3 beeps One day my camera was working fine. The next day, I tried to turn it on and the lens came out just a little and then it stopped and beeped three times.

Error-C1 I was on holiday in dusty hot conditions when my second hand camara became unusable. I turned the camara on to take a photo and the zoom lens and shutter became stuck. The screen went blue and 'error-C1' appeared on the screen. Every time I turned it on thereafter the same blue screen came up and it makes a strange mechanical noise when I turn it on. It also turns itself off after a few seconds but the zoom still doesn't shut. The battery symbol still appeared but it appeared to be out

Lens stuck I have had this problem twice with this camera, the first time I exchanged the camera for a new one. The second time the batteries went dead and the lens was out.

My camera fell on my floor when I was trying to film a video. Now it is stuck with the lens out, and when I try to turn it on it makes a weird noise, stops, makes it again, makes a new 'bloop' powering off noise, and that's it. I can click the little play button in the square to view my pictures and it will make noise and turn on and I can go through my settings but it will not let me switch to actual camera/video mode!

Camera lens The lens itself is making a strange noise and it is having trouble adjusting itself when the camera turns on. When I attempt to turn the camera on all you are able to see is a black screen and there is also a buzzing noise which I assume is the lense trying to adjust itself. The lens is trying to push itself outwards but it is getting stuck. I'm not exactly sure what is wrong with it but I assume that once Iam able to fix the lens I will be able to use the camera normally again.
