MIne is doing the same thing. I'm pretty sure in my case it is because sand got stuck behind the lens and the lens can't retract properly.

Switch off and on again? Take battery out and replace. Thats the only 2 ways of 'restarting a camera that I know of. Does your model have a 'reset' function? You will have to check the manual for that. Or ask Canon support.

I Lost picture. Went to press mute button on remote and pressed last button instead. Now i can't get picture back.

If you hit the "last" button again, it should take you back to the channel you were on before you hit the button. when you lost the picture, was the screen blue? black? If you hit the "menu" button, does the menu come up?

Brand New laptop, won't start

Try taking the battery out before you turn it on. Have seen completely a dead dead battery keeping a laptop from starting up. Does the hard drive activity light flickering? If it is you can try holding down the Function button (FN) and there should be another button to hit to switch between LCD\CRT.

Battery problem

It probably lacked the power to retract the lens. I'd start with recharging the battery and see if that corrects the problem.
