Okay so I have a Canon Powershot A480 and I have had it for almost a year now, about 11 months. I was using it one day this week and it fell, and the lens got a dent and the lens won't move at all! I can't even playback my pictures and movies anymore.The camera will barely turn on.
I don't have a receipt or warranty.
Is there anyway I could get this fixed or repaired or replaced?
I loved this camera so much =(.

If it is actually *dented* (as opposed to misaligned), your repair costs are going to be nearly what it costs to purchase a new camera.
Actually, I'm wrong... Since that camera apparently costs around $100, it will likely cost more to repair it than to buy a new one. Even if it is just misaligned, your best bets are likely "attempt to repair it yourself" and "buy a new one when self-repair attempts fail".
