Question about Canon PowerShot SD1000 Digital Camera
Yup. The title says it all. From the gritty noise when the lens would zoom, I'm pretty confident that there's sand in it - and the last time I turned the camera on, the lens got stuck in the open position and there it stays. Now it won't fully turn on (says there's a lens problem and to restart the camera - then shuts itself off). Do I dare take it apart and try to clean it myself? It's still in warranty - but I would imagine that that isn't covered... I'm against sending my camera somewhere for 6 weeks if it can be avoided. I love it and used it constantly before this little incident. suggestions? Thank you in advance!
Best advise i can give you is to get an air canister at your local walmart or whatever store. use the tube and get in the little cracks with it, try to move the lens in or out a LITTLE while you spray so it loosens the sand enough for the spray to move it out.
