Hi,
My name is ***** ***** I will help with your question.
Many Camera faults are caused by dust and grit getting into the lens workings and stopping it coming out or stopping sensors working out where the lens is.
Sometimes tapping the camera into your hand when turning the camera on or off can help with freeing stuck lenses.
If you have access to some air in a can or air compressor you could try gently blowing some air around the lens to see if that will help.
There is some good information here on camera repair.

If you need a camera repairer this company seems to repair most cameras.

I would also suggest a trying a small amount of switch cleaner or alcohol on the af/mf switch in case it is dirty contacts, I myself would use IPA on a cotton bud and just allow a drop of it onto the switch then I would operate the switch to see if that helps.
