Last fall while shooting pics with my original digital rebel, it just died. No power, nothing.
I consulted all the forums I could find and found a few things to try. I work in an electronics factory, so replacing small parts wasn't a problem. However replacing the fuses that they suggested, didn't seem to help.
I've gotten a new one since then and don't REALLY need to get this thing fixed, but I wouldn't mind just having it in the car.
I've already got a ton of CF cards for it (anyone want to buy any?) and accesories, so I'd like to get it repaired.
The problem is, it's just not something I want to sink much money into.
Do any of you know a good place to have repairs done that's reputable and cheap, or just a garage operation?
It's something I'll look for on occasion, but it's not high on the priority list. I thought I'd ask here and see if anyone had any insight.
Actually, I'm also looking for a camera repair, though mine's not digital. Canon AE-1, 35mm, no auto anything, but the winding mechanism is jammed. I'm reluctant to try anything myself, due to a near-total lack of appropriate tools and experience. The only place around here that might be able to do the work wants my firstborn as down payment, with various limbs payable upon completion.
Also, due to hours at work being cut severely, the soonest I'd likely be able to get this done is early next year, when I get tax refunds back (if any), so it'll have to be someplace likely to weather at least the next eight months of havoc in the economy.
