Answers :

The r codes just indicate that you have that many shots in the image buffer. It is not an error indication.  Depending on the mode, the camera either will or will not allow you to take the shot when the image is out of focus.  Make sure the lens is set to A for auto, and try to focus on something outside in good light with lots of detail.  It sounds just like you aren't actually getting a good focus lock.

All that I can get is a dark image. Please help! Btw, I don't fully understand professional photographical terms, so please explain them thoroughly. Thank you!

For Christmas this year, a friend gave me a Kodak EasyShare M753 7 mp 3x optical zoom. I have the use of only hand and I dropped the camera on my desk(about 1-2 feet). One side of the lens jammed and would not release and would not take pictures. I kept fooling with it and the black bars in the lens came out. I would think it needs a new lens. Could you tell me how I would go about getting it fixed and the approximate time and cost would this involve.
