Re: replacement parts for canon powershot a520????

I have a "broken" A520 that needs a new LCD. I really don't want to spend another $90 to get it fixed so may be willing to sell it for parts. Let me know. I don't know about any guide for disassembly however.

My A520 was splashed by a wave and after a few days drying out when I switch on all I get is a white screen. The lens retract as normal but that is all I have. Any ideas?

When the water evaporated, salt was left behind. Also, if you switched it on before it completely dried out (could take a week or more) you could have shorted out the sensor and the electronics.

Describe hi, i have a canon powershot a520 that was left in someone's purse when she gave it back to me the lens is now sticking half way out and when i push the power button it blinks on for a split...

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.

Two different Canon A520 problems.

hey guys. there is no solution that you can do it for yourself. the best solution i can give for you is take it to service centre. here in india we get charged nearly 1800rupees for servicing the lens portions.

Seeking Canon Powershot A520 Battery Door.

You can probably pick up a "broken" A520 on Ebay for $20 or less and use the parts from it. There are always some listed, but there are a few bidders who are in business picking up these cameras and "fixing" them to sell again. Good luck.

Lens problem

If you've replaced the batteries with fresh ones, it probably has a broken zoom assembly. It'll have to be replaced by a repair shop.
