On holiday my Canon Powershot A620 got slightly squashed in my bag - the top corner pressed down into the other panels and things are not fitting together perfectly.

It safe to unscrew the panels and bend things back to normal - with regard to voiding the warranty?

I have no idea. As a rule of thumb however, it's always safe to open someone elses camera...:G

On the other hand bringing a squashed camera to Canon? I doubt if they would honor the warranty...

If you do open it, watch out for the flash's capacitors. They'll zap you more than the few voltage the camera uses.
