    Just buy a new camera. Why even bother reapiring if the cost is that much.

    I believe in getting equipment insurred for at least the first year ...

    As for the high repair cost ... the whole assembly line workers allowance is probably equal to the salary of a skill repair center technician ... so guess what ...

    Move on get it insured the next time.

    I see you got a lot of time.
    Why don't you go learn how to fix camera and then tell us how much the cost it should be.

    i collect classic cars and restore them ..
    so you own a car... then I think you understand in the event of a fender bender... you fender would cost much more than the repair cost of the LCD. Furthermore, damaging the LCD is equivalent of wreaking the whole front end of the car. Not only you have to replace the engine and electronics... I believe you have also to replace the whole front wheel assembly...etc then you have to do alignment/balancing of your wheel..etc. Also I believe the Vespa front spoke also have to be replaced and the % cost of repair would be significant too.

    Nikon will never survive in the car crash.

    whahaha Don't get out of Point here.

    One of the reason why i want to repair is cos i personally feel that Nikon is a good camera .
    so is canon . cos i have both brand .

    -each have it good point . so let not get into that .


    if you have better suggestion on how i can handle this problem then the alread said before suggestion .



    wow surpise that in less then 1 day it already hit over a 100 post

    show people do have their view on this .

    let not get personal here .
    but if you do enjoy bashing me for the fun of it .. i don't mind really . go ahead and take your hit and enjoy it .

    THis does not take away the Fact that MNC bully end user by way there can . or had install a bad system of aftersale service which . lack of chocie i need to give in .

    be it nikon or other brand . one way or another this exisit , this unfairness and this turn to blind eyes way of service .

    it become a problem shoving conest , and which ever best way to shove problem away . or blame it on end user . become some kinda right thing to do ..

    this is a small case . and the amount is small.

    i stay in many country . and $200 in sgd can be a month pay for some .. in other country .

    so to compare it by the mere price is unfair .

    what you are saying is . if your camera worth $2000 when is damage - cos you got the expensive one , is the maker duty to service you .
    and when a customer got a cheap one .. there can avoid , shove , ignore . or just simply name a huge repair price . and bully the end user away ?

    fairness is when all camera build by the maker is gaven the same amount of attention be it cheap or expensive .

    and the maker should also provide service and after sale . by the cost and not crazy huge price .

    chepaer product also = more user .
    expensive product = less user .
    as a MNC there know all this . so is their duty to set up support unit to service such need .

    if resposibility is just shove aside cos is a cheap camera .
    then there can sell it at a higher price , and as a comsumer i can choose not to buy it .

    just like printer and inkjet whom blackmail user by selling expensive ink refill .
    all this is unfairness . user know least of what going on till problem happen .

    now is just a cheap camera what is next .

    if there can bully you when is cheap . there can bully you when is expensive .

    You have obviously not read a single reply to your illogic statements, huh?

    Nikon DID NOT avoid, shove, ignore or bully you away. YOU CHOSE TO BACK OUT.

    Huge repair price? As explained 20 times, 200 dollars is not "huge".

    Nikon will service you whether you have an expensive or cheap cam. It's your own thick skull that can't accept that it'll cost $200 to repair the LCD on a cheap cam or expensive cam. Face it, the price is $200. Either you pay it, or you go bug Nikon. You are unwilling to accept viewpoints that are not your own.

    please relax and if you do try not to insult . thanks you .

    my thick skull is really non of yours to think of
    .

    $250 cam repair for $200 in my view is Bullying end user to back out .

    you are saying this cos $200 is small amount to you .
    IT must be a small amount to others .

    so is right for them to at least charge $200 to do any repair

    MNC would love your point of view then .

    I ask for way to slove a problem . and suggest to work out a better way to get a Camera fix .

    but some guy who is more keen at telling me forget my problem and give in .

    Plus you get so workup .. i suggest you ingore this thread since you can't handle it and give it a break .. i worry for your health as you seem more stress then me .

    I would be silly yo follow up with a repair cost of 90 %
    Would you ? in your point you would repair a $250 cam for $200 ? since in your view is cheap what .

    yo dude chill ok . like i said . don't se ethis as a unslove problem ..
    be more positive and slowly someone would be wise enough to come up with a win win answer .
    but in my view i don't think it would be from you .

    . . .
    if you felt that what i said is really aginst your view .
    i would be more then happy that you ignore this thread and you should move on . cos it seem that this thread is creating agony to you more then me ,

    but well is your choice . as long as you feel good about your view about me i will not stop you .

    i respect your view . and i hope you respect mine .
    no point bashing me here cos this don't add to sloving the existing problem .

    it only misdirect it to others thing .

    i do see some enjoy post bashing then giving creative or suggestive replay .

    some did give some useful advice .. and creative problem sloving way ..
    but some is really just kinda far from help , but add to problem .

    enjoy ok . i love reading some angry reply ( be it you ge angry at me or post bash me . i still wake up the same . and my day will not change , but this make me feel that some people just kinda sad . and need to cheer up and relax .

    photographier is a person who capture moment . usually sweet and nice. but i am surpise .

    relax and think of nice moment you have shot when you reply ok .

    i love photography . i hope you too .
    when you relax you see thing more clear .
    that is why i post this thread cos i wanna hear voice .
    be it good or bad . i will read it and think about it .

    there is alway more then one way to slove problem or do thing .

    Good day . and happy bashing or replying ok
    .

    how about buying it from here?
    http://forums.vr-zone.com/showthread...light=NIKON+L4

    current highest bid at $160 only. still cheaper than $200

    I would agree with wazzup that repairing it may cause more problems in future because the camera have been damaged and you won't know what damage can surface in future.
