I got my camera nearly 1 year, without any trouble. Today I took the cam with me to make some pictures. When I started the cam up, the lens stretched out as usual. Then I started to zoom in, and made some pictures. After this, I zoomed out but this failed. Then I wanted to shut down the cam, but the lens did not retract. Now, whenever I push the powerbutton, the LCd is lit, I hear in a fraction of a second the engine for the lens is working, but nothing happens really, and at the end, I hear a beep, and power is shut down. But,.. the lens still didn\'t retract.
Anyone an idea what\'s going on, and more important : how to get this cam working again (retracting the lens).
P.S. Maybe important to mention : I did not shook the cam, nor did it bounce to something. I just kept it all the time in my hands.
Thank you for your kind answer, but I got the cam fixed, while it was still under guarantee. They did a good repair, but switched a bit more worn out cover from a cam of someone else with mine. This made me a bit angry, but I kept in mind that the most important thing was that the cam did work again.

sorry to hear you are having this issue. well the problem is your lens. the internal shutters have locked up and are stuck shut the lens needs replacement. repair run any where from 75.00 and up in most cases.i repair these all of the time.let me know if i can help out any further.
i have the same exact problem with mine. it's two and a half years old as well. i also noticed that if you try taking pictures in any of the best shot modes the pictures come out looking like paintings.
If the photo shoot out show white , the obscure (quality
variation), and even horizontal line ( white lines), and so on over-exposure
cases, even if the use of anti-tremor, set to default values are invalid,
because the camera shutter fault.
