Fuji X10 dropped / no auto or manual focus

Hello,

today my dad dropped his Fuji X-10 from about 2 feet (60 cm) on a concrete floor. (The camera was in its leather camera case.) Now the camera doesn`t focus anymore and shows a red "AF!" message in the screen. Now there is also a stronger resistance on moving the lens ring to the "OFF" position.

Does anyone has an idea what has been damaged and what I can do now ?

Regards,
Thomas

Edit: It sounds as if there is something loose inside the camera.

Time for an X20. The AF conformation in the finder is worth the upgrade.

I vote to buy a used X10 (or X20 ? ). Fixing yours will, I believe, cost more than you should spend on it.
