Question about Canon Elph2 APS Point and Shoot Camera
My film cavity is apparently locked. No amount of pressure will open it. I replaced the film yesterday and it worked fine then--there's been no damage to the camera since theat time.
This same thing happened to my Elph-2 years ago on boat trip in France. The ship's captain offered to work on it and it came back with a lot of little dents in the lid but was open and didn't lock up again until last week. After tapping on it a bunch with a kitchen knife, I decided to pry it open. DO NOT PRY!! Theres a hook-shaped plastic catch in there that is just waiting to break when you pry. Now I'm looking to replace the lid to the film cavity or the entire camera. It will not stay closed. Due to his circumspection and the language barrier, I never got clear exactly what the ship's captain did that time to get it open, but he sure did tap heavily on that lid from all the little dents in it. Good luck!
