Nikon D7000 to Fix or scrap

Jan 27, 2016 5:05PM PST

Hi there,

I just sent in my Nikon D7000 for a repair, I had left it on a table infront of a window on a hot day then it was getting an F0 error and not adjusting they just got back to me with a £305 repair estimation...

Fit new spare parts Repair, replace and adjust printed circuit board. Firmware upgrade to the latest version Metering, shutter and exposure accuracy checked - recalibrated if necessary. Image capture, playback and delete functions checked. X-sync, hot shoe and speedlight function checked. Body depth, body focus, AF accuracy checked and recalibrated if necessary. Image Sensor, optics, mirrors, and viewfinder cleaned. Firmware version checked and updated if required. Check, test and clean equipment Required Parts 1H998-161 LENS CONTACT FPC UNIT 10.06 1 10.06 1H998-164 F-F0 PCB UNIT 12.60 1 12.60 1F999-115 << TOGO PCB UNIT 166.22 1 166.22 Labour Labour billable 59.63 1.00 59.63 Freight cost 5.06 Items total 248.51 Tax amount 50.71 Estimate total 304.28

It's probably a stupid question but with the service fee and shipping back on the decline being around £65 is it best to just recycle it for free? Go ahead with the fix? or get the camera back and sell it for spare parts, I really don't know what to do I expected it to cost under £100, a new body is costing around £350 I think, is this camera even worth getting back?

In fact rather than repair a t3i I caught a sale on a t5i. The t3i will go to my son for spare parts.

It would be cheaper to scrap and buy a new one.

You should go for a fix for your camera s if there is the problem that you are telling, then this price is worth it.... If you can look for a local repair shop, he can help you in half of the specified amount.
