I've never dealt with Sony repair so I'm not sure. Usually for out of warranty and/or abuse damage (regardless if it was your fault or not), a hefty sum may be requested. I fried the circuits in my E-10 once, and it cost me $400, Olympus' standard fee to get an E-10/20 fixed out of warranty. Contact Sony tech support and ask them what it would cost to fix a damaged digicam, that's the only way.

One day (and we can hope!) we might be able to buy bits for our cameras like our washing machines etc. Go into a store, see lots of bags hanging up, "Sony camera case body Sir? with lens assembly?" - No problem! Recycling/repair is environmentally friendly and reduces global warming!

We can only dream! Where do all the broken cams go to anyway? Is anybody collecting them, like parts for cars? There are plenty of cams out there and new models coming out all the time. Has anybody started a web site for broken cams yet. Steve hasn't got a section up so they must all be out there working as new!

Expect a ludicrous amount .. i'd start shopping for a new one. They are going to pummel your pocket.
