Camera was dropped. Totally black exposures. Everything seems to be intact. No rattling.

When the pictures on the memory card are black to, it is really defect. If only the screen is black, although you need it for the settings, you still could use it to shoot in automatic mode.
Won't be worth repairing it, because new ones are cheaper.

lens wont open even when camera is on

Your acuator motor is worn out or stuck. It will cost more than what the camera is worth to repair it. Better to purchase a newer model or upgrade. All cameras have a life span related to the number of exposures you have shoot. Good Luck

camera no longer does anything when the "zoom in" or "zoom out" feature is used. can't move the menu bar to the right, only to the left?!?!

Sad thing about point and shoot cameras they have a somewhat short life span and these types of issues are common.If you enjoy shooting I suggest a digital SLR camera.Factory service on a point and shoot can and probably will cost more than you spent on the camera when it was new.

Extremely long time writing to CF card

IIRC these cameras support a noise reduction feature through a custom function. The camera will take a second exposure with the shutter closed (i.e. against something pure black) to see which pixels in the camera are "hot", and then will use that information to remove that hot pixel noise from the original image. "hot" pixels depend on temperature and exposure length so the camera would need to do this on every shot.
