Here is the scoop! These cameras have lots of features and when they work they work just fine. The lenses are average in quality and work quite smoothly. The problem is, they are almost impossible to fix. They have all plastic gears which are not aging well. They are starting to disintegrate which render the camera useless. The entire body is one large plastic casting which does not allow disassembly to facilitate repair.
We will be happy to look at yours to see if it can be saved but it is a low percentage that are repairable. I don't mean to be a downer but this is what experience shows us. I will post some pictures when I get time so you can see what I am talking about. REMEMBER: All that glitters is NOT gold!
DO NOT SEND SANYO CAMERAS. THEY GENERALLY CANNOT BE FIXED.
