If he paid on his credit card it may be possible to claim a new one from the credit card company.

If the lens is stuck, I Just firmly,twisted, and pushed mine, it needed easing onto its track.

Defo av10 know it is probably terminal but since camera is brand new ie only taken 1 picture thought it might be worth a shot at or if someone had one for spares .

I dropped my Canon PS SX200IS a few years ago and the lens stayed out and would not retract kept getting lens error message on the LCD Screen.

A quick Internet search revealed a site with 3 options to fix it, the fixes range from mild to severe (total last resort) for me the first 2 failed so it all pinned on the last one which was basically start gently tapping the lens against a wall after several taps getting stronger each time, the lens retracted
I got another year out of it.

He's a link to a sites with some answers for Fuji Bent Len's Fixes

If the answers recommend the above USE AS A LAST RESORT
