Only about 9 months after buying my camera, It wouldn't turn on. I'll plug it in and the light will come on that it's charging, but when I got to turn it on, it turns on for a split second (and the zoom lense comes out) and then it turns itself right back off (and the zoom lense goes in). I thought that it needed a new battery so I bought one and it's still doing the same thing. I emailed Kodak and they said that I should just send it into them for a $60 repair fee...lame. Any suggestions?

Unfortunately I dropped my lumix camera today. The outer rim of the zoom part is a tiny bit dented. When I turn the camera on, the zoom tries to come out, hunts a little and then goes back in.
