My fujifilm finepix S is saying "turn off the camera and turn on again".

Look carefully between the lens and the camera body for any sand, dirt or any damaged etc.Try turning the camera with the lens facing down and shake to dislodge anything stuck and try removing batteries and memory card, wait 5 minutes and refit the battery only and let me know the result...

I have tried those but no improvement. The zoom isnt working either. Is that more likely to be a grain of sand stuck then?

Yes, so please try compressed air. With a fine tip blow off gun and dry compressed air (20 lbs) set the tip between the lens turret and the camera body and turn on the air while moving the tip around the lens. It should remove all dust and sand. Turn the camera on and it should function fine and let me know the result...
