Question about Canon PowerShot SD400 / IXUS 50 Digital Camera
My cannon sd400 fell from a chair while i was taking a photo of myself, it was working fine after but when i took another picture, i noticed the lcd was all black, then i tapped it a little while focusing on something then noticed an area i'm aiming the cam at, it seemed that the lens was misaligned or something is jamming or blocking the lens, i want to know if i can fix it myself before taking it to canon service for repair because they might charged me a great cost for it, thank you in advance!
Hi there, there is two possibilities. The first one is to check the lens barrier covers at the front of the lens are opening correctly. If the front cap is dented in any way it may prevent them from opening fully when switching the camera on. If this is the case, you may be able to manually assist the cover by gently pushing them open with something soft like a cotton tip. This wont fix the problem but may temporarily allow you to use the camera. The other possibility, is that the shutter assembly inside of the lens has been damaged. If you gently shake the camera you may be able to see something shifting across the image on the screen or even when looking through the front of the lens itself. If this is the case you would need to have a service centre replace the lens for you. The same applies for the front barrier however that repair would be much cheaper. Best of luck!
