Question about Cameras
I'll cover these separately:
First camera may be as simple as the cover blocking part of the image, or it could be that part of the sensor is damaged. Sensor is the part inside the camera that light hits and converts to voltage, you may hear it called the CCD or CMOS chip. You might be able to push the lens cover clear of the lens, but that may not be possible. Don't push too hard or it may break. The focus problem may be that the lens just can't move where it needs to focus the light. (The cover may stop it from moving.) It could also be that the lens or sensor has been moved so it's crooked and they don't line up anymore.
Second camera pretty clearly has a bad sensor. The LCD works and shows the menus and such, but it just doesn't get any information from the sensor.
If you're comfortable taking it apart, you might be able to take the sensor out of the first one and put it into the second, which would give you one good camera.
If not, it sounds like time to get a new one.
