Dissassembly / Repair video of Canon Power Shot sx230hs


\015 My daughter dropped her Canon Power Shot SX230 HS.Impact is evident on the back corner where the menu button is located. The button position has been rotated slightly but is stuck so that depressing cannot be performed. The camera powers on as the lens barrel extends and the green light illuminates, but nothing is displayed on the screen, even during playback. There's signs of physical damage by a gap where the battery cover joins the back? body plate and the corner is bent/dented. I'm considering dissassembly or at least partial to straighten damaged area hoping that maybe binding is the problem or further inspection / part replacement can be accomplished. Any suggestions or video that's helpful?\015

I shot video of the clouds last week in the storms from May 22. The video is great, but the clouds move in like the focus is re-adjusting in the video. It is very hard to watch in playback mode. I now editing the video and have tried to slow the speed and speed up the video and it is just too hard to work with in the edit process. I hope the canon Power Shot S51S is not going bad for video. Thank you,Steve
