I have sat on my camera and i have damaged the LCD display. It is a Samsung digimax L60 serial number 36244464. I've downloaded all the pcitires so looks as though it just the LCD display that has gone. Is it repairable or worth having it repaired considering its 4 years old.
The repair could easily cost over $100....is it worth it to you or do you "lust" after some of the new models out there? ... Samsung Digital Cameras
I have a Canon Powershot S30 with a bad LCD. Otherwise working. I also have one with a working LCD, but the lens will not extend. I'd like to make one out of two. Is there a manual with exploded views available so I can do it myself or is that unrealistic. I have several cameras, so I suspect that a professional repair would cost more than the camera is worth. Like most electronic relics, it seems to be cheaper to replace than repair.

My Sony Cybershot Camera was dropped in water accidentally the other day. I have let it dry out as much as possible for 2 days. When I tried to use it, the camera still takes pics as it did before but it keeps saying "insert memory card" Anything more I can do? Is it worth trying it on with Sony as it's only 4 months old. Only thing is that I know that water damage is not normally covered. If they see water damage, will they bill me for the repair?

Sony cybershot DS W80 is not switching since mother board is u/s. It fell in sea water. suspected problem in LCD also. spares are not available other than sony company servicing centres which is very expensive. any repair shop who can repair in affordable price.
The repair to any camera damaged by sea water will cost more than the cost of a new camera since everything must be replaced because salt water is corrosive. Add the replacement parts to the labor costs and you now have a repaired camera that cost mo ... Sony Cyber-shot DSC-W80 Digital Camera

I own an Olympus Evolt E-500. Unfortunately, it was dropped and landed on the corner of the case near the battery door. The camera turns on, lcd screen, flash, and shutter seem to work, BUT pictures are black. Difficult to view anything thru viewfinder. Camera store told me they didn't know what was wrong, but would cost me at least $270 to repair. 1) does anyone know what is wrong, 2) can I fix it myself?
I found this camera available for purchase as brand new for $450. Spending nearly $300 to repair an older version may no be a wise choice. You may find there is a market for the camera in its current non-working condition on eBay.With that ... Olympus EVOLT E-500 Digital Camera
My SD850is was dropped,there is a slight split on the bottom (looks like 2 screws are missing). When you turn the camera on, it says "lens error - restart camera" and then shuts off. It does show the opening picture on the LCD but then turns dark and shuts off. I've had the camera for about 2 yrs. Anything I can fix or is it worth the price of repair which would cost approx. how much?
From searching the internet, it sounds like the lens needs to be replaced and the cost of the repair would be about as much as buying a new camera. thanks for responding. now i have to go thru "what to buy" again....... ... Canon Digital Cameras

I have an Olympus SP-550UZ digital camera. It was dropped onto the floor & now the LCD screen & the view finder are black. I took all the screws out of the back to repair it, but the back panel will not come off. I do not have any covered screws around the view finder. There is a screw under the flash which I can't get to. Any suggestions?

The camera will not turn on after being dropped. When I switch it from off to on, the green power LED flashes briefly. The lens does not move or attempt to extend. The LCD backlight does not illuminate. The LCD appears to be slightly damaged: there is some slight non-uniformity visible when I shine a strong light on it.

I have an Olympus E-510 which is just two years old. The camera went completely dead on me with no notice. I brought it to a camera repair store to see if they could find out what the problem was. We tested the battery and it was fine. I then brought it to a camera repair specialist who told me that it was the circuit board. He wouldn't repair it because he said it wouldn't be worth it. Is it worthwhile sending in to Olympus to get a quote only to have them say the same thing or should I j

Olympus 570uz is not working and is not worth the cost of professional repair (as told to me by Olympus), so I'd like to take apart and see if I can get lucky fixing it myself.

My next step is to take out an x-acto blade and start cutting, so please let me know the secret. Tried finding a repair manual online with n

Dropped my pentax k100d. Lense is fine, Camera says card locked, will not delete or fire shutter. Sent for repair, was told circuit board was damaged and quoted £306 for repair. Is it possible to buy a new circuit board and have it fitted as I can not afford the quoted amount on repairs, Also this a great camera.
