sand blew into my lumix tz70 camera & now auto focus extension does not wor?

when I try to start camera it makes a really loud buzzing noise trying to extend, but does not open even a fraction. tried tapping, blowing, paper round bezels but no luck. not enough expertise to open camera and delve inside. anything else I could try. the camera is 5 years old now, is it worth the cost of repair, I would only like to spend £60 max? THANKS

Good luck, I hope it helps
