Hello,\n\nWhat is the going rate for a camcorder service?\n\nI have a canon hv40 and one half of the lens cover will not close. I\nthink it may have got sand in, when we went to the beach! I have been\nquoted £125 from a canon authorized repairer. Is that about right? I'm\nin the midlands.\n\nI will look into getting a UV lens to put on the front to stop this\nnext time. Is there a make that you particularly recommend?\n\nThanks,\nStephen.
