Having problems with your Canon PowerShot A620 Digital Camera ?

My son dropped the camara and the top was damaged. all the functions are working properly. Can it be fixed, or replaced?


Answers :

This is really a double-edged sword. Yes, you CAN fix it, but the cost will be significant in comparison to the cost of replacing the camera. Most point and shoot cameras are designed to have a useful lifetime of a couple of years at most, so if the camera is working correctly and the damage is strictly cosmedic, you may decide to hold off on the repair and put that money toward the purchase of your next digital camera.

I have a Nikon D40X camera with two lenses - one is 18-55 and the other is 55-200. Unfortunately, when I was at a wedding rehearsal, my 55-200 lens dropped off the pew on to the ground. It was not on the camera at the time and it has not worked properly ever since. My camera works properly with the 18-55 lens. Is there anything that can be done to fix it? Essentially, the camera can still focus, in and out, but when I try and push the button down, to take a picture, it just continues to refocus
