Default HELP: My Coolpix 775 is dead

All I get is sytem eroor when I turn it on. The lens won't retract into the camera anymore. Best Buy, where we bought it 18 months ago says I'm looking at $150 minimum just to look at it.

Should I fix it, or is it time to upgrade?

Thanks,

Take the battery out over night to see if the camera will reset it self. If not you might want to think about a new camera.

Give Nikon a call. Their out of warranty repairs are tiered and they can give you a pretty good idea what they would charge to repair it.

I took my 5700 to a local repair shop (the only one in my area that would even consider repairs on the 5700) and they quoted me a price of $295 just to crack the case. They couldn't give me an estimate of parts and labor beyond that. I called Nikon and they quoted me a flat rate of $205 and that included all necessary parts and labor. Turns out they covered my repairs under warranty anyway, so it cost me nothing in the end but I was throughly pleased with their repair practices even before I found out there was no out of pocket expenses.
