Lens won't open completely
When I turn the camera on, the lens extends only partially and retracts completely three times, then displays the error message , "Please turn camera off and then on again". Trying that only repeats the error with the same result. I attempted to grab the lens and help it open, and it did, but rather than staying open the lens retracted again with the same error message.
Image playback, zoom, and menu all seem to operate normally, but cannot take a pic.
Is this a good question?
