No, I wouldn't say it's worth fixing, as the panel could have a burnt out backlight, or even circuitry issues. This could cost around 100-150 bucks to fix, or you can buy a new one for around 80. So, I would say, just buy a new one.

2yrs old. Went thru 3 sets of batteries to get 20 pictures. Dead again. What`s the story?


Sounds like you have a short in the wiring. This is repair shop stuff, or buy a new camera time. Usually, if it is a point and shoot , it is not worth sending for repair as you'll playas much as a new camera is worth. I would look for a new camera, personally. Good luck.

No picture, tried reset, connections all good, blinks once. Is this worth repairing or better to buy a new one?


Sounds like a main board fault. It will be best to contact the authorized service centre for Samsung in this case. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Viewing it in "Mosaic" will make surf easy. Surf the site with patience.

Player is quite old but used very little. Will not respond to remote. Do you think it is worth having it repaired. If so can you; refer me to an authorized facility in central Maine.


Test the manual buttons on the DVD player itself,see if it work,like play a DVD disc?The remote is the only thing is having the problems?Yes,try website like Remotes.com to buy an new original remote.If the DVD player itself is have a problems,not worth fixing,because DVD player devices are very cheap these day.U could buy a whole new one like 40-45 dollars.

There is sound but there's no video output. I've tried it on 2 different tvs with 2 different setups. I've used an HDMI cable as well as RCA plugs. Is the player kaput?


Sounds like it's time to get a new one. Used to be worth fixing these, but as cheap as they are these days, the labor and parts to fix it will cost you more than buying a new one! Sorry!
