Canon A85 Well there are a couple of things going on right now. Sometimes when I turn the camera on it will come on but the screen on the back stays dark and blank and it doesnt make the power on noise, other times it will come on correctly. Also when you do get it to come on correctly the screen is very hazy and has lines running through it.

I have the same problem with my Lumix DMC-TZ3 lens error states "Turn off camera and then turn back on" Though my lens tries to adjust then stops. The power stays on with the error message. Til I turn it off .The lens still does not retract. Now when I turn it back on the lens will do the same thing. I don't think its the lens. How would someone repair or replace firmware. Can it be done over the net?

When i turn on my camera the lens trys to come out but then it gets stuck and goes back in; the screen says "turn the power off and on again" but when i do the same thing keeps happening over and over. The camera has one big rechargable battery so i can't just replace it. I've tried doing the reset, and I've tried tapping around the lens ad hitting the sides or bottom of the camera but nothing has worked.
