Repair PC5 digicam or buy new one

by The Don / August 23, 2004 7:15 AM PDT

I got condensation in my 4 year old Sony PC5, it needs repair, and my batteries are worn out. Should I fix the one I have for $285, plus buy new batteries for $140, or should I just buy a new digicam and the extra batteries?

At 4 years I'll write don't do it. Not only will the fix be just for the issue at hand, but another part may fail shortly and you're stuck with another repair. Its time to move on?
