I ordered the gears, but unfortunately, they didn't fit. Sorry, I should have posted an update. I'll see if I have any spare from the cameras that I've repaired. I do know that I have spares for a530/a540, but not sure about a550/a560 cameras.

If your blower uses the two wheels to drive which I think it does I would suggest that you have a shear pin on the right side that is broken. If that is the case you will have to pull the wheel off and replace the shear pin. You can tell if it's broken by lifting the right side and trying to turn the wheel by hand.If it turns easily its broken.
This is an idea only. You might want to check both wheels as I'm not sure as far as the steering is concerned.
if the re-wind button is not stuck in, then the tab on the advance shaft is broken off. this small piece of metal will jamb the gears eventually.
take or send your camera to a repair shop for a cost estimate before repair as there are no new parts available for this model .
Open the gear motor on the left hand side of the telelscopic assembly. Take the plate off held by 4 philips screws. Using a 10mm socket, remove the bolt holding the platic gear. Remove plastic gear and insert the reverse way. Over the years, one side of the gears get worn out.

Lens gears are probably broken off, or other problem with lens. Will need to replace lens, or may possibly be repaired. I've repaired a few lenses with gears broken off, by replacing broken off posts with similar size plastic pieces(drilled holes and super glued in place, being very careful). Still working months after repaired. Olympus repair shops can replace anything needed, but at a HIGH price; sometimes cheaper to replace camera than to have them work on it.
Hi…I have the 3-D Cruiser Software. I’ve actually just put the whole game (original box) up on ebay – username – babadee. I’ve gotten a bunch of emails from people needing just the cd so I’m making copies and offering them for $8.99 plus $3.00 shipping/handling. If you’re interested or know of anyone else, I can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org…thank you377428
Canon A550 and A560 have the same body and most of the internal parts, including lens assembly are the same. Canon won't sell individual parts within the lens assembly. There could be two possiblities. One is (unlikely) that the lens assembly components have been knocked off from their position. The other is that because of a knock, or dropping the camera, the gears in the gearbox of the lens assembly are broken. These gears are the same as the ones in A530/A540, and are available from ebay for $12.50 including shipping. Checkout my site for how to open up the camera and the lens assembly to replace these:
For A550 and A560, if you take it to the professional repair shop, it might not be cost effective, since it might cost around $90. Canon does not sell gears, so they might have to replace the entire lens assembly. The new camera is available these days for around $140.
