A friend of mine just gave me a broken 300D.
He bought it new (few years ago) and had it for 2 weeks. He tried forcing the memory card in backwards and bent some pins. later, while trying to straighten them, a couple of pins broke off.
I want to repair this camera and give it to a grandma that would get use from it. Can I buy parts from canon? I have an electronics background (biomedical equipment repair tech.) but have never cracked open a digital camera.
