Broken screen Magellan roadmate 1212


Hi.
It is actually much cheaper to buy a new unit than to repair it.
It cost around $150 and above, depends on how crack it is and what model of magellan you're using.

I have a broken screen on a sony nav-u navman gps unit. could this be repaired and what would the cost be? many thanks


They can be repaired an EBAY is your best option of spare parts for these devices.

Prices can vary and if you feel confident in openin the unit yourself the price would be the cost of the part.

Otherwise you may be looking at sending it to a reputable shop for repair where the cost would be almost as much as buying a new one.

My Garmin GPS touch screen has no response when I touch it


The cost or replacement/repair exceeds the cost of a new unit. If its not under warranty 'drop it" and claim on insurance

Dropped c330 only half the screen visible now. Fix or toss? Won't send to garmin for $150 repair when I can purchase a new GPS for that amt.


You nailed it -- I had the c550 which (originally) was $500 or so & I saw it recently on sale (since they discontinued that model/series) for $200. The FM Traffic receiver costs the same as what they want for the repair... Unless there's something sentimental about it (or something else special), I'd get a new one instead. However, don't toss the old one necessarily -- some people will pay for broken pieces of electronics (not much, but it's better than nothing)... Just my opinion. Good luck!

Damaged LCD screen on ditial camera


You may be able to fix it if you can find a replacement screen. I usually search ebay for a broken camera with other problems that I can cannibalize. Here's some examples on LCD replacement. Don't recommend that you try this yourself, unless you have some experience and are comfortable with electronics.

Otherwise, the cost of professional repair is usually beyond the value of this camera. A better option is to sell the camera on ebay for other repair hobbyists to attempt replacing the screen for themselves. You actually may get a good price for the camera IF it's still capable of taking pictures.

Coolpix L15 broken inner screen ?


GENERAL, REPAIRS TO THESE TYPE CAMERAS ARE NOT COST FRIENDLY. THEY USUALLY HAVE TO BE MAILED TO A REPAIR CENTER, THE TIME FACTOR IS LONG AND THE COST IS USUALLY STEEP. REPAIRS ARE USUALLY NOT VERY EFFECTIVE, UNLESS THEY ARE FACTORY REFURB. UNITS. THESE ARE EXCELLENT. I WOULD SAY THAT YOU WOULD PROBABLY BE MONEY AHEAD TO JUST REPLACE THE CAMERA. SORRY, BUT MY RESEARCH HAS NOT POINTED TO REPAIR JOBS ON THINGS LIKE THIS. JUST NOT COST EFFECTIVE. HOPE THIS GIVES YOU SOME IDEAS.

Tv broken


Cracked inner screeen means broken plasma panel and most likely a unit not worth repair.
