Question about Canon PowerShot A520 Digital Camera
Canon knew the lens on the a500 series was bad when they hit the market, but knew their name would continue to sell these poorly designed cameras. There are two gears that have stripped in the lens assembly and believe me, the average shade tree mechanic is not going to replace them. You can try to find a parts camera with the lens still working, or probably best just to trash it and buy another camera. I guess nearly all the manufacturers are using these little plastic gears that look like they came out of a 29 cent taiwan toy. If they made them out of nylon, or brass, then the cameras would last way to long and kill their sales. Good Luck
