Cracked Screen- Rough Estimate?

Hi.
I dropped my camera while walking out of my house and it landed on some rocks.
I tried turning on the camera but the screen is completely black except for some white cracks on the upper right hand corner.
I have been informed that I would have to send it out to Sony to get a estimate but that requires me to pay a whopping 40 dollars-just to get a price.
Thus, I would like to ask everyone here for an estimate.
I am still able to record videos but since I was in video mode before, I can not change to picture mode because the screen is broken.

A repair is not likely to be an economical proposition
The cost of replacement and shipping will be well on the way to a new -more uptodate one.

Photo stores do sell a protective tape - self adhesive clear patches to fix over screen to protect them from scratching.
It might also serve as a repair too.

Hi,i dropped my sony WX9. Bought it in June 2011, dropped Sept 2011. It was a short drop. Now the lens opens only halfway and keeps clicking and on the screen i get the prompt: turn the camera off and then...


Hi,
There are three ways of repairing,
1- Contact nearest Sony Service Center and they will estimate you to replace the Complete Optical Unit, which would be costly but reliable,

2- In second way, Contact any repair man nearby and he will open the Optical Unit Assy. and and try to fix it (most probably it is only misaligned).

3- Third method is free of cost and chances are 50/50, the face of optical unit (Lens) keep down and keep press it normally and in the meanwhile turn its power on. The Lens of the camera will try to open keep it press slightly not with full power :) . After few tries turn it off. After that in normal way turn it on and hopefully it will work fine again.
If No.3 method successful keep remember me :)
Thanks

Lens won't come out after dropping camera.


Only lightly toasted. The drop likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. There is no safe DIY fix for either condition, but the camera can be repaired by the manufacturer or at a local camera shop. Make sure to get an estimate first -- you may need to decide if the camera is worth the cost of the repair.

Dropped sony camera randomly turns on batery is


The drop likely damaged the lens tube (housing) or jarred the zoom mechanism off of its track. Either condition causes the camera to shut down to prevent further damage. There is no safe DIY fix, but the camera can be professionally repaired. Contact Sony through their web site or visit a local camera shop (not the department store) and get a repair estimate -- you will need to decide if the camera is worth the cost of the repair.

Cracked Camera


This depends on your warranty, if it covers cracks and the product being dropped I'm sure they will give you a new one to replace it, or find parts to repair it.

My a590 digital camera has lines on the lcd display after it banged on the counter


Hi There, If your screen still lights up, the LCD panel is probably cracked. Take to shop for estimate: Around $120.00 for repair.

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!

Sincerely,
Allan
Go Ahead. Use Us.
