Question about Sanyo Xacti VPC-T700 Digital Camera
In the middle of taking graduation photos the zoom froze. Unit not dropped, just adjusting the zoom to get the best picture.
Now only a quick "For Service...." message appears, then display goes to black. Battery replaced, charged. Is this indeed a disposable camera?
Very disappointed in Sanyo, 3 month warranty; 7 month ownership.
Appreciate any advise.
I took the camera apart, painstakingly removing all the screws. Within the zoom area were two small loose pieces, one appeared to be a lens, the other a thin metal cover. I placed the parts back into their place, and put all the screws back, except for the case. When I did a test to see if everything would work..... Eureka !!! No, sorry, Darn!
The camera appears to be at the same status, turns on long enough to see the "For Service...." message pop on the screen, then the camera powers off.
I will be taking the camera apart again, and will use a meter to check connections.
Will report back if there is further progress on this situation.
