    My camera turns on but the lense will not come out and the shutter stays open when off. When I try to take a picture the screen turns gray and beeps at me.

Iphone wallpaper got change from unauthorised person showing it doesnt do anything yet but it /did/ get loaded off the server :P (awesome, huh)


While there are some security exploits for unlocked/unrestricted phones, I have not heard of a standard locked iPhone being hacked or accessed remotely. I have seen however cases where a wallpaper or icon resets to a previous or apparently "random" (nothing is actually random, but at least unexplained) image following an application crash.

Often doing a hard reset on the phone fixes it.
  1. Press the home button (the big circle below the screen) and the sleep wake button (the button on top of the iPhone) simultaneously. Ads by Google
    '; for(i = 0; i '+ '' + google_ads[i].line1 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line2 + ' ' + google_ads[i].line3 + '
    ' + '' + google_ads[i].visible_url + ''; } s += ""; document.write(s); return; } google_ad_channel = '+7733764704+1640266093+9503394424+5009222491+3607312525+8962074949+8941458308+6876289738+7122150828' + xchannels + gchans; google_ad_client = "pub-9543332082073187"; google_ad_output = 'js'; google_ad_type = 'text'; google_feedback = 'on'; google_ad_region = "test"; google_ad_format = '250x250_as'; //-->
  2. Hold both buttons simultaneously for a few seconds, Ignore the "Slide to power off" and keep holding
  3. The iPhone should now shutdown automatically - (fade to black)
  4. Turn the iPhone back on by hitting the sleep/wake button.
  5. You should now see the Apple logo, your iPhone is restarting and thus booting up.
  6. You have completed a hard reset successfully.

Z610i Lets out beep but doesnt turn on


Sounds like the device is defective. I would have the battery tested before deciding to replace it.

Dropped my camera.


Hello there,
The E18 error is related to the LENS not able to retract fully. If it is still under warranty, I would advise you bring it to the nearest service center. This is to avoid further damages. Otherwise, you can try a few things below.
There are a couple of things you can do.
1. Turn it on and then off. Spray canned air around the lens.
If trick 1 will not work out, try this.
2. Make sure the battery is fully charged. Turn on the camera and then give it a couple of firm whacks on the side. Make sure nothing is blocking the lens and wait for it to fully retract.
Let me know how it goes.
