Specialized Canon camera repair shops are becoming increasingly accessible throughout the world. Fortunately, the well-built cameras don't need an excessive amount of repairs. Still, knowing that there are places you can take a broken Canon camera to get fixed is comforting.

About Canon Cameras

Canon is one of the most trusted brands in the camera industry. Both professional and amateur photographers appreciate Canon cameras for their outstanding workmanship and innovative features. The company has a full line of point-and-shoot digital cameras as well as professional-grade DSLR versions. All new Canon cameras come with a one-year limited warranty to guard against damage and defects.

Direct Canon Camera Repair

Canon prides itself on its outstanding cameras. However, no camera can shoot exceptional photos forever. At some point, Canon owners will find themselves looking to get their cameras repaired. If you own a Canon camera that is in need of repair work, keep in mind that the company doesn't pay to fix affected cameras that are out of warranty.

If your warranty is still valid or you don't mind paying for the repairs yourself, then you may opt to deal directly with Canon. The company has a website, which allows camera owners to request a repair online by following these four steps:

  1. Request estimate. Fill out the online estimate request for the cost of repairing your camera.
  2. Repair information. Provide information about the problem with your camera.
  3. Repair checkout. Provide warranty information or see how much repair will cost out-of-pocket.
  4. Review repair request and shipping. Review and print your repair confirmation sheet. Ship your product with the repair confirmation sheet to a Canon factory service center.

Repair Tip

When cameras break, some owners try to fix the problem themselves. If you own a Canon camera, this option is not recommended. The company uses specific parts that are unique to Canon cameras. By replacing them with generic versions, you risk compromisng the integrity of your camera. In addition, you may further exacerbate the problem, which could lead to a bigger repair bill should you have to get help from a professional technician.
