Having problems with your Canon PowerShot G9 Digital Camera ?

Canon G9 dropped

\015 Not once but twice when the camera was on with the lens extended. The first time nothing happened to affect operation but the second time I got the lens error and the camera shut off with the lens partially extended. Through a series of start/shut off's and hearing clicking noises when the lens fully retracted/extended the camera seems to be working fine. It no longer makes the clicking noise and the lens functions properly. Here's my question...by being dropped is there some internal component inside the camera all out of wack now that affect the quality of the camera's operation and of the pictures it takes? Do I need to send it in for general service/alignment of some kind? Thanks a bunch.\015

My Canon ZR200 camera will not eject the tape. I never had this problem before. Camera has never been dropped but all of a sudden the message to eject tape showed up but it won't do it.
