My little point and shoot IXUS 115 HS stopped working. The lens wouldn’t come out, it would stick, and the mechanism would make a grind-y noise.
I got the Stylus 1 to be the at hand point and shoot. Well, a few weeks ago, dug out the IXUS to get the SD card, and dropped it on the carpeted floor. As the battery was still in it, I decided to power it up.
It’s working again. Whatever was causing the lens to make grinding noises is ‘fixed’. I guess it was a combination of “Did you turn it off and back on?” and “Just give it a good whack” repair.
