G12 image viewer kaput, camera is fine . i am told that this cannot be fixed ...any suggestions ? .I see canon still sel
I don't think Canon still sells the g12. It is over 7 years old. What you see for sale are cameras that stat in a warehouse for years and years.
It might be that parts for such an old camera (which was always a consumer level camera, not designed to be used forever) might be hard to find. But that doesn't mean there are no parts. If you got that opinion from a repair shop, try another one and see if they have better luck finding the parts.
The other possibility is your camera has so little value that the technician didn't want to give you a repair quote which was higher than the value of the camera.
Have you considered just getting a "new" used one? They start at around 160.
