Digital camera repair

Hi, I've had a sony cybershot DSC (can't recall the model right now) camera for the past 2.5 years. It's always worked perfectly, however, a week ago the lens stopped coming out and according to reviews I've read online this isn't something a little handiwork can fix. HOWEVER, it seems that we are not able to recover the original receipt, and I don't recall getting any sort of extended warranty for it, therefore I imagine it's warranty would be finished by now anyways. I was wondering where can I get something like this fixed inexpensively (I live in NS btw) I can't go to the store or send it back to the company since I have no proof of purchase & I can't exactly afford to throw $300 down the drain for another camera right now... merci!
