Hi, new to GZ with a camera question.

I bought a Canon SX130IS digital camera 18 months ago from a NZ brick and mortar store for $230. Recently it has developed a faulty zoom rocker switch. When you switch the camera on it always zooms to the max without you touching the switch. Switch does nothing.

I took it back to the store and they directed me to the manufacturer who said “The minimum repair cost would be $104”.

Anyone have any experience with this type of fault and might know if it would cost more than $104 to repair such a fault? I don’t think I want to spend more than $104 on repairs. Thanks

IMHO not worth fixing for a camera that cheap. If you have a friend who can mess with it then give it to them, may be a simple fix, though parts would be difficult to get. Sometimes you can get them on ebay cheaply.
