I have a Nikon D40, which I recently dropped. :( Camera seemed okay, but then I noticed later that the 18-55 lens was being less than cooperative. It now is stuck on 55 adn will not zoom out. It still focuses (manually & automatically). My other lens, which was not on the camera at the time of the drop, works perfectly fine. Any suggestions on what could be wrong or how to fix it?

I have a Nikon D40X camera with two lenses - one is 18-55 and the other is 55-200. Unfortunately, when I was at a wedding rehearsal, my 55-200 lens dropped off the pew on to the ground. It was not on the camera at the time and it has not worked properly ever since. My camera works properly with the 18-55 lens. Is there anything that can be done to fix it? Essentially, the camera can still focus, in and out, but when I try and push the button down, to take a picture, it just continues to refocus

Taking pictures I have a pink Sanyo VPC-S770 7.1 megapixel camera. When I hit the picture button, everything goes black. The lens does not retract, but the LCD goes black, and the camera seems like it turns off. I have not dropped it or put it anywhere dangerous for the camera.
