I think your camera is well under the period of one year warranty as you must take the privilege to have it serviced for free or replaced.
I think there is some moisture condensation especially if you happen to visit the mountains or the sea side. Try to warm up the camera using a hair dryer. Now leave it one and repeat the warming to clear off any moisture from within. If this wont work tap the hood and see if there is any lens mechanisms that is out of control or alignment. If not I prefer you should find the warranty card and get it replaced.,

Canon powershot I cant get my memory card out.

Get a good pair of needle nose pliers - grab the card and pull. Yes it is a gamble but it always is. Just because it is damaged a little doesn't mean it won't work. I did the same thing - wiggled and pulled HARD - figured it was a total loss but it did pop out and I still use it. Once I lost one too but it is a chance you have to take.

Best of luck.

Try NOT connecting your camera to your computer.

The best way to download pictures from your camera to your computer involves removing the memory card from the camera and plugging it into a card reader (either built-in to the computer or connected via USB). This is likely to be faster than connecting the camera to the computer, and won't run down your camera's batteries.

Once the card is plugged in, it will appear to your computer as a removable drive. You can use the operating system's drag&drop facility to copy pictures from the card to the computer's hard drive, the same way you copy any other files. Or you can use any photo management program such as Picasa.

My sx30is is making a clicking noise when I zoom in/out

The clicking is from the stereo microphones picking up the sound from the zoom motor relays. I had the same problem

Won't turn on!

Hi, I have the same camera, and I left it out overnight- it got damp, and wouldn't turn on. I left it in a warm dry place for a week with all the battery and access covers open. Once it completely dried out, it worked fine. Hope this helps!
