One Comment

My canon Pwershot A620 camera turns on but the lens won't activate. The message is that the mechanism has sand or something like that preventing it from opening.

This sounded like the camera was fine and just needs a cleaning which is impossible for a non-professional to do but the guy at the camera store says no one will repair it or it will cost more than a new camera. Really?
