I have a Canon Powershot S3 IS and I was looking at picture I had taken and the lens was retracted. I switched to the camera mode and the lens started to come out and hit my leg and stopped half way.

On my GE E1050TW digital camera, when i start it up, it has a list of options such as '640x480p NTSC 4:3' and '720x576p PAL 16:9'.

The screen on my camera says 'Memory Card Locked'. The solution is to take out the memory card and flick the switch on the side. But I can't take the memory card out- it appears to be stuck.

My panasonic DMC ZS3 camera purchased on 12/14/09 has started showing vertical multicolored stripes on the viewing screen in all modes.
