Broken Camera, charges

Discussion in 'Digital Cameras' started by Matt Silberstein, Mar 29, 2005.

  1. Ok, it is going to cost me $150 to repair my F707. It seems to me that
    since I can't touch anything reasonable in that price range, that the
    F707 goes for about $350-$400 used, that it is worth my while to have
    them fix it. If they don't throw in a cleaning I will have them do
    that while they are at it. As usual, I wonder if they set the price
    based on the sale price used. Oh well.

    All in all, if I could be any animal, I would want to be
    a duck or a goose. They can fly, walk, and swim. Plus,
    there there is a certain satisfaction knowing that at the
    end of your life you will taste good with an orange sauce
    or, in the case of a goose, a chestnut stuffing.

    I think that a very reasonable price to fix that camera.

    I dont know what I would do without my 717 (other than buy another camera).

  3. I can't really say. It is probably about as easy a fix as can be, but
    that still probably means 2+ hours of work, plus processing, plus
    parts.
    Me to. I am almost certainly going to fix it.

    Generally, when they repair a camera they clean it, too. Kinda like a
    watch.

  5. That's what I figured. If I go for the repair I am going to tell
    myself that the cleaning was worth $100. A lie, of course, but it will
    make me feel like the repair was cheap.
