Repairing broken cameras instead of replacing them can save you money. First you should determine if it is worth repairing. For example, higher end, newer video cameras are almost always worth repairing. Major brand single lens reflex cameras (SLRs) should almost always be repaired as well. An exception to the rule would be if the cameras were heavily sand or water damaged.
Things to consider in regard to repairing your broken camera include:
- Cost of the initial investment
- Type of camera that is broken
- Age of unit (date of purchase- we do not commonly repair units over 10 years old)
- Cause for the problem
- Type of damage
More benefits of repairing your broken camera rather than replacing it include:
- Save money - Many cameras can be fixed economically
- Repairing an older SLR helps you preserve other investment in lenses and accessories
- Protect your investment - Some classic cameras are made of superior materials such as metal rather than plastic which makes them likely to retain their original value
- Save time - Repairing a broken camera eliminates the need to invest time in learning to operate a new model
The following checklist will help you determine if your digital camera is in need of repair:
- Your camera is visibly damaged or broken
- There is no power to the digital camera despite new batteries and/or a reliable power source
- All of the pictures taken have a distorted image
- Your digital camera has a “Lens Error”, “Zoom Error”, or “Focus Error”
