EX1 Lense stuck!?

Hi, guys!

Have had my EX1 now for almost 4 months and been very happy with the result so far!

There has been a few malfunctions though, camera didn't start up when pushing the On/Off, but when gently tapping the camera it starts again!
This has happened 2-3 times.

Also had the lense got stuck once before, but then I just removed the battery and put it in again and it retracted.

Yesterday my 8 GB memory card was at last full, so I copied all the pictures to my computer, and then formatted the camera and emptied the card.

Then it happened again when I tried to turn off the camera the lense doesn't want to retract in again!?

When I try to turn on the camera the blue lightring shows, but the monitor stays all dark as well, and after a few seconds the green lights starts flicking and then the camera turns itself off!?
Tried to remove the battery and incert it again but won't help!
The lense is permanently stuck and the camera screen won't light up!
Battery is fully loaded as well.

Will try later to upgrade the files, but has a very slow Internet connection at the moment.
