Dirt jammed in lens barrel area

\015 I slipped in some mud on a hill had camera on and it landed face into gritty mud as will as my self. camera was on so lens was out i tried to wipe most off very quickly but i had mud on me . problem came when camera went into auto shut off, lens retracted with some muddy grit. after that i turned on and cleaned up but could hear some scraping in side from the sand. after 3-4 retractions it's stuck out and when you turn on you can hear it keep trying to do something but its stuck and wont move in. camera is not operable now. can the otter shroud of the lens be removed to see if any sand could be removed. i've already tried to slide a this stiff card strip up there to dislodge sand particles. lens also has 3 small scratches.\015

Hello Dear,
\015\012Both of you are required to take your camera to a Canon Care Centre or an expert and get the camera cleaned thoroughly, once all the dirt is removed the camera will work fine but this is not possible at your place.

I have a Kodak EasyShare Z1485 IS, the lens barrel is stuck in the furthest extended position. It was left alone and not operated for several months, though I have replaced the battery. The camera turns on for about 3 seconds at a time, I tried to turn it on several times with the lens barrel inching forward each time. It stopped going forward and has become stuck in what appears to be the furthest-extended position.There does not appear to be any particulates obstructing the lens barrel as far

Lens Problem I have a C-8080 and I like it but I'm not sure if it is working 100%. The lens barrel is sloppy from side to side and clunks slightly when moving it quickly. It has been that way since it was new. It has some issues with auto focus as well. It has a hard time focusing on clouds and soft objects at infinity. I called Olympus when I bought the camera and mentioned the sloppy lens barrel and they told me that that is the way there made. It is slow to focus when going from close objects

The lens play is normal. The focus is not the fastest, which is a shame because the camera powers up instantly! There are techniques to minimize the focus lag if you choose to keep the camera (e.g. hyperfocal; pre-focus w/manual focus lock). Its a gr ... Olympus Camedia C-8080 Wide Zoom Digital Camera

The image that shows up on the camera when I review them, has black flashing areas. For example if the area I photographed had a lot of white - it shows up as a flashing black section. What is this?
