Re: Best place to send for repair

You local Fuji agent is about the only place to send it

And they will as like as not make an inspection fee.

I drop my nikon. now the shutter freezes and it only takes half a picture

There is a large spring on the side of the mirror box that latches to part of the aperture unit. Impact caused the small post it hooks on to break off, allowing the spring to push in the side of the shutter case, which causes the shutter blades to stick part way. This requires a replacement of the aperture unit, and as Nikon stopped selling parts several years ago, requires you to send it to them for repair.

Let wife use camera over weekend. She says some guy spilled a big cup of water on it. No power. No visible water or residue. Tried disassembly of back for visual inspection. The back cover would not...

There's a trick I've read about for cell phones with water damage, it's placing the damaged phone in a bowl of uncooked rice - completely covering it. Leave it for a couple days & check it out. 1st I would remove the battery & dry it best as i could and maybe swab inside battery compartment with a q-tip and then let the rice try & absorb what it can for 2-3 days & see.

Simply dropping it may cause that.Digital cameras are fairly delicate and cannot take a beating.Call Kodak or a nearby camera repair center.They probably see this alot and should be able to give you a fairly close estimate.I will tell you now that labor is usually around $50-$60/hour.Plus you would have S&H.Also on the parts,a repair center usually has a minimum parts price mark up of 20%.Depending on how much you paid for it,you may want to replace it.Also,if a place tells you to send it in and we'll look at it,call elsewhere.This happens so often that any place should have a good idea of what it needs.Remember to keep the memory card whether you send it for repair or not.Definitely do not send it with the camera because if you send it in and decide it is too much,the place I used to work at would take the unclaimed items at the end of the year and have a silent auction.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.I really encourage responses so I can follow up properly as I know where you stand and asking someone else restarts all the explaining because we cannot see other 'Expert's' responses.Good luck,Greg

Samsung s860 camera got dropped turns on but screen is only white

dropping the camera might have caused damage to your LCD screen, best advise I could give is to send it in for repair

check if you can still view old pictures or if the on screen displays are visible, it will narrow down if the problem is with the lens or the screen

hope this helps

No power

on power and picture issue, send to repair center.. it would appear that either the door is not making good contact or the battery compartment needs cleaning... after this then repair

the other problem appears to be the ccd and you could try reset through the menus

Cracked screen

Hey benno82,
You could call the manufacturer and they should have a list of authorized service centers in your area, or they could provide you with an address of an authorized service center you could mail the camera in to get serviced. You could also bring the camera to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they could send it out to an authorized service center to have an estimate done. As far as how much it would cost it all really depends on what the new LCD screen cost and if there is any other parts that need to be replaced. I will say that digital camera repairs often exceed the value of the camera, but it doesn't hurt to get an estimate done. I hope this helps!

Kodak Easy Share Camera My baby accidentally dropped it on the floor.Zoom won't

Hey pooda2,
It does sound like there is damage to your lens. Manufacturers’ warranty does not cover damage but a Best Buy™ performance service plan with accidental damage and handling would cover the repair. To find out if you have a performance service plan with adh on the camera you should call 1-888bestbuy. If you do have the plan you could bring your camera to a Geek Squad® precinct in a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out for service. If you don't have a performance service plan with adh on it you could still have it sent out to get an estimate on how much it would cost to repair it, but often with digital cameras the cost of the repair exceeds the value of the camera.

Go Ahead. Use Us.

Exlim camera

any kind of sound when it is turned on or off is usually from damage to the lens. Send it into repairs and they will send you an estimate on what it would cost to fix it. Give them a call at 800-706-2534 option 2.

Zoom lens jammed

this is a protection mechanism against further damage when the zoom/lens mechanism is obstructed. It's a very delicate mechanism, and it's not easy or cheap to fix. The gears probably got misaligned or broken when you dropped the camera. You should get a repair estimate, and only if you decide you'd rather trash it try opening it up again. Good luck
