M700 Lens jamming
Has anyone experienced problems with the Lens jamming on the PDR M700? I thought I read somewhere before buying this camera that someone had this problem. Does anyone know how to fix it?

Never heard of nor had the problem, jamming how?

Jamming problem in more detail
The lens begins to open slightly (around 2 mm of movement) and then it just stops. I can hear the motors still running but the lens does not go any further. On the screen it just says Lens Error. I've heard of some other Toshiba cameras doing similar malfunctions and wondered if it is a problem I'm going to continually have. When I take it to get repaired should I insist that they repair it in any special way? Very frustrating :!:

Let me guess, you turned on the camera with the lens cap on? Try pulling out the batteries, putting them back and powering up again.
