Broken Lense My VPC-E760 Sanyo camera is a little over 4 mo. old. It was dropped about the 2 mo. i had it. Then lense popped back ito place, but it makes a funny noise when turning on and off.

Zoom error I turned my F470 camera on and received a "zoom error" bar across the screen. The lense does not move outwards after I turn the power on, nor does the plastic sliding screen close when I turn the camera off. The lense is exposed whether or not the camera is on or off. The lense does not make any sounds when I turn the camera on, but I hear (what I think) are the gears when I turn the camera off. When the camera is on, the screen is working, but the image is blurry. I tried other poste

Lense error- can hear lense trying to open, but lense does not come out of the camera body. This is weird because the camera was not dropped/hit/damaged. I used the camera to take night images of a rising moon. It took pics fine, but about an hour later when I tried to turn the camera on to review the pics, I got the lense error as noted above. 4 days later, same problem. The manual doesn't have any troubleshooting for this problem. Any suggestions? Anyone.....? Thanks for your time!

I have a Canon PowerShot S5 IS, and a few months ago I started getting a lense error whenever I went into phototaking mode. Every once-in-a-while when I went into the "view pictures" mode, the lense would retract itself, but when I tried to take pictures again, the lense would go out and "lense error. restart camera" would appear on the screen. A few weeks ago I finally got my camera fixed at a shop. I got the camera back and used it for about a week, now the same problem is happening. I've

Error 99 This is the second day with the camera and i got a Error 99, i read up on some websites that said to take out battery for a few mins and that resets the error, well it worked. Before I reset it I did take off the lens and put it back on. Now the error seems to be gone. I took the camera out with me to work and it was quite cold in the car so i am hoping that it was the moisture/dew that caused this error. Anyone else have any input on this?

I turned it on and off a couple of times, but without success. The lens is extended and will not withdraw back into the camera. I have taken out the batteries and re-inserted them.
