... Canon PowerShot A720 IS Digital Camera

I have a canon EF 70-300 f/4.5-5.6 DO IS USM lens that has a zoom lock switch. When in the unlocked position and I try to zoom the lens it sticks at around the 200mm mark and cannot seem to move it below that positon, I need to wiggle the barrel before the zoom seems to "let go" and the lens goes to other positions. This is quite a problem as the lens cannot be operated in all its positions. Also when trying to get it unstuck, it feels like I am applying too much force and could further damage

Hi, I have a Samsung PL100. When I turn it on the lens extends and then buzzes for about two seconds, the camera will then not focus (though it will zoom in and out). I have to admit that I have had the zoom unit apart to look for anything obvious, so it may need replacing. Is there any procedure I can use to seat the lenses in the correct position before switching on or can you advise on anywhere that sells these zoom units, as I cannot find any suppliers? Many thanks Steve O.
