I'm having the exact same problem. I was in the middle of zooming on a shot and it froze, so I turned the camera off and on, and now I get the 5-chimes+Zoom Error screen. This is nuts, I've only had the thing for six months, and it was $250 (got the Stylus 730). I *think* I got a replacement plan so that's good. But still... I hope circuit city lets me get a different brand b/c I'm not happy with this now. The only problem I had before was the HORRID shutter delay. I want a model that doesn't have that problem .

SOURCE: Camera malfunction
I had a Nikon Coolpix L1 with a very similar fault- the lens would whirr in and out as if seeking then lock either in or out with a 'lens error' message.
Not sure you're going to like the solution: place a paperback book on a strong table, grasp your precious camera firmly in one hand and slam its flat base down as hard as you dare onto the book. Hold it hard to the book as it touches, don't hit and lift up again; more slam effect.
I tried this and it worked beautifully; for a few months. I had to do it once or twice a year.
I got the suggestion from a site similar to this with 10 or so astonished owners who had tried it and couldn't believe it had worked so well!
Aren't digital cameras ****, though? I may go back to 2nd hand 35mm SLR for something that actually works!
