Sony Cyber Shot

I have a Sony Cyber Shot camera and just cracked the screen last weekend... is it cheaper to get it fixed or just buy a new one?

    The screen on my camera cracked and not because of any carelessness on my part. I sent it in to Best Buy and I've just been told that it will cost $221.38 to repair. I think I can buy a very good new camera for that price. So much for the extended warantee that I purchased.

Hey lyoungren,
Digital camera repairs often exceed the value of the product, but you could bring the camera to a Geek Squad® precinct at a Best Buy™ store and they can send it out to get an estimate on the replacement of the LCD screen done. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

WHITE SCREEN LOOKS CRACKED


It is a crack and it's the result is the LED going out. ok so if you had this camera for more than 2 years... most likely a new one would be cheaper. If it's been bought not so long ago, a new LED screen wouldn't be overpriced.

Well, if you can arrange new LCD then you can change it by yourself. You need small screw drivers.

My screen is cracked


The camera will still work fine. The screen is only for framing your pictures and reviewing them. It will be hard to take pictures that way. Just get a new camera. It will be cheaper than repairing the screen.
