then goes out again. The zoom tab doesn't do anything, nor does anything happen when I press the button to take a picture. Help! I'm too poor to buy another camera and I need it for classes!\015
