\015\012Short of that working, it's usually not cost effective to have it repaired, unless you get a really good deal from a buddy who knows how. Get an estimate before considering service, since, as you've probably guessed, it's often better/cheaper to just get another new one. Good luck, and hope this helps.

My camera just starting making clicking noises, then it would not shut properly, then back, white screen. I tried using new batteries, different batteries, cleaning the battery area but no luck. It has no juice at all now. At first I thought the computer inside was tripped. Maybe the salt water affected the batteries? What is the address to mail for repair? Do I have to pay ahead to look at? Is there a minimum charge. Monica [email protected] 619 593 8035
