During a St. Patts party i droped my camera on the ground. Then it would not close or take pictures. I had a little to drink and thought that it would be a good thing to forcefully close it, and prob striped the gears inside. Now it will not do anything....does anyone have any advice to help me out? or am I out of luck. Thanks

droping is the greatest sin :( mic might got affected badly, try taking your camera to the authorised service center, just tell them your mic not working, and dont tell the that your dropped it :D they 'll fix it for free :)
The Problem with the Canon PowerShot A470 Digital Camera Is That, where do I start? I took my mum's camera(without her permission!).
And used it at school to take pictures during a Prefect Party I had.
Everything went well till the lens jammed(fully extended) I tried
switching it on and off, but I still got that error message. Click Here To Watch Full Answer
Your lens might have been damaged, or the mounting was deformed. The best thing to do is to send your camera to the nearest authorized repair service center. Much better if you still have your receipt and claim the warranty.
I had the same issue, droped camera then even if flash is opened the flash was no triggered. As Paul said I found the sensor for sensing the flash position, I made a few trials then I soldered one pin of the sensor to the sensor's case like in the picture attached. Now is working the flash all the time even if it is closed.... opening the flash is manually.... but still better than without flash at all..
Powershot A640 Could Not Be Powered On, Burnt Smell
My Powershot A640 died during a picture shot, lens remaining open. I thought it may be due to the dead batteries. But after putting new batteries and pushing the on/off button, the on/off indicator blinked once then shut off by itself. After a while, a strange smell came from camera batteries area, and I could feel warm there too. Immediately I took out all the batteries from camera.
When checking the posts here the other day, I tried one solution and got the lens back to close: first took out the memory card from camera, then put the new batteries in; push the on/off button with no memory card. I found the lens retracted a little before camera shut off by itself. I pushed on/off button three times to get the lens fully close. However, the burnt smell came out again. I immediately took out the batteries.
Did I get a short circuit inside? Is there any ways to fix it?
