Wine spilled on camera - repair or buy new one

Hello, At a new year's celebration a glass of wine was spilled when our table was knocked into. My Lumix DMC-FZ20 got wet from the spill. I don't think much liquid got on the camera, but it now does not work properly. I was able to take 2-3 pictures that night, but only sporadically and not since - so can't take pix. The camera will turn on, but not always off. Can't zoom. Cannot scan pix on the disk. Is it worth reparing or do I just spend any repair money on a new camera? Thanks!

It would be quite difficult to bring this camera back. I would suggest buying a new camera and keeping it away from the wine. Even if you did get a quote you liked and decided to get the camera repaired it is unlikely that the technician would be able to restore it to pre-wine functionality.

Wine was spilled into my Harmony 1000 remote

Have you remove battery from the remote immediately after wine spill? If not, your remote is gone and most likely not repairable.
