Photo lense sticks open

\015 When I turn on my camera to photo option the lense will open but will remain stuck open and I'm unable to take a picture. I've replaced the battery buy the problem still exists. If I turn on the camera to look at the pictures I''ve taken, I can do that, only the photo lense sticks open and the only way to get it to close is to remove the battery, then put it back in and the lense then closes.\015

Photo lense sticks open

My lense is stuck open despite turning my camera off. On turning my camera on I am told ''turn camera on off then on'' but the lense does not retract. I am able to view all photos on the memory card as well as turn the camera on and off, however at each point when the lense should retract it stays fixed out. Can this be fixed?

I have the Canon Rebel XTi. I am getting a message the CF card has a problem. I am able to put card in computer and it opens the files that are on the card.

My Canon PowerShot S400 shows a blurred image on my screen, one that looks like streaks of light. As I pan the camera the streaks move, too. Sometimes, but not consistently, when I take a photo there are streaks on the resultant image, often greenish blue. Here's something else: When I turn the camera on, the lens opens with a series of small clicks, such as might happen if the lenses have been damaged in some way.
