Okay I doubt this can be fixed. I accidentally slammed my camera (canon powershot SD1000 Digital Camera) in the car door. It was in my jacket pocket my jacket was tied around my waist and I was climbing into a 68 camaro convertible. There is a dent on the lens side near where you open the battery & memory card compartment. The camera will not turn on and the memory card won't be read in any drive I try it in. I had awesome pix of Mt. Rushmore. :-( Any thoughts?

Hi, I had a spare kodak c330 camera which was in perfect working condition. Since I am using a Nikon camera now, i thought of converting the kodak camera to an infra-red camera. so i opened it, and after a few unsuccesful attempts, I was finally able to open the lens assembly and take out the infra-red filter. however, when I was putting everything back in place(assembling), there was a big spark - one like short circuit - probably caused by the huge capacitor that is used for the flash circuit.


The capacitor has shorted the circuits i would not bother with it .....sorry ... Kodak EasyShare C330 Digital Camera
