I went from Tianmu into an area somewhere around Minquan and Songjiang(??) to a Canon repair shop. Sorry, I don't have the address; but I'll check tomorrow with my wife, who may remember better.

I didn't end up getting my camera fixed there because the repair bill would have been greater than the cost of buying a new camera. Grr.

OK, I found it. It's actually a little south of Nanjing East Road at 20 Jilin Road (a little west of Songjiang). There's a map and mass-transit directions (in Mandarin) here.

台北市吉林路20號
tel. 2537-1166
hours 9:30-18:30

The repair desk is on the second floor.

Good luck.

Yep, this is Canon Taiwan (aka. Rainbow)... if you purchased your Canon gear w/ warranty (Gong Shi Huo.. sp?), this would be the place to take your stuff (don't forget to bring your warranty card). This is also where the camera shops bring their Canon warranty repairs (so you could save some time by going direct instead of hassling w/ the shops).

For those interested, they also do maintenance work such as sensor cleaning, calibration, etc. Maintenance work and / or repairs on non-warranty items are ok too, but cost is significantly higher.

Camera Repair Shop

Or somewhere to have my Canon EOS350 looked at. Dropped it during the last hour of a 7 day hike (aghhh!!!). Short drop (it fell from an unlocked carry bag when I picked up the bag) but there is a little rattle in the camera body that I'm pretty sure wasn't there before. Camera still takes pics so I am hoping it is nothing but want to have it examined. Any recommendations?
“Everywhere else in the world is also really old” said Prof. Liu, a renowned historian at Beijing University. “We always learn that China has 5000 years of cultural heritage, and that therefore we are very special. It appears that other places also have some of this heritage stuff. And are also old. Like, really old.”

I stupidly assumed these hours meant daily and went there on Sunday. It looks like the hours on their website aren't even right anymore.

The hours posted on the doors are currently:
1F store: Mon-Fri 9:00 - 19:00; Sat 9:00 - 17:00; Not open Sun/national holidays
2F repair center: Mon-Fri 9:00 - 18:00; Not open Sat/Sun/national holidays
