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.

I have a panasonic lumix DMC-FZ20 camera that i installed an 8g memory card but it says memory card error


The DMC-FZ20 works with MMC and SD cards, 2GB or smaller. Your 8GB card is an SDHC card, which fits into the slot but is electronically incompatible.
