Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera
My PowerShot A520 was knocked off my bookcase by one of my cats exactly a week ago, and the zoom is stuck midway. The batteries are fully charged, but when I turn the camera on it just goes to the "Canon" welcome screen for about 17 seconds and makes a little beeping noise, then turns off atomatically. The lens does not extend or retract. I am not able to view my saved pictures or take any new ones, the only visual my camera will give is the Canon welcome screen and then turns off. I'm hesitant to try to puch or pull the lens out, it barely budges and I'm afraid I'll make it worse. When I plug it into the computer, it isn't recognized and it does the exact same thing as it does when it's not connected. I don't know where the box is with the instructions, etc., all I have is the camera and USB cord, because technically this is my mom's camera but I'm the only one who uses it (or knows how to use it). Please, I need some assistance right away, I'm on my school's yearbook staff as head photographer and I need this camera fixed as cheaply and risk-free as possible, so any and all help is very much appreciated.
I bought a Kodak Easyshare digital camera and i havent had it for a year yet. i bought it from best buy in wilkes-barre Pa. I dropped my camera lens extended and the lens stays mid-way extended and will only show the welcome screen when turned on. then about 10 secs later it reads lens error. i was wondering iif the warranty will still work?

The same thing happened to me. It was my wife's camera so I bought her a new one and planned to send the damaged camera in for warranty repair. I took the batteries out and put it back in the box. About 5 months later, just as I was planning to ship it to Canon, I thought I would put batteries back in it and see what happened. It started working and has worked since. Ron
