Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera
I am investigating how to fix a stuck lens on a Canon powershot sd400. It isn't my camera but I suspect sand damage since I have opened it up and it looks like sand is a likely suspect. The camera turns on to view past photos but once in "picture taking" mode, it freezes up since the lens is stuck in the extended position permanently it seems. Anyway- I used to work in camera repair and so I know some fundamentals- like grounding myself, making sure not to touch the capacitor (yee haw!), and getting the casing off without losing the screws (wow, screws have gotten smaller and smaller over the years!). Anyway- I got the casing off and I'm looking at this thing: what's the next step to getting in and looking at the gears that retract and extend the lens? It looks like I should take the front circuit board off- any guidance from here? If I am in need of a few gears, it there a place where I can procure parts? Thanks!
