Question about Canon PowerShot S200 / IXUS 178 Digital Camera
Can view pictures but record mode and lense mechanism will not initiate. Camera will not take pictures.
Sadly I would deem that this camera has been dropped and thus an expensive repair. Failure to being dropped ( most people deny this) try turning camera off and hitting the face of the camera like a slap into open palm several timjes. This will release any dirt or jamb that may have caused the lens to stick. if after 20 or so of these slaps then you have no oprion but to discard it or send it for expensive repair. repair lanbour is about 90 anj hour plus parts. add it up as 2 hrs =minimum and maybe parts to the cost of a new one with warranty
