Digital Camera Needs Repair

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 =(.

You can bring it into BB and they can send it out for an estimate, but keep in mind that any repairs will be at your expense.

Re: Digital Camera Needs Repair

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".
