Someone please help. I have a Canon Ixus 50 camera
I've had it a couple of years and find the camera adequate at the minute for my photographic needs.
My problem is that lately when I switch it on to take photos it only works sporadically (flash word of the day). When it doesnt work the camera kind of just beeps and makes a terrible kind of grinding noise with an error code on the screen.
I can always switch it on to review the pictures I have already taken.
To make matters worse, i took my OH to Take That concert last night and tried to get camera working, long story short, got a bit heavy handed with it (the camera) and have managed to do some damage to the lens cover.
Does anyone know of somewhere I can get it repaired and if it will cost a lot. i.e is it cost effective to repair or buy a new one.
I took advantage of the amazon offer couple weeks back to get the S700 free but both cameras i got were sub standard.
Any help appreciated.
