SOURCE: I have a 5 yr. old Canon Power shot SI camera. It

Hi Mike, the bad news is that your camera is beyond any hope of economic repair.Your camera displays the absolute textbook symptoms of this fault.

It has suffered a ccd failure, these often occur on cameras which are five to six years old and replacement costs far more than the camera is worth (that's if you can get the spare part, and it's not a DIY job).

Your camera has the infamous Sony 5MP ccd fitted; huge numbers of these failed prematurely due to a manufacturing defect and there was a quiet recall program whereby affected cameras were repaired for free (but only if the customer complained), usually by Sony. Apart from a couple of Sony and Nikon models this process ended last September as by then almost all affected models had pased their design life expectancy. Failures after that are therefore no longer considered to be premature.

The problem which causes ccd's to fail is now well understood and manufacturing processes were improved by all manufacturers, but you still shouldn't expect ANY digital camera to last more than five years without failing for one reason or another. Even top of the line professional Nikon models only come with a measly two year warranty: I can buy a new car for that with a seven year warranty and the car has far more which can go wrong... Sadly, late model highly electronic AF 35mm film and all digital cameras just won't last as long as simpler models.

Sorry there's no prospect of a fix, but I hope that you found my reply to be of some use. If so, please rate my answer.

My DSLR slipped and landed on my feet. Now I can take pictures but i couldn't rotate my lens.What could be done?


The lens's zoom ring has been knocked out of alignment. This causes sticking at certain points along the zoom and focusing range, and may even influence whether the lens can auto-focus. In order to have this fixed, you should take it to a camera shop to have it repaired, or send it to the manufacturer. They should provide you a quote at which point you can decide if it is worth repairing or replacing.
For example, if it is a $100 lens new, and they want $100 to repair it, it makes more sense to simply buy a new one.
The other alternative is to simply treat your lens like a prime lens, that is one that has no zoom, and move the camera into the correct position for a shot instead of zooming.
Whatever you decide to do, thank you for choosing FixYa!

I know this is not the answer you want, but when you dropped the camera you damaged the lens tube (housing) and your camera will require professional repair.
