It's not jammed. When I turn the focusing ring a little, it quickly returns to its original position- by power.

I think you have the 14-42EZ and you are turning the zoom ring and not the focusing ring (which on that lens is really tiny).

The focusing ring can be turned endlessly in either direction, even when the camera is off. The zoom ring is sprung and is little more than a switch to activate the zoom motor.
