My Canon 350D is no longer raising the AF mirror when it takes a photo. Instead, it looks like this when the mirror flips up. not swinging

This results in a photo that is half black due to the sensor being obscured.

This camera is 9 years old and has never been dropped, mishandled or subjected to harsh temperature or humidity. Is there any common maintenance I can do to get this thing swinging properly again?

Given the age of the camera, i think it would be best to just replace it with new model. –  Sergey Matvienko Jul 1 '13 at 5:41
