Am in Italy and my Lumix DMC ZS6 camera was dropped on a stone floor. The LCD is was cracked but the lens tracted and retracted and it took pictures. Two weeks later however, whenI wanted to use the camera, it did not turn on and the lens did not open. Is this simply a matter of replacing the LCD or could it be a bigger problem with the electronics. Would it be better just to buy another camera? Thanks!

Canon Powershot A610 digital camera--LCD screen shows icons, but otherwise is blank--there is no visible movement in the lens when I take a picture without flash--have tried setting it on TV setting and taking a picture, then opening the battery cover for a few seconds after waiting 7 seconds or so, but no images on the LCD except the camera's icons--ideas? probably a stuck shutter, or is it still possibly the CCD sensor even though there's no visible movement in the lens? Ideas? Thanks!


Much more likely that it's a stuck shutter, especially for your model camera. How many tries did you give the fix? Some people stated that it took at least 15 repeated tries before the shutter opened:\015\012\015\012\015\012 ... Canon PowerShot A610 Digital Camera
