    I guess it is time to buy another, is it worth sending it out for repair?

Your digital camera is an electronic device, they will not tolerate moisture, it gets into the circuits and you are looking at what results. A damaged camera.

    Sadly, I have not been able to find any repair services for these cameras other than warranty. They keep updating their models at such a rapid rate, it is nearly impossible to maintain a parts and service system.

Focus error

After the basics, try dropping the camera on a carpeted area from about 2-3 feet. It worked for my Fuji A500 and 90% of the responders on the link. Everything on the web said it would cost ~$100 to fix. I was in the process of researching new cameras to buy and had nothing to lose by dropping it on the floor.
The error may be caused by debris in the zoom mechanism preventing it from working. Dropping the camera loosens the debris and voila!

If you are still under MFG warranty and bought it from Best Buy they will ship it to service most likely, If you have their service plan they will be able to ship it for service... this needs to be serviced by a professional repair place...
