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.

Well, this finally happened to my EX1 too. Lens stuck, no screen, flashing the green light for a while and shut off. Screen works just fine when connecting to the computer for USB/print selection... Ah well, got plenty of mileage out of this cam. Will probably leave it uncharged for some weeks in case its some internal capacitor keeping charge on a corrupted loading sequence, but I guess it's time to look for a new pocketable.
