My 2 year old son dropped the my husband's Canon G11 twice while it was open with the lens out. Now the lens won't retract or the shutter close. It gives me a 'lens error, restart camera' message and won't restart. I tried taking out the battery for a few minutes and replacing it and reopening the camera, but to no avail. I'm afraid of taking it to someone and having it opened as I know that the chances of damaging it that way are bigger. Please provide me with your soonest reply. Rania

Hi experts. My new Canon powershot SX20is has a squeaking noise as the autofocus operates. This is picked up by the microphone ond is very prominent on video playback. The same squeak can also be heard when camera is slowly rotated forward to back. As this squeak was present from new, I returned camera to seller who claimed there were skuff marks on the lens hood and therefore the lens had been stressed, so was not covered under warranty. Does their explanation seem reasonable ? Would be m

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!
