Question about Canon PowerShot SD550 / IXUS 750 Digital Camera
I dropped down my canon SD550. After that when we switch off, the lens doesn't go inside. We took a picture. But, the focus was not good. The picture looked out of focus. Have any solution?
THE BEST SOLUTION? DON'T EVER BUY CANON CAMERAS!!!! YOU CAN BUY ANY CAMERA BUT NOT A CANON!!! EVER!!!!

Every camera manufacturer will have problems with lenses, LCD screens, etc. A digital camera is a VERY complex device and you are taking that for granted if you are saying 'don't ever buy Canon...'. Just think about the technology you are holding in your hand and how little you paid for it... Pretty amazing if you ask me!
Canon has (I believe, but I could be wrong) the largest portion of the consumer digital camera market therefore they have more cameras out there so it would seem as though they have more problems. They really don't.
Anyway... regarding your lens:
If you dropped the camera and jammed the lens, you might be able to have it repaired by tearing it down and then rebuilding the lens. Sometimes it works if there is no internal damage and the person doing the work should have access to the lens calibration software.
Another solutions would be to buy a defective camera online and make one good camera from the two if you can do that sort of thing yourself.
Don't bother trying to send the camera to Canon if it is out or warranty or if you dropped it (though you can call them and verify what I'm about to say) because they will want $150+ to do the repair for you. Parts are not cheap to buy from them.
I know of one very affordable digital camera repair business... because I own it. The name is Darntoothysam, feel free to check us out, we are on that big auction website also (I don't plug their name for free), our seller ID is 'darntoothysam'. If you Google "darntoothysam" you will find us.
We have your repair listed as a package in our store for about $70. This covers a new lens, and return shipping of your camera! We even give a 45 day warranty on parts and labor. If you think you can use us then please check us out, even if you need to ask more questions then please feel free to contact me.
Hope this helps,
