Dropped my Canon SD 750, will turn on and lens will move, but the display screen is black & won't show anything- is it unfixable?

Is the screen cracked from the impact of being dropped? It may be worth it to have the LCD screen replaced or just checked in case the LCD ribbon came loose during impact. I would probably contact the guys in the link I posted above and have them check it out. This issue is most definitely fixable though!

Canon A540 powershot freezes with Zoom lense still out.

Probably the most common failure for all digital cameras, a lens error. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...

Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:

Canon PowerShot Dropped: Blank Screen

For Ravi, this definitely sounds like it might be a defective CCD imager. If so, Canon should fix this for you for free, including free shipping both ways. This is regardless of your camera's warranty status. Please check the following two links for more info:
Applicable cameras include:
A40, A60, A70, A75, A80, A85, A95, A300, A310, S1 IS, S60, S200, S230, S330, S400, S410, S500, SD100, SD110
By the way, don't tell Canon that you dropped the camera. Sounds like the CCD imager was about to go bad anyway, and the drop just accelerated this.
