Power/lens Problems I'm having some power/lens problems with my camera. When I turn on the power in either the picture or video mode, the green light will turn on for a split second then turn off. The lens does not come out at all. However, when I try to turn it on with the picture viewer or in the menu it works just fine. When I start with the picture viewer and then switch to the camera it turns off. Thus it seems that whenever I want to take a picture or a movie the camera doesn't work.

I was taking lots of scenery pictures this weekend and usually turn my camera on its side to get longer/narrower shots. Well, I decided to take a video and turned that on its side. When I dropped the pictures and video off on my computer it would let me rotate my pictures but not the video. Is there anyway to rotate a video so i don't have to lay on my side to watch it? Thanks.
