The camera was dropped while holding it (30 inches). It appears ok, but when I turned it on, it made a rapid beeping sound and flashed code C:32:10. I turned it off. I tried to eject the tape but it wouldn't eject. No motor sounds. I removed the and re-connected the battery, and it made rumbling sounds from beneath where the tape is. That stopped, and nothing happened. When I turned it off and on again, I received code C:32:11. Repeating on/off, or battery removal causes the same responses noted above. I can't get the tape to eject and don't want to break it. Am hoping there is a user fix. Any suggestions are appreciated.

If it is actually booting into Vista, it sounds like maybe you have a stuck key. Turn the computer off and press every key a few times and see if any of them feel "stuck". Even if they don't, pressing them may have released any sticking they had. I would try that first.
Hold down the 8 key until 2nd beep sounds. Enter the User Program Security Code. If this code has never been changed enter the default of 1+2+3+4+5+6. When the correct code has been entered the 1st 3 LED's will flash and the sounder will beep rapidly. Press the B/A key and then enter the User Code to be changed (1,2,3, etc.). Enter up to 4 numbers for the new code. Press the B/A key twice to exit the Program Mode. Hope this helps.

OK, I have this camera and it started doing this to me about a week ago. I assumed it had reached the end of it's life after many, many excellent photos. As a last resort when the lens popped out after first switch on (when it's doing the clicking business) I grabbed the lens and wiggled it gently back and forth (as if zooming a conventional SLR). It appears to have been fixed, remarkably! I switched off and switched it back on and all seems OK. (I'm not holding my breath and will probably keep looking for a new one but for the moment it's sorted out.)
I HAVE SOLVED THIS! I Totally fixed my CAMERA! If you turn on your camera, the lens does not come out, and it just beeps then turns off, then listen to me. You need to unscrew the outer casing and take off the metal shell. Hold the camera in one hand, palming it, looking down at the LCD (ie the lens is pointing into your palm). This is to orient you. If
you look at the left SIDE of the camera, near the upper left corner of
the LCD, you can peek through some of the windows of the black plastic casing
and see 2 PLASTIC GEARS. The top one is white, the other is black. These are
the gears that actually move the lens in and out. All I did was give
the white gear a good jiggle with the tip of a pen and evidently it
made the teeth of the gears mesh together like its supposed to and ....
VOILA .... the lens came out when I powered it on and all is well! I
know this is gonna help someone!
