When the camera is on I can press any button and the camera goes off, then I can press any button and the camera goes on. It will take a picture but when it comes up on the screen if I push any button the camera goes off. I reset the camera with the AC Adapter and it didn't solve the problem. The zoom is always out when the camera is on or off. I can tranfer the pictures to my HP Instant Share on my computer.

On the screen on the back of the camera there is an icon that almost looks like a key with the letter C on it. I don't know what this means.

The lens won't come all the way out- it makes clicking noises like it wants to and kind of bounces it but doesn't come out the rest of the way. If I push the zoom button over and gently twist, it will come out all the way. Once I turn the camera off and back on it gets stuck again. (I don't know for sure the model #- I don't have it with me right now but I got it about 3 years ago.)

The button that contros the zoom and shutter snapped off my camera. It appears that the tips of the three tabs sheared off. The small spring that brings the zoom button back to center is still attached to the camera. If you set the button back in place, the zoom and shutter will still work, but the button comes right back off as you take your finger away. Can a new button be ordered and snapped on? If so, where would one order this part?

Toshiba PDR-M700 When I power up the camera, the lens will not come out and sometimes will come out all the way to maximum zoom.

Once in a while the camera will work but eventually the "Lens Error" message comes up. This was a good expensive camera when I bought it but taking it in for service would probably cost more than the price of a new camera today. Can you sugg

Every time I turn on the power button, the lens zoom out and a few seconds later the camera will turn off, and the lens will come back in.
