Lens Error My daughter and I just got back from a trip to St Croix. We stayed at a resort on the beach and also went snorkeling. The camera was exposed to sand and water. While snorkeling we had the camera in a zip-loc bag so I do not believe it got water in it but I know that while on the beach it may have gotten sand on it. Now the lens won't retract and we are getting a "lens error 12". Any suggestions? Thanks

I've switched the camara off and on again and have taken the battery out and replaced it again, but they are still there in exactly the same place. Is this normal for a digital camera? I've had a couple of cheapo's before but have never had this problem. So it seems a bit strange that I have these irritiating dots on a £200 camera. Shoul
