This is a delicate operation but you can try this: tap the camera lens up on a towel over a hard surface (counter top or floor) while you expect the lens to retract as in turning off. It may be enough jarring force to get cams back in the helix that moved the lens. Hit it hard and flat. IF that doesnt work, try tapping the lens down while it tries to retract. I have heard that people get so frustrated with it that they slam the camera lens up on a desk and that fixes it!

At 5 yrs old, it probably isn't worth trying to repair. There are so many newer products on the market with improved functions. Missing important shots makes it worthwhile to find a unit that works.

CR2 files appear to be in the RAW format, so you will need software that can open them. Try Irfanview or Faststone (both free).

Take the camera to a specialist repairman! It sounds like the impact when you dropped it, (or when you straightened it), has damaged the internal parts and electronics.

Check your warranty to see if it is within the factory repair period. If not, you need to have a Photoshop pro. do the job. If you try, and you fail, all that is left are parts. Don't take that chance.

If the batteries are the same age as the camera, they are probably worn out. Try replacing them.
