Pictures have all become fuzzy even when I hold the camera still.

you got it in one my dear!
it could be fluff on the lens? or dirt on the lens, or even a smug, but wipe it very lightly to clean it off!!!!
or its the auto focus (ei: a part in the camera that gets the pitcher in sharp focus for you) has just droped dead on you, as its very unlikly you could turn this bit off!! there is only one other thing i can think of and thats down to how you are using it?? like stabing at the shutter button, pushing the camera to one side when taking a photo??? the only time i had that problem was when i was at a big party,,,
but it was down to me falling over every time i took a photo!!!!!!!!!!!! i was p*ss*d again?
next time il take more water with it?

Won't turn on...

rafael01014:When a digital camera is dropped, bad news.
It can damage the camera beyond repair. If the lens was open, more than likely the lens was damaged internally.

The other camera had some internal problems or the battery is low.
Make sure the battery is full charge.

For both of these cameras, since they are 5 mpxl , and are a few years old... sell it on a site like Ebay for parts or as is.

Dropped camera. lens open and crooked

Sorry to say you have broken the lens, replacement of the lens is the only practical repair and if you cant swap one yourself from a dead camera it would be beyond economical repair.
If you are adventurous you could buy a faulty one of ebay and swap the lens or if the faulty one has a broken screen or mode dial swap yours over to the faulty one..
there are a couple of "tricks" do getting this camera open drop me a line if you decide to proceed...

best of luck

Lens error

This error... lens error.. can be the result of many abuses. If the lens is held back as it is extending, it can damage the tiny parts. If the lens is bumped while it is extended, it may damage the internal parts beyond repair. Sometimes the lens get off track as a result of a blow while extended.
If the camera is dropped, the lens mechanism can be damaged from the impact, even though it is not extended.
If you treat a digital camera with a lot of care, and put in a padded camera bag, you may extend the life of the camera.

Droped my camera

Either you take it to a repair shop and ask them if they think they could rig you with an improvised button, or you contact canon and ask them how much would it be to have a new button fitted in. I would first try to find out if the camera has recieved any more damage when it was dropped. it might not be worth to spend money on fixing just the button. Good luck
