Unless an estimate is given you cannot get the insurance .So you can quote an amount equivalent to about 60% of the price of the camera , saying that the repairs will be done by yourself.
Since you have the Insurance it might be worth to take advantage , to get it and paying the extra should be considered if only they would allow it in the first place if the value exceeds a factor..

Windshield replacement


Some companies will repair a large crack such as your if it does not reach from one edge of the windshield over to another.I would recommend replacement.Most of the time you can see the crack slightly still after the repair and delamination is a possibility later on.check with your insurance company and you may be able to pay a $50 deductible to have it replaced.

Water damage


Remove the battery and let the unit sit for a day or two. It takes a lot longer to dry out than it seems. If it doesn't work after that amount of time, the water probably did permanent damage. The cell company's regular warranty covers defects, but their premium insurance should cover even water damage. If they don't cover it at all, the repair cost probably isn't worth it if you can get a deal on a new phone. Definitely worth a shot to call or stop in your cell company's physical store and chat them up.

Was rear ended and car frame is visibly bent down. My car is worth maybe 4 to 5 thousand and i dont know if the insurance company is going to consider it totaled or fixable. Its a 2001 Chevy Blazer,


You won't know until you take it to a body shop and get an estimate for repairs.
There may be hidden damage behind the bumper cover too.
The vehicle is a total loss with repairs cost more than 75 percent of replacement value with most insurance companies.

Broken Screen, Sanyo DP42647


If the LCD panel has broken and the tv is not covered by accidental damage repair insurance, then your only realistic option is to sell your tv as a spare parts donor and to buy another.

The LCD panel is overwhelmingly the single most expensive component of your tv; it actually costs more to buy a new panel than it does to replace the complete tv. If you do have insurance cover the company will usually just buy you an equivalent replacement model rather than repair yours.

Sorry, but not everything is realistically fixable.

I have a jvc plasma...apparantly it got banged while moving and now when i turn it on it has a place that looks like a crack but isnt and then thses weird "plaid" designs....can this be repaired?


No,the Plasma tv screen is cracks and damage.Take an insurance claim against the moving company.Sorry the plama screen is 90% of the tv,even u can buy the plama screen from the tv company to repair.They will sell the Plasma screen to u the same as a new tv.Even might cost more after the new plasma screen it put in.Now the tv only worth as for salvage electronic boards parts only now,not as a whole tv anymore.

My daughter hit my flatscreen tv with a broom now it has coloured lines running through it is it worth getting it fixed if so how much would it cost


I would assume its an lcd. She has broke the lcd panel itself. That is not worth getting fixed. The panel alone costs as much as a new tv.

Dismantling the camera to replace the screen is not a recommended task for the feint hearted - many small parts thus if damaged are irreplaceable. Jessops or you local photo store sell screen protecting tape- its like extra heavy and wide sellotape.. This will serve as a temp repair.
