Question about Canon PowerShot A590 IS Digital Camera
My son dropped the camera smack dab on the lens while it was on in camera mode. The lens was crooked and you could hear the gears turning when you tried to shut the camera on or off. Is this fixable by me or does it have to be sent off? I've had estimates from $50 to $150, at the $150 price I should probably buy a new cam. Any help from anyone? Thanks camera droppe Lens wont contract
You can buy a new A590 for under $110 these days, so the professional repair option may be out. Lens errors are fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension. Or the battery ran down with the lens extended ...
Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for less than 50% of the lens errors, but if the camera is out of warranty, they're worth a try:
