My G10 lens is sometimes finicky. At times the screen would show static and a purpleish hue (think of a television with the black and white lines). When I adjust the lens, either by pushing up or down slightly, or rotating, everything goes back to normal. However, I have to do this everytime. How can I get rid of this problem?
