Clicking sound My camera makes a clicking sound when I move it around...like it's a zoom issue. I took one back and got another one, but it has the same issue. The people at the store said it sounded like there was a screw loose inside the camera.

I purchased a Sanyo 12.1 mp camera with 3x optical zoom less than a month ago and for some reason it will not focus on anything. The screen shows everything as a big blur. I have checked the lense to see if there was a possible smudge on it but there isnt and none of the camera settings have been changed. It is also making sounds like it is trying to focus but cannot. Is there any way to possibly fix this?
