I have a Samsung L201. I dropped my camera today (lens down) on sand, and now the lens won't go back it. Every time i turn it on it sounds a distinct 4x buzz sound, followed by a pause and then 3 beep sounds, followed by another 4x buzz sounds. There is no sand noticeable anywhere in the mechanism and was picked up as soon as it was dropped. Can I do anything to reset it myself? Please help. Thank you :)

When I turn the camera on, it buzzes four or five times (a sound I have never heard it make before) then displays "Please turn the camera off and then on again". When I turn it off, it buzzes again two or three times, the screen goes blank, but the lens does not retract. The battery is charged, and the problem is the same whether in picture or display mode, whether plugged into the computer or not.
