It sounds like the lens assembly has been bumped, and may be broken. There are many very small gears that can break teeth easily when the lens gets accidentally bumped in the extended position, or if it encounters resistance while extending. I will leave a link that explains things you can try to get it to work, but first lets get those pictures downloaded. Since the camera is "jammed up", you will have to take the SD card out of the camera, and use a card reader to connect it to your computer usb port. Then windows will detect the card, and you can transfer them to your computer. Some printers also have built in card readers, and you can transfer them through the printer to the computer. Here is a link to the things you can try to free up the lens. They say you can get the camera working in about 1/2 the cases, with the things they suggest to try. If nothing works out for you, you will have to either have the camera repaired, or replace it. Make sure you get an estimate before having it repaired, as it can be fairly costly, and some people just go ahead and buy a new camera at that point. Here is the link for the things you can do to try to free up the lens. Good luck! Don't feel alone, by the way, this happens a LOT.

Hi, the flash card card-eject lever spring is broken and wont eject the card. u have to manually push the card in place and pull the card out. the lever stays up until u shut the card slot door.once the card is in place the camera can read the card if images already exist. but...it will not record an image and shows up as blank on the screen after the shutter takes the image? is this the cause of the broken eject lever. thanks.

I have the same problemI think that the reason that the not record the image is that the card slot door is pushing down on the card eject lever and ejecting the card when the door is closedThe only answer I can think of is to shorten the leverdavidh ...
