My Canon XS - Lens malfunction & won't turn on

\015 My Canon XS has two problems. The standard 18-55 mm lens seems to have gotten stuck. It will only work within the 18-30 mm range, but nothing more than that. (It won't zoom past 30 or even automatically focus even when automatic mode) I purchased a 75-250 mm lens that works just fine. Now, the camera will not turn on as soon as I click it on "on." I have to take the battery out, and put it back in for it to finally turn on. I've tried two different fully charged batteries and have never dropped it or left in the cold or heat. I had a non digital Rebel for several years that never gave me problems so I didn't buy the warranty. Help!\015

Hello, I have a Canon powershot SX100 IS, and everytime i turn it on it beeps and says on the screen "lens error, restart camera". I have tried tapping it, shaking it a bit. turning on and off. Put in new batteries, taking memory card in and out. Turning it on at different angles. Connecting to the computer. But nothing is working, it wont even let me look at the photos when i press the play button, and that doesnt even require opening the lens! please help! thankyou.

I have a Canon zoom lens EF-5 18-55mm for my Canon EOS 450D. I am having trouble with my AF. If I set it on AF it will not focus automatically, but if I manually turn the lens for a close up it will then take the picture. Then and only then will the AF for long distance shot come into operation! After taking that shot it reverts back to not focussing. What can I do, if anything, to rectify this malfunction?
