My Canon PowerShot SX230 HS

For many weeks the lens cover stuck when I turned the camera off. After turning it on and off for several times it eventually close. Well until last Monday when it finally stuck into a half open/close position. I took some pictures but was not happy to find out the corners to left up as well as the corner down to the right of the picture were black.

Winter Feb 2013

I really was disappointed and thought I, once again, would have to buy a new camera. Then I recalled it was either in the end of February or the beginning of March last year that I bought it. I looked for the receipt and found it. Yes, I bought it on March 7.

I called a camera service company. I told them I have this Canon ShowerPot camera. Ooops sorry I mean PowerShot. I was soooo embarrassed but at the same time funny. Hah-hah-hah-haaa 😀 Leif loves it. From now on it is, to him, ShowerPot.

Today I went to pick up my camera. The lens cover is fixed. Best of all, the repair was free of charge. Good it broke now and not three weeks later when I probably would have had to pay for the repair.

Thumbs up it will now last for many more years.
