Ooh, that's not so good. The auto-focus may be messed up, and it's in\015\012the camera if both lenses behave the same. If you're very lucky, it\015\012will just be the electrical contact points, which you can clean.\015\012
In a DUST FREE place, get set with a Q-tip and a little but of\015\012rubbing alcohol (or even lens cleaning fluid) and very slightly dampen\015\012the Q-tip. Place the camera on a flat surface, back down, and remove\015\012the lens. On the bottom of the opening in the camera body, you'll see 8\015\012or so shiny gold points. Gently clean them all with the Q-tip.\015\012
If this doesn't work, try each of these 1) resetting the camera\015\012(Menu > Clear Settings), 2) remove the backup battery and main\015\012battery for a few minutes, then replace them, 3) update the firmware\015\012for the camera which you can download from Canon here ( usa.canon.com/consumer/cont... ).\015\012
If those fail, a local camera shop might take pity on you, or else\015\012you'll probably need to send it back to Canon for repair. Sigh.
