    When I try to turn my camera on, a flashing "H" appears in the display. I looked up the problem in an online manual, and in the troubleshooting section, I read that I should take the battery out, wait for the flashing to stop, and then put the battery back in and turn the camera on. This has not helped to solve the problem. The "H" continues to flash, and the shutter won't open. Are there any other solutions to this problem?? Anything that will solve the problem permanently?

I've purchased several of these cameras used as we liked our first on and it eventually failed with this same problem. I have had four of these now and they all end up with this same problem. Take the battery out then turn the selector to any new position and then off, put the battery back it and the lens should recline and camera turn off. One of the cameras would then work for a while after doing this but then hang up again. I think this is a very common problem based on my experience but no other confirmation than yours.

Zoom pictures lower than what see in viewfinder

That's's called parallax error because the view finder is not in the same plane as the lens. Why don't you use the LCD screen to compose your shots?

Canon Sure Shot 105 ZOOM ~TOTALLY LOST ~need any instructions I can get.

The flashing H means hat the camera has detected a hardware fault on starting up. It can also mean that the film has mis-loaded. Try removing the film & then the battery to reset it. Put the battery back & switch on. If it's still doing it then I'm afraid it's got the 'flashing "H" of Doom'. Although this is repairable, it's usually not economically viable.
