When I turn the camera on or off and the lens goes out and in it feels like it is binding up - like gears that are not aligned properly. I can see and feel that the lens is struggling to extend and retract. Sometimes the lens will not retract at all and I have to turn the camera off again. The problem appears to be getting worse. Any ideas?

My Olympus u 750's telescopic zoom is jammed in the extended position. The cause seems to be the last segment of the zoom, containing the lens, which is not properly aligned with the other retractable zoom segments. I don't remember knocking the camera - not sure how this happened. Is this a common problem that can be fixed by gently forcing the crooked segment back into it proper place? Or if it has to be sent for repair, is it worth the trouble and cost?

Twice recently, I ordered an OEM battery model LI-42B on-line, but both times, after fully charging the battery, the camera does not operate properly with the replacement battery. Once the camera would not turn on, the other time I was able to take only 2 pictures, then the camera would not retract the lens. Have other people had similar problems with OEM batteries? How can I be sure to get a battery that will work with the camera? My camera model is Olympus Stylus 7010 12 megapixel.
