Question about Canon PowerShot G6 Digital Camera
Good morning, yesterday I tried the 'bounce' test with this lovely camera, it failed miserably. The result of the drop is the zoom action has stopped. It looked fine when I first looked at it, turned it on fine, tried the zoom first it worked then it stopped. When I looked at the case the part of the body containing the lever etc was slightly adrift of the main body, stupidly I fiddled with the lever (now stiff) pushed the housing home, heard a snap and messed it up completely. I have opened the casing and can see that when the lever moves it connects with a plastic lug (now lying next to the camera).
Is it possible to buy this section anywhere?
Is there a working diagram anywhere I can use?
Is there any way I can cobble this back together myself?
I should add, I had to take a very deep breath before even taking the case apart, so anything practical has to be fairly easy for me to follow..
Many many thanks, regards, Elaine
Unfortunately, it will be beyond economic repair, and it is unlikely spares are available to other than authorised repair facilities.

Remove your batteries and look inside the battery compartment. Notice that there should be three small phillips screws at the bottom of the compartment. Tighten up all of these screws.

No, you would have to send the product to Canon for repairs, and it would most likely be cheaper to just buy a new camera. I hope this helps!

When you disconnected the camera from the computer, did you remember to use the "safely remove hardware" function? If not, you may need to reset the camera. If you can get into the camera menu, just scroll to find "reset" and follow the instructions. If you can't, try this. Remove the card and battery...press all the buttons...leave it alone for 20 minutes...insert the card and then the battery...turn it on.
