I've seen a fantastic solution for mobile phones dropped in water and the same principal applies... put the camera in a zip lock bag with uncooked rice (lens cap on to prevent scratching. The rice draws out the moisture... it does take a while however, maybe a couple of weeks. Anyway, worth a shot if you're short on cash.
yes its worth fixing!!!! Take something and give the fan a spin if it starts then you know its your capacitor that run the fan motor if it does not start then it is your fan motor. It will be cheaper to fix this unit then it is to buy a new one!!!!
This seems to happen when something (water, sand, dust) gets trapped in the lens mechanism. The recommended methods include taping on the bottom of the camera,rapping it on a table, and pressing hard on the lens. If the lens moves when you turn the camera on, try keeping your hand on it so that it's forced back into the camera body. A can of compressed air squirted around the lens is also a possible fix... but be super careful with that stuff, a good hard blow of breath might be safer.
I'm not recommending that you do crazy stuff to your camera, but if you're careful you may be able to get it working again without having to get it serviced.
YES, BUT THAT IS A JOB THAT NEEDS TO BE DONE PROFESSIONALLY, DUE TO THE ALIGNMENT OF THE LENSES AND THE POWER DRIVE FEATURES. IF YOU GOOGLE CANON POWERSHOT A620 REPAIR SERVICE, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO GET A PRICE QUOTE BEFORE YOU SEND THE CAMERA IN FOR REPAIR. IS IT JUST THE COVER THAT NEEDS REPLACED OR THE LENS? THE COVER MIGHT JUST NEED TO BE CLEANED GOOD WITH AIR TO START WORKING AGAIN? WORTH A TRY. IF I CAN HELP MORE, REPLY TO:
