The screen for my panasonic lumix dmc fs15 appears to be broken. I've only had it for six months! The display is now White with a small dark patch to one side, and diagonal lines across the screen. I was out hiking , and it was in my pocket. I don't recall it getting bashed but I guess that's what mustve happened! Is it worthwhile getting it fixed? Should I just buy a new one?

For Christmas this year, a friend gave me a Kodak EasyShare M753 7 mp 3x optical zoom. I have the use of only hand and I dropped the camera on my desk(about 1-2 feet). One side of the lens jammed and would not release and would not take pictures. I kept fooling with it and the black bars in the lens came out. I would think it needs a new lens. Could you tell me how I would go about getting it fixed and the approximate time and cost would this involve.

Review switch Having had no problems since new 18 months ago, my A85 is stuck in review mode leaving me unable to take any pictures. The switch now has no effect. The unit has been very well looked after and not subjected to any shocks or damage. Is this a return to Canon to fix it or would it be economical simply to buy a new one? (not under warranty)

Should I repair My G9 or buy a new one? It has been wet and cannot turn on. I opened it up to check the state of the electronics, and there's quite a bit of corrosion on the elctronics.

Lens Error I recently had a problem with my Casio QV-R4... every time I'd turn it on, the lens would retract and I'd get a "LENS ERROR" message on the screen.
