    Default Missing screws from returned camera

    The Canon Powershot G2 camera I sent for servicing had screws missing from its exterior casing. I only have myself to blame for not checking it carefully before acceptance. Does anyone know where I can find the same small screws? It's like those spectacle screws, those tiny ones.

    Ya, why should you have to pay for them if it's not your fault? Get them to send you some in the mail to save you a trip to the service centre.

    Haha... then your parents should send you back to hospital, and did like wht espn said. OT too much. Anyway, think should just go back to service centre and ask them for some free screws.

    Good call. Singapore Airlines is introducing flights from Singapore to Tokyo with a stop over in Bangkok. They must have anticipated your advice!

    actually screws like that.. really headache. by the time you called the screws.. i mean servicing dept, the costs of sending back.. and also very troublesome. but if let them off like that, also bad. why not try to call them to send the screws to you ?

    alternatively, you could even approach those optical shops, they have many those screws in abundant

    sometimes the screws different size lah.. den color not the same..

    anyway, root of problem is with the service engineer... so should ask them to rectify... once & for all...
