The outer lense is smashed badly. I would like to know whether warranty covers this type of damage and if not how much would it likely cost to replace. As far as I know the lenses inside are fine. Thks.

Warranty covers manufacturing defects only. Lens replacement would likely cost more than the camera is worth.

My outer screan on my Nikon D3200 is cracked, can I replace that screan?


Yes, it can be replaced. Send it to the Nikon USA repair depot or take it to a qualified camera repair man. It will not be covered under warranty so it will cost you (I don't know how much).

I dropped two of my lenses and I thought everything was fine. But when I take the picture i can't tell what I'm focusing on. Also, when I take a picture my lens makes a squeaky/scratchy noise.


Lenses have precision mechanisms and alignment of lens elements. If damaged, you should have them serviced by factory authorized repair centers. A lens damaged due to falling or impact will not be covered by warranty - however if under warranty and the work is performed by an unauthorized party, the remainder of any warranty will likely be void.

If the lenses are Nikor or Nikon, you should check the Nikon Service and Repair page. You can get an estimate by providing the information requested on that page.

I chose an "AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f3.5-5.6 ED VR" (your lens may be different) and listed it as dropped an got an estimate of $199 for repair.

I hope this helps & good luck!

My sony 50mm 1.8 is not working in auto focus and grinds when I manually focus


Sorry, but this is not user-fixable.

If the lens has not been dropped or misused, then send it to Sony for repair, it may even be under warranty. If they find evidence of accidental damage or misuse then they will send you a repair estimate and you can decide whether to go ahead or to buy a replacement. You might decide to buy a used replacement, but bear in mind that there will be no warranty and you cannot absolutely know the usage history of that lens. Pre-owned Sony lenses and cameras are often not a good choice as they are built to keep costs down rather than for durability.

When you get the repaired lens back then test it thoroughly and use it very regularly for a few months. I have found that Sony official camera repairs are not always to the highest standard and if you uncover a faulty or careless repair a few months after they return it to you they usually try to wash their hands of the problem.

Broken lense to police sunglasses. These glasses are approx. 12-15 years old but are much loved. Mod Police 2346 Col 647


As there is obviously no warranty any more, the only way is to see a good optician, best one who is selling police, and have both glasses replaced. It's impossible to replace only one because the optical lenses are now technically much more advanced as well as the colors. Whether it's worth the time and the expenditure for these old glasses you will have to decide after getting an estimate of cost for the new lenses and repIR

I ran my echo 14 inch with no air filter and now it wont start


Remove the muffler and check the condition of the piston/ring(s) and cylinder. If badly scored, you have probably drawn in enough debris to damage these items. The fix is to replace these parts--warranty, if any, won't cover this type of damage, and the cost of repair approaches the cost of a new saw. Hope this helps!

Scratched lense on 8x50, any idea where i can get (im in ireland)


The good news is that as your binoculars are a premier brand, there is extensive after-sales care and spares support so almost any fault can be repaired.

Scratched lenses can only be remedied by replacing the damaged lens; due to surface coatings on the lenses (both optical and Swarovski's exclusive non-stick coating) it's not possible to polish out the damage. Even if you could, it would alter the shape of the lens and therefore adversely affect it's optical properties.

The bad news is that a scratched lens is not covered by the manufacturer's 30 year warranty so you'll have to pay, and it won't be cheap! But it's definitely worthwhile in view of the extremely high price of the product when new.

You should click on this link to find out how to get the repairs done (or use this link if you're in the USA). Basically, the repairs are usually done by the Austrian factory except if you're in the USA .

Before having the binoculars repaired you need to consider whether the damage is functional or merely cosmetic. If it's the latter, then there's no need to have them repaired unless further damage occurs. If the damage actually affects the viewed image then it may still be acceptable if it's only infrequently evident (e.g. due to bright objects in the dark, or only when the Sun is at a particular angle).

My philips plasma tv fell off my stand and smashed the screen. there is sound coming bu no picture. the glass inside is smashed but nothing has run out of the screen. can it be fixed?


Yes it can be fixed most certainly. You have broken your Plasma screen and most certainly scratched your filter glass with the broken screen glass inside. Depending on where you bought the TV, and whether you have a cover plan, you may get the Tv screen & Filter replaced under accidental damage. If the TV is still under warranty and you dont have a cover plan, you may find the repair will be refused. If so, you could maybe buy the same tv off ebay as repairs or spares and fix yours.

BLACK AND WHITE STRIPED AND SMASHED GLASS LOOKING THING ON CAMERA


The problem you are describing is a problem with one of the chips in the camera that controls image processing. It seems to have failed and needs to be replaced. Following are the instructions to send your camera to Olympus for service.

http://olympusamerica.com/cpg_section/cpg_servicerepair.asp

Olympus will charge a flat rate repair fee for this product if beyond the one year factory warranty or the warranty is voided. The cost is $60.85 plus your local sales tax. This covers parts and labor, factory cleaning and diagnostic check, 6 month warranty and the cost of shipping the product back to you is all included in that price.

Lcd screen is broken


Normaly physical damage is not covered by warranties. Some vendors and manufactures sell additional insurance to cover such type of damage. You can also check with your home insurance in case your home insurance policy covers damage to appliances.

The cost of a screen replacement could easily exceed the cost of replacing the complete TV set. This type of service is normaly not done.

Smashed screen


Cosmetic damage is not covered by your manufactureres warranty - only if you purchased an additional warranty from the place you purchased it from , ( or if you paid for it with a credit card that offers accidental damage on electronic equipment) or some other external protection - would you be able to claim a new screen, sorry.

Buy a tomtom instead they are more sturdy :)
