My kids accidentally dropped my Panazonic Lumix TZ-10 on the floor (not from a great height). The lens at that moment could only half close, but after turning power on and off a few times, now it opens and closes as normal. I can still view photos HOWEVER I cannot take new photos, the screen is black and the photos turn out black. I looked into the lens as it took the photo and there is no movement in there. The camera is still under warranty.

The warranty is unlikely to cover accidental damage but you could check if you have any insurance cover, perhaps in house contents or travel, or you might ask the retailer if he would help under 'goodwill'. It sounds as if the lens extension mechanis ... Panasonic Lumix DMC-TZ3 Digital Camera

When I turn the camera on, the lens cover opens and then closes. When I turn the camera off, the lens cover closes and then opens. So, how can I get the timing of the lens cover correct? Or can you tell me how I can keep the lens cover open all the time? (not the best solution but now I can't take a photo at all!)

Blurry photos I love my A80. I know it's best to use a tripod to avoid camera shake but I can't always use a tripod when taking photos of my active toddler. I like to do close ups of her face and her playing but pics of her are blurry and this is a disappointment. What setting do you recommend?

Automatic "Portrait" mode would work best for what you describe. It's the setting showing the profile of a woman on your mode dial. Try it both with and without flash (press the "lightning bolt" button on the back of your camera). ... Canon PowerShot A80 Digital Camera

Lens stuck Please help me, I tried to turn on my camera today (it had been working fine before) and when I tried to switch it on the lens would not fully it open and my camera was making a whirling noise. The screen is black and will not take photos. The lens won't open fully and when it does eventually close has difficulty doing so. The camera then makes a beep beep beep noise and displays "Please turn the power on and off again". Please help I can't live without my camera and can't afford
