    Default Digital Cam repair

    my 2year old + Ricoh RR120 lens is stuck and thus cannot focus and cannot take anymore pics.

    I've written to Ricoh but they have not replied yet. Is it worth to repair for such malfunction ?

    Any recommendation for digit cam repair ?

    thanks in advance

    Do they have a service centre? If yes, you may have to go down personally get a quote from them before you decide your next move ...

    Default Ricoh Digital Service Centre

    Thanks!!

    manage to call the contact given and call the Service Centre in Bukit Merah.

    was told that there is a charge of S$15-S$25 to check the camera before quote.

    think it's worth ?

    or should get a new cam ??

    Don't waste your money . Get new or a used one. You can expect atleast S$100 repair bill, worth it ?

    Nowadays, those digital camera esp pro-sumer are meant to be dispose when it is broken just not worth doing the repairing. As the repairing bills is even more ex than a new camera.
    The reasons of this is that the manufacturer actually no longer have the parts as nowsdays, things are going damn fast. They are there to quote u a 'out-of-this-world' repair bills so that you get frightened off and buy a new camera instead. This is how they make their money.

    Default thanks !!

    thanks for all the advise. I think I'll forget about even paying that S$15-S$25 for a check...

    I guess I'll start hunting for a new digital cam...
