    My 2 week old Canon A95 was dropped tonight. It landed on the top right, on the zoom knob. It makes it hard to turn the knob to zoom in and out and the shutter button is semi stuck to where it is very hard to press to take the picture. The only warranty it has is the manufacturers, which will not repair it if it was dropped. Any suggestions??

    Does it have damage from being dropped like scuffs or cracks or anything ?

    That sucks, I would take it apart! lol jk... no really, I would work on it if it were mine and it bothered me enough.

    My g/f's a60 was dropped and it fell on the lens while it was extended. It popped out of place sort of and wouldn't retract. It also wouldnt focus or do anything right really. Took shitty pics. But a little pushing, pulling, adjusting, bending and it works like a champ again.

    I'm sorta scared about trying to take it apart. I've been looking for repair manuals for it just so I can get the piece out.

    IF it looks almost new still, do a "buy and return" exchange. ;)

    thats the only option that looks golden to me right now. i was trying to figure a nicer, "legaller" way to do it though.

    Send it in on repair...I dropped my Fuji and the lens was extended + lcd stopped working. Lots of scuffs...and they sent me another with a new body (plastic casing) and fixed the lcd for free. :dunno:

    i recently dropped my a70, and now it just wont turn on...but there are no scuffs or scratches...and their website says 100-200 dollars for repairs, more if its from impact, water,or sand :-/
