Hello, I'm working in Saudi Arabia. My Elinchrom 3000 micro AS had a blast and few components have been damaged. Service from Elinchrom agent is almost inexistant. After a six month wait, they didn't repair-it then sent me a $2000 quote to do the work. I withdrew my unit and gave-it to a technician working for Canon's agent who's really good in flash repair. Except, he doest know how to get the parts other than the local agent - which will probably overcharge and take another six months to d

White screen? My camera has suddenly stopped working. When I press the red 'shoot' or green 'review' button, all I get on the display is a white screen. Pressing the shutter button does make it shoot, and the zoom and the flash work. I have just taken the card out and examined the jpg files - it is still taking pictures. So it's the display that is busted. I guess my question is: Is it worth the repair bill to get it fixed?

The camera's zoom is out and will not retract and the camera will not turn on. I don't have a camera repair shop anywhere near me, especially
