Slider Prob I've had my S30 for quite a while and lately i've had some problem with the slider opening up. Dont know if something got in between the slider and the cam or something.

It obviously is capable of opening and closing but seems to be reversed and makes a funny noise when it can't shut at the right time. Can I wiggle or giggle something? I bo

The part that controls the aperture is stuck. Basically, when I look in the lens, the black part is still closed, and at first it stayed open too long. Now it is just stuck closed.
