Hi

Most places will want $150-200 for this repair, all they do is charge you more than Nikon would charge you directly to do the repair for you, and they send it to Nikon and pay them to do it.

We are an AFFORDABLE digital camera repair business (Google: darntoothysam), and if you need your lens replaced we can help. Most lens repairs are only $65-70 including return shipping of the camera!

Another option for you would be to look for a defective camera online and switch out the lens yourself. Just watch out for the flash capacitors (~ZAP!~) and don't damage the ribbon cables and you should be fine.

If we can help then please let us know, hope this information has helped you.

Good luck from Darntoothysam com

Canon A75 Canon compact displays picture like a cracked window and shutter will not operate and will not playback. Powers on, lens extends OK, batteries OK. Tried with two different cards with same result. Nothing appears on LCD screen except this cracked window effect. Any idea what could be wrong ? Looks terminal to me.

I dropped my Sony Cybershot DSC-H50 and now the lens won't come out. It turns on and all but it just tells me to turn it off and on again, and it won't let me look at the menu. the circles in the lens are closed and it's pitch black looking at the screen and I tried pressing the shutter button once I turn it on and it just says to turn it off and on again. Also 2 times this occurred, when I could see with it but everything was still blurry and the lens opened up a little but just those 2 times.

Is there a way to "restart" my Casio Exilim EX-Z700? While I was taking a picture it seemed to freeze while it was trying to display the picture I just took - then, with the lens still popped out the screen stayed blank and it turned off, and now it won't turn on. The lens is still stuck in the "out" position. No buttons work. I tried to put it in the cradle to charge, and tried a different battery as well. Nothing works. Camera is dead!

Green light on camera back to the right of the 'delete' button continually flashes on-off about 1 second intervals as soon as battery is inserted as long as CF card is in place. Switching camera ON produces no visible operational indicators. Depressing "Menu" button flashes: hour glass; menu display; blank screen. Holding button down just cycles as above. Swapped lens, data card, battery, connected EH-5 power source; nothing makes any difference. Checked same lens in another D70 camera; it's OK.

Coolpix L18: The LCD screen is broken; just displays a large black "blob" on a white background. Would this prevent all other camera operations? When the camera is turned on, the green power light flashes, but nothing else seems to work. Camera will "beep" when shutter button is pressed, but lens never opens. Is this a LCD issue, or are there other problems as well?
