Opinions needed: Fix & sell Canon A1, sell broken or just scrap?

Discussion in 'Canon' started by Steve Bougerolle, Apr 6, 2004.

  1. I've got a Canon A1 here that I bought a few years which has
    broken down on me. There's no response at all from the meter or
    shutter, seems an electronic fault rather than a mechanical one.
    It broke down just the same way once before and I had it fixed, but
    obviously the repair didn't hold up. Anyway, I need to decide
    what to do with this, and since it's a spare camera and I've pretty
    much decided to go digital I see three options:

    1) I could pay to get it fixed and then try to sell it.

    2) I could just try to sell it as is, hoping somebody would buy
    it who was confident of being able to fix it himself.

    3) I could give up and use it as a paperweight.

    What would you all do in this situation?

  2. Thanks all for the great (and prompt) response! I think I will
    eBay it, tonight or tomorrow.
