How to repair a digital camera, GE BK X5 with a Lens Obstruction?

I just bought a brand new digital camera GE BK X5. I put the batteries in, turned it on and the zoom went to its maximum and didn't get back. A red light in the back side is blinking and a sound is coming from inside and finally, the camera is turning off automatically. It shows in the LCD: " Lens obstruction, Re-start the camera".

From past experience this usually is an internal problem. It can be a misalignment or simply dirt that causes the motor from moving the lens. I could not find any forums directly discussing this model. I would contact GE and let them know of the problem and see if they offer and solutions.
