My camera got sand in it,now the lens wont open and focus. So bummed now I gotta get a new one. I tried to clean and fix it but it just wont work.
I had the same thing happen to one of mine! I'm sorry you have to buy a new one, that's a pain.
Yea my daughter grabbed it and it fell in the sand then it wouldn't turn back on.
Ugh. It happens, but it so hurts the pocket book. I remember dropping one of ours on our kitchen floor in our townhouse - tile on concrete, it never worked again, obviously. What kind are you looking to buy? The same one or a different one? I heard of one that could connect to WiFi making downloading so much easier, that's the one I want to research and find out more about. A blogging friend mentioned it, now I just have to find it on her blog again!
I want something similar to what I had it worked great for me.
Aww, I'm sorry. I hate when that happens!
It does depend on the camera. If it is a single body style that you don't change the lenses then you are right, it can not be cleaned for less than a new one. But if you change the lenses then take the time to get it checked out at a camera shop. It could save you a lot of money when buying a new one.
/this one will cost more to fix than just getting a new one.
