my name is samantha. i was a bit of an idiot last year and took my camera into the water with me. ha ha
i splashed water on my canon hv20 last summer - trying to make a film in the sea. it sort of died a couple days later and i was told it would be too expensive to fix.
but i am having a look at it now. it works perfectly in VCR mode and when on camera mode it whines as it tries to open the lens cover but when i push it open with my fingers it is working almost fine. only problem is that it wont focus.? makes me think it might just be the motor in the focus pull and lens cover that is broken.
anyone have any suggestions on what to do? its a lovely little camera and i'd love to get it fixed. how much are repairs usually? where should i go? do you think it is worth it?
i looked at this company
Camcorder Repairs Glasgow
anyone know anything about them? are they honest?
thanks for all your help guys.
