Hi,
It is a pity you did not visit the Canon Website for the FREE WORLD WIDE Recall you could have benefitted like I did also if the product is out of warranty. I bought mine in 2003 in Berkshire (RG12) and got repaired by Canon for FREE in Italy.
Read the link below for the instructions.
Today is not wort repairing the camera and if Canon were not able to do it blaming the shop I would ask the shop to replace a camera at least for half the price it is worth a new substitute. In the UK you have great offers from Jessops.

This is a true pity. this problem can be fixed for all camera models.
try www.teleplancamerarepair.com
be honest as to the condition of the camera currently so they can give you a true assessment. trying to fix it yourself will most likely make matters worse, specially if this store already made a mess of things.
