Having problems with your Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera ?

Canon sureshot sd550

\015 I have a problem with my canon sd550. The lens does not come all the way out when I turn it on. Also the camera turns itself off with the lens partially extended in the picture taking mode. If I switch to the picture review mode the lens extens all the way out and back in smoothly. I think the camera jammed up when I waqs using the wide angle and inadvently pushed the shutter release (I don't know how I did that) the camera hasn't worked since.\015

Answers :

Hi

Your lens is definitely jammed, and needs to be repaired or replaced.

A couple solutions would be to either buy a defective camera online and\015\012make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing\015\012yourself, or secondly have it repaired by somebody.

Don't bother\015\012trying to send the camera to Canon if it is out or warranty (though you can call them and verify\015\012what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair\015\012for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.

I know of\015\012one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it.\015\012The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that\015\012big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller\015\012ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.

We\015\012have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This\015\012covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a\015\01245 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then\015\012please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please\015\012feel free to contact me.

Hope this helps,
