Nikon 14 - 24mm, the focal length ring will not turn

Any simple fix or do I have to mail it in?

It doesn't sound like a problem with a simple fix. I suggest you contact Nikon service and see what they say.

Did you drop it even slightly or bump it? I once had a 17-55/2.8 DX lens that fell about 300 mm (12") into some snow and I broke and internal ring, it would work but very stiff around 25 mm, just my experience...........

Remember, it's not the CPU that's in your camera that makes great images, it's the one located about 4" behind the viewfinder that does.

I could have slightly bumped it.  i am afraid to find out what it will cost to repair!  Thanks.
