This is a problem within the lens aperture, Sometimes these will jam due to dust, or dirt or if the cameras lens area has been bumped.
This is because there is a super tiny nylon gear on the motor that works the lens and focus system.
Its gears will fail and cause this issue.
Its not an expensive repair but its not a do it yourself project unless you are very mechanically inclined and have all the tools you would need for this. If you feel up to the challenge, I will help you all the way with this repair.
Just please let me know on that?
The best thing to do, is take this one to Best Buy or Sears for repair. They are honest, fair prices and they do an excellent job with regards ***** ***** work, I know I used to work for both shops as a service technician.
I know your camera well;-)
There is a lot to take apart to get to this little gear.
I wish I had better news for you on this, I really do.
In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.
