Hi I have a PowerShot S50 (10 yrs old and still great). The lens door is not sliding back easily - make take a lot of juggling - and therefore the lens does not extend for picture taking. When I get the door open/lens extended, the camera is operational. It is difficult to close the lens door again to protect lens.
I see the PowerShot S50 is no longer officially supported by Canon for repairs. Any suggestions where I can send this for servicing. The camera has served me well until now. I'd hate to have to get another camera for what appears to be a small mechanical problem.
Thanks for any suggestions.
My PowerShot S50 did the same thing today, and after finding no direct solution online, I forced the sliding cover shut. The cover had been getting harder to operate for the past year, but amazingly, when I did this, there was a snap as the cover closed and now it works smooth again, just like new. (fingers crossed...)
