When i turn my camera the lens keep moving in and out, the orange light keep blinking and i cannot get any other thing to function.
I've just found out the cause to this problem. the tab that activates the power when you slide the cover of the lens is not stable enough and one slight movement causes it to switch back off... hence the moving of the lens in and out.
True about the battery, but you may send to repair center if the camera is less than one year
I have never heard of this problem. But - If the usuals won't help (new NiMH bats, cleaning corrosion from the bat contacts, trying with another good memory card, turning the camera on with the card out, checking for bent pins in the card compartment, reseting the thing either by a prescribed manner or by taking the batteries out for an hour), then it's time to get it fixed. Try finding someone that won't charge you an arm and a leg, or throw the camera away. As a last resort just let it rest for a few days with all batteries out (including a date memory one it exists). Good luck
