Strange noises I bought it last week and its makes strage "clicky" noises when on. I've exchanged it twice and all 3 have made the same noises. Is this normal? They don't sound like normal camera noises and the store where I bought it listened and agreed that each camera seems to be not working properly. The clicks keeps happening even after I've turned all the noise settings to silent. It the Kodak EasyShare M341 Orchid 12.2MP Digital Camera with 3x Optical Zoom. Thank you so much!

The lens won't come all the way out- it makes clicking noises like it wants to and kind of bounces it but doesn't come out the rest of the way. If I push the zoom button over and gently twist, it will come out all the way. Once I turn the camera off and back on it gets stuck again. (I don't know for sure the model #- I don't have it with me right now but I got it about 3 years ago.)
